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.

Our main objective is to support the small indigenous communities that produce MEZCAL.

Note: In an imponderable case; the experience will be exposed by another member of our family with the same ability and passion to make you enjoy and live mezcal.

I don't live from mezcal. I live for mezcal.

Great experience with Victor! Tasted a wide variety of artisanal mezcal and Victor taught us everything about the process of making it, the history, the culture and very importantly, HOW to drink Mezcal properly.

While Mezcal tours are a dime a dozen in Mexico, Victor has found a way to make this experience one in a million. This isnt any old run of the mill Mezcall experience. Victor and his family are the real deal and his experience feels like your passing the time with a friend who just happens to know all kinds of useful things about Mezcal and is in possession of the rarest most artisanal types you will ever experience. It's like you are drinking in knowledge and friendship. I would definitely do this again.
