MEET TEQUILA'S RELATIVE : MEZCAL
MEZCAL DISTILLERY SINGLE DAY EXCURSION
Our mezcal tour brings you off the beaten path for a scenic adventure into the land where a local family has been producing mezcal for over four generations.
Join us for a road trip that will take us to the frontier of Jalisco and the neighboring state of Colima to a little village called Zapotitlán de Vadillo, cozily nestled at the foot of volcanos and surrounded by magnificent mountains.
Learn first-hand from the maestro mezcalero how to distinguish the variety of agaves; their properties and their single taste at the end of the process. Also, we will be instructed as to the agricultural, economic and cultural context of mezcal.
We will visit a palenque (place where mezcal is produced) for a step-by-step explanation of how the agaves are cultivated, cooked, fermented and distilled; a process which, unlike tequila, is still very artisanal and rustic.
Enjoy 100% organic and natural mezcals; these are not commercial brands therefore they are difficult to come across outside of Mexico.This is a single day trip: we leave early in the morning and are usually back around dinner time.
