I am a “Mezcalier" (mezcal expert) who loves sharing the culture of mezcal-making and its diverse types of agave. Five years of journeys in mezcal producing communities from all over Mexico have shaped a passion for this artisanal spirit.

This is a rare opportunity to get some insight into the mezcal making community. Oscar has direct access to some delicious mezcal that isn’t available commercially and tells you an inspiring story about how it is created by a passionate group of women in the regions. A must-do in Bacalar!

Una gran forma de terminar el día en Bacalar. Fue una linda noche. Lo mejor es que pudimos hacer nuevos amigos mientras degustábamos los diferentes tipos de mezcal. Tuvimos la suerte de disfrutar música en vivo.

As mezcal lovers, we did not know what to expect going into this experience. We met Oscar in his beautiful space w/live music and instantly hit it off. His knowledge of mezcal and the deep roots of it is refreshing. He is passionate about the culture and has many many great stories to share. We enjoyed our time w/him (and all the mezcal), we ended up staying out to the wee hours. We are so glad we signed up for this as we learned so much more about mezcal culture, and have made a great friend.

Mein Mann und ich sind große Mezcal Fans und ein authentisches Mezcal Tasting stand ganz oben auf unserer Bucket List für unseren Mexiko Urlaub. Wir hätten nicht gedacht, dass wir so etwas außergewöhnliches in dem kleinen Dorf Bacalar finden würden. Oskar hat uns stundenlang über die Geschichte, Herstellung und Bedeutung den Mezcals erzählt. Jede Sorte war etwas Besonderes. Das Tasting ist nicht ganz günstig aber es ist sein Geld wert. Was uns besonders gefallen hat, ist die Tatsache dass man danach hätte eine kleine Flasche Mezcal kaufen können ohne sich gezwungen zu fühlen etwas zu kaufen. Die Sorten die verkostet werden sind rar und nicht sehr kommerzialisiert. Am Ende haben wir noch so viele Tips für unseren restlichen Aufenthalt in Bacalar bekommen, das war einfach klasse. Oskar spricht fließend Englisch, was sehr vorteilhaft aber nicht selbstverständlich hier in Mexiko ist.
