Mezcal Immersion: Miahuatlan Description:
Our host will talk to us extensively about the process, the industry, and the culture surrounding mezcal. Depending on the spirit and the mobility of the group, we are able to venture into the fields where the agaves grow, to see the various plant varieties. (Please bring hats and sunscreen, as well as comfortable shoes for walking in the fields if you opt to do so.)
We will sit down again for a traditional Mexican lunch, prepared by the matriarch of the household so that our stomachs are full and ready for a tasting. Then we will taste the different mezcals that they have on hand, so that you can begin to distinguish the breadth of flavors that come from different wild agave varieties. You will have the opportunity to purchase mezcal from the family if you’d like.
We will then head back to Oaxaca, returning approximately at 6:30 p.m.
