Mezcal Route: For a day, you will learn about the ritual behind mezcal, where the planting and harvesting of mezcal becomes a cult.
You will visit Matatlán, a place where farmers bring offerings to the cross and offer their agaves. Within the fields, you will learn about some of the varieties of agave used in the production of this drink, and then enter the elaboration and decoration of the traditional mezcal cantaritos.
Among agave landscapes, the mezcal tour will take you through communities of small local producers that allow you to meet the people who produce mezcal in a very authentic way. You will continue to Chichicapam, where a local family will welcome you at their table for a traditional meal. Finally, in Ocotlán you will visit a cantina where they make cured mezcal; one of the last places where the tradition of putting fruit in the mezcal bottles for tasting is still preserved. Enjoy the Mezcal Route!
