This was one of our favorite experiences in Oaxaca! Reservations are required, so make them in advance. The women are very thorough and committed to explaining the traditional methods of sourcing and producing mezcal - you learn what to look for in terms of appearance,...More

This place is a high-end Mezcal tasting room that only takes reservations and charges about 200 pesos, ~$10 USD, for an hour of tasting different varieties of Mezcal. It has the feel of an intimate speakeasy with dark wooden bar and library style lamps. The...More
