What you'll do

Would you like to learn more about Mexico and its cultural diversity through its ancestral spirits? Then this unique experience is for you. We will meet in a charming courtyard in the heart of the city of La Paz a few blocks away from the malecon, where our Mexican spirits club is located and there we will perform the tasting and pairing in a calm and relaxed atmosphere. We will taste more than 10 different types of spirits from different states of Mexico with their respective pairings.

In each of these spirits that we will taste, we will learn about their elaboration process, origin and the right way to drink them with their corresponding pairings..

We will begin with the state of Jalisco with its traditional and world famous Tequilas in its three varieties, Blanco, reposado and añejo. We will continue with the state of Guerrero, Durango and Oaxaca famous for their exquisite artisanal mezcal, then we will pass to our state, Baja California Sur with its damiana liquor. The activity lasts approximately 90 minutes and is an experience that will be perfect to spend a pleasant time in the afternoon enjoying meeting other visitors, as well as local people from La Paz.

Hello! We are a group of friends who are passionate about spirits produced in Mexico since ancient times. We carry out our tastings and pairings in a small tequila club we have in the center of La Paz, where we usually meet once or twice a week to taste craft spirits from all over the country that you will not find anywhere else in the city . We do tastings with different pairings accompanied with spirits such as tequila, mezcal, damiana, Sotol, raicilla, etc from different states of Mexico such as Jalisco, Oaxaca, Guerrero, Chihuahua, Durango and Baja California Sur. In each tasting we talk and discuss the process of elaboration of the spirits, the history and the flavors of each one of them and how to collect the different flavors with the food of our country.

What a magical opportunity to sample so many tequilas, mezcals and tequila blends...being able to ask questions of people passionate and well-versed on the origination, variety, production of the spirits, food pairings, etc. all with no pressure to buy a thing...just to enjoy the experience! Who knew pairing these spirits with fruits, cheeses & dark chocolate would be so delicious? Highly recommend!

Lalo and Johnny made our evening a delight! Their knowledge on the subject of traditional Mexican distilled spirits was a rare find far beyond the tourist experience. We learned so much, laughed, nibbled on wonderful food pairings and sat under the moonlight in a lovely garden. If all of our all adventures in La Paz are this fantastic we will definitely return for more!

What a great evening with delicious spirits, tasty food, and knowledgable hosts. We really enjoyed the location in the courtyard. The hosts have a genuine love for tequilla, mezcal, and damiana. The advertised length was 1.5 hours but we were there almost 2.5 hours, FYI. The end of the program there is an opportunity to buy spirits, but there certainly wasn't any pressure to do so. Tip them well if you don't make a purchase!

We had a wonderful evening with Eduardo and John. They were both very passionate and knowledgeable about the different liquors made in Mexico and the regions where they originate. Eduardo gave a very informative presentation of the differences between each type of tequila and mezcal, in regards to flavor and production. The tequilas and mezcals they selected were truly unique and artisanal. Another thing that we thoroughly enjoyed was the food pairings with the various spirits. Being from the US, tequila is not traditionally paired with food, so it was a new and wonderful experience. We could tell a lot of care went into the selection of the pairings and highlighted the different regional cuisines. By the time we finished the tasting, it felt like we were having drinks with old friends.

Want a great way to get to know tequila & mezcal, ask a couple locals. Our hosts were amazing & had a great passion for the spirits we were tasting, they really knew their stuff. Highly recommend this experience for anyone who wants more from their tequila than a margarita.
