Mezcal Tours Oaxaca: A Day in the Life

Mezcal Tours Oaxaca: A Day in the Life

star-5
49
The only way to truly learn about mezcal production, is to participate in all or as many states of production as practicable, alongside the palenqueros (distillers) and their family members. In this way one best begins to appreciate the hard work which goes into making a bottle of mezcal. Of course in the day we have breaks, and lunch (optional and extra) at a local rural eatery serving traditional Oaxacan fare, and there will be opportunities to sample upwards of 30 mezcals, which can be purchased at a fraction of retail, from some of the same producers which sell to bars, restaurants and mezcalerias in Oaxaca and elsewhere throughout Mexico. Cut agave in the field, fill the oven, empty the oven, prepare the sweet baked agave for crushing, crush by hand or with the horse and tahona, fill and empty the fermentation vats, then distill. You do it all (as much as we can reasonably arrange), working alongside indigenous Zapotec producers, and their families.
