Mayahuel, the tequila goddess, resides at Casa Magna Marriott Resort in Puerto Vallarta. For six years, some of the finest tequila distilled in Mexico has been bottled exclusively for Casa Magna Marriott. Sold only in Puerto Vallarta at Casa Magna, this tequila is a sublime experience for lovers of the distilled spirit of blue agave.

Hundreds of blue agave plants are part of the landscaping at Casa Magna, and it is the hearts of these same plants that are harvested when mature to be distilled into a most wonderful tequila. Casa Magna bottle five grades, blanco, joven, reposado, añejo, and extra añejo, all of which can be enjoyed at their bar or purchased at the hotel. Classes in tequila appreciation are offered at Casa Magna by their sommelier, Audrey Formisano.
As part of our journalistic duties, we sat down and savored a glass of Casa Magna extra añejo. After this experience, we will never again be able to think of tequila as a drink to be downed with a slice of lime and a pinch of salt. Served in an ouverture tequila glass, this was as good as the finest whiskey or cognac. To experience this yourself, stop by Casa Magna Marriott.
