Casa Del Sol Tequila, the tequila co-founded by Mexican-American producer, director and entrepreneur Eva Longoria, announced its first-ever tasting room at Susurros del Corazón, Auberge Resorts Collection, in Punta De Mita, Mexico. The tasting room includes multiple sensory experiences bringing together food inspired by the flavors of Mexico’s culture and landscape.


“We are so honored to bring this one-of-a-kind experience to the peninsula of Punta De Mita at Susurros Del Corazón as we want locals and tourists alike to celebrate and experience Mexico’s vibrant culture, traditions and culinary wonders,” said Eva Longoria, co-founder, Casa Del Sol. “In developing the brand, I wanted to ensure we paid homage to the many generations that preceded before us in creating the beautiful spirit of tequila.”


Authenticity to Mexican heritage is the No. 1 pillar of Casa Del Sol, which is why the brand chose to partner with the new luxury resort, Susurros Del Corazón. Each day, guests can experience the Magic Hour that inspired the brand’s emblem, “the agave sunset on the ocean with the Goddess of Tequila, Mayahuel, emerging.”
