This single-day tour is based in the picturesque village of Comala, Colima. You will visit traditional mezcaleros around the Nevado de Colima volcano in southern Jalisco.
This region is the likely birthplace of distillation in western Mexico: mezcal has been made here since 1616, and the distillation of vino de cocos is even older. The region’s mezcaleros continue to distill in internal condensation, wood-and-copper “Asiatic” stills introduced to the region by Filipinos in the sixteenth century.
You will visit two traditional mezcal distilleries (tabernas), learning about production and tasting one of the most small-batch spirits in the world. You’ll see first hand how this unique regional tradition differs from other regional mezcals.
The experience is led by a bilingual local guide with over 10 years of experience in the region.
