I am a member of the fifth generation of AGAVE and MEZCAL artisan producers with more tradition in the state of Oaxaca since 1822; 40 years of experience in the knowledge of agave cultivation and artisanal mezcal production.

Together with my family we founded LA MEZCALOTECA in 1998, a tasting room where you will discover the aromas and flavors of the authentic artisanal and ancestral MEZCAL.

Our main objective is to support the small indigenous communities that produce MEZCAL.

Note: In an imponderable case; the experience will be exposed by another member of our family with the same ability and passion to make you enjoy and live mezcal.

I don't live from mezcal. I live for mezcal.

The presentation was very imformative and it was really great to try all sorts of small batch, artisanal mezcals. After the tasting, I felt that I really understood so much more about the world of mezcal and all the different processing methods.

Victor was great! Very personable and answered all of my questions—and I had a lot of them :) I left feeling like I’d tasted really special mezcal and actually learned something which is what I wanted. Would totally recommend!

Very friendly and knowledgeable! Nicely decorated tasting space and very well planned out presentation. Great tasting tips and delicious mezcal that you can’t find in stores.

I absolutely loved this mezcal tasting. I walked into this tasting not really knowing much about the history or process of Mezcal. I feel like I walked away with a ton of meaningful knowledge about Mezcal. Our host's love of mezcal really came through in the tasting. At the end of the tasting, I was able to purchase some Mezcal from Victor. Highly recommend this experience!

Victor was great - personable and informative! I will not be drinking mezcal the same way again after learning so much the spirit - from learning about the legs on a good mezcal or the aroma trick. Bought a couple of bottles of his family’s mezcal to take back home.
