The Matices Hotel de Barricas, located in the town of Tequila, Mexico, is allowing tequila fans the opportunity to immerse themselves in tequila culture by not only offering a good drink, but allowing guests to sleep in a giant tequila barrel as well.

In a statement on Facebook, hotel leaders said that “it’s a concept that interweaves the alchemy of tequila with the senses of the human being, a place that invites us to follow the same path as a tequila experiencing a shared stimulus.”

The hotel claims to be the only hotel in a tequila factory and with barrel-shaped rooms surrounded by an agave field.

Located about 45 minutes from Guadalajara, the town of Tequila is the only place in the world to officially produce the spirit.

Guests can choose from more than 20 different barrel room options that offer both King and Queen sized beds.

During your stay, you will find that each of the barrel rooms are named after a type of tequila that’s made at the distillery and include murals that represents the brand they are named after.

Rooms come with showers, Wi-Fi, large windows and a porch to view the area’s agave fields and mountains.

Because the hotel is connected to a working distillery in an agave field, guests will have the chance to tour the distillery, including tastings, and the opportunity to design your own tequila bottle.

And if you’re not interested in sleeping in a tequila barrel, the hotel offers several rooms that aren’t barrel-shaped.

The best part about this experience is that if you’ve consumed too many drinks during your tour, you won’t have to venture far for rest.
