We will visit an artisanal mezcal factory to observe and know the whole process of elaboration, step by step.
We will also share with you the different types of agave that exist, how they reproduce and the care they need. We will talk about the different categories and classes of mezcal.
You can try a wide variety of different mezcal and learn to taste them. (The tasting is unlimited).
Then we will move to our majestic agave field with thousands of plants, where you can tour and admire this beautiful place; And of course take amazing pictures! We will do a couple of activities to show all the time and work behind this spirit drink.
Finally, we will visit an authentic traditional Oaxacan restaurant, where you can enjoy a special dish with typical food of the region. There we will make a final tasting to share all the secrets of the liquid culture of Mexico.
