Private tour to artisan local Mezcal factories and customized degustation

Live the Mezcal experience in an authentic way. On this tour you will learn why mezcal is a great Oaxacan tradition, why there is a great variety of Mezcales and you could even find the ideal Mezcal for your palate.

The tradition of mezcal for the Oaxaquean is deeply rooted in their culture, since it is present in the various traditional celebrations such as the Day of the Dead, festivities of each town or even in healing rituals.

Apart from our visit to traditional and artisanal palenques of Mezcal distillation, we will close with a flourish with a personalized tasting in one of the most emblematic mezcalerías in the city of Oaxaca, where you can find more than 180 varieties of Mezcal. In the In-Situ mezcalería, the mezcalier can propose at least 3 varieties of mezcal (based on your tastes) so you can find your favorite Mezcal. Mezcal of magueyes such as Tepextate, Madrecuixe, Tobalá, Espadín are popular.
