A comprehensive introduction to mezcal and Oaxaca through cultural immersion—in a seriously fun and engaging package.
This experience is designed for longtime mezcal aficionados, the newly converted, as well as their family and friends who may not know they love mezcal yet! Meet producers of some of the most traditional mezcales in the region, visit palenques utilizing distinct regional production methods, experience the greatest diversity of maguey species in the world, and enjoy spending each evening in the beautiful, bustling colonial center of Oaxaca City.
This experience is a concentrated and serious introduction to the world of Oaxacan mezcal. We visit mezcaleros producing mezcal with both artisanal and ancestral methods in two different villages. You will touch, smell, and taste all facets of mezcal production, including such millenarian techniques as maguey hand-crushed with wooden mallets, and distillation in clay and bamboo. You will be up close and personal with the people, processes and culture that come together to create the most exciting spirit in the world.
Our friendly, knowledgeable team is there to interpret and help you understand the fascinating traditions kept alive in rural villages for centuries, as well as helping you navigate the abundant and complex world of Oaxacan cuisine.
