  • Identity verified
I am a member of the fifth generation of AGAVE and MEZCAL artisan producers with more tradition in the state of Oaxaca since 1822; 40 years of experience in the knowledge of agave cultivation and artisanal mezcal production.

Together with my family we founded LA MEZCALOTECA in 1998, a tasting room where you will discover the aromas and flavors of the authentic artisanal and ancestral MEZCAL whose main objective is to support the small indigenous communities that produce MEZCAL.

If you are curious about mezcal, occasionally dabble in mezcal, think you know about mezcal, or simply drink a lot of mezcal you should do this tasting. Victor Manuel walks you through the significant differences in taste, processing, and cultural relevancy to artisanal farmers (vs commercial) who still make the higher quality, natural mezcal. Worth the 90mins.

Absolutely fantastic experience, Victor Manuel was a knowledgeable and passionate about Mezcal and Oaxaca. We learned so much and now desperately want to visit Oaxaca. Victor Manuel only serves artisan and ancestral Mezcal's from the indigenous people of Oaxaca. These are very rare and some of the bottles are one of less than ten in the world. Of course, they are all delicious. Also, what a deal. I can't imagine trying 4 different Mezcals of this quality for only $25 anywhere else in the city. Pair that with an warm, enthusiastic, and knowledge host and it is really a steal.

I had an AMAZING, intimate experience with Victor. Granted it was only me but it turned out to be such an educational experience in learning about the process of mezcal making, the differences between different mezcals, and most importantly the flavors. The tasting was done in Victor's mezcaleria at the restaurant next door. Communication was clear and had a wonderful time overall. I was able to drop my newly found mezcal knowledge later on in my trip to other fellow travelers. Well worth the price. Highly recommend!

This was a wonderful way to experience mezcal in Mexico City. Victor was a friendly, knowledgeable host, sharing his decades of experience as a supporter as well as a supporter of other producers in Oaxaca. He thoroughly explained the process, answering any questions I had. And I sampled a range of delicious mezcals that I know I would never find anywhere else. I also brought home a delicious, small batch bottle that I’m looking forward to enjoying with friends. Highly recommend!
