What you'll do

We will take a historical tour through the origins of mezcal and its distillation processes in Mexico, the original uses given to the plant by prehistoric communities, and its foreground during the times of the Spanish colony with its historical prohibitions.

We will revisit the genealogy of Asian distillers and their influence in our current mezcal culture, delving deep into the production processes of artisanal and ancestral mezcals, along with their classifications according to the Official Mexican Norm and denominations of origin.

We will learn about the different cups and glasses used to drink mezcal, and the main characteristics to take into account when tasting. We will explore the most adequate techniques to better understand flavor, smell and some mezcal flaws.

While you are at home, I will be in my studio in downtown Oaxaca, and apart from the aforementioned experience, I will be able to show you my unique pre-hispanic distillers. When you joining my experience, make sure your audio and video are on, so that you can ask questions at any time.

Antonio is such a personable master of mezcal! With travel restrictions due to the pandemic, this experience was so special to not only do something fun for date night, but meet a new friend! He is so knowledgeable but explains things in an easy to understand way. I can’t wait to try more tequilas and use his method of tasting!

Don´t miss IT!!!. I have done many Mezcal tastings and this is by far the best ever!. Antonio is a warmth person, always kin to explain things, attentive to details, and most generous with his great knowledge on Mezcal. But more !, he is fun and you don´t want the experience to end. I had a great time and absolutely recommend this experience, same if you are a getting to know Mezcal or if you are an expert....At the end you will feel you have a new friend!

English speakers here, and also home brewers. Antonio was great: provided an interesting history, and able to answer more sophisticated questions. Highly recommended.

My husband and I have traveled to Mexico multiple times and always participate in tequila and mezcal classes/activities at the resorts where we stay, so I wasn't sure if I'd learn much I didn't already know, but I definitely a LOT! The pace and content were perfect, and it was an overall excellent experience. There were some technical issues on my end at first, but Antonio quickly adapted and didn't skip a beat. This is a very well structured, professional experience, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to learn about mezcal.
