What you'll do

This event brings together the best of Mexico: great food & small-batch mezcal. Upon arrival, we will whisk you up to a roof terrace near the famous Paseo de la Reforma. From the roof you'll take in beautiful views of downtown Mexico City, and the smell of bougainvillea, as you sit down to a catered appetizer and a greeting. Then, our expert mezcalier will introduce you to the history and tradition of mezcal in Mexico, followed by the tasting of the first exclusive mezcal. We'll walk you through how to best savor and understand the unique taste of our small-batch mezcales, which are not widely available -- and certainly won't be found in a typical Mexico City store or bar. (As an accompaniment to the food, and in compliance with local law, we offer the tasting at no charge.) We'll then move on to the second and third appetizers, accompanied by their own mezcal. As we taste, we'll compare and contrast each course and mezcal, and learn about the peculiarities of each. Finally, we'll end with an open conversation and a Q&A session, and just enjoy the view from the terrace. By the time you leave, you will be on your way to developing your own expertise!

Luz

Hi! We're Luz & Enrique! We are expert mezcaliers (like sommeliers, but with mezcal) with years of experience! We visit small communities in Oaxaca & Michoacán that make some of Mexico's best mezcales to better understand their traditions. We taste small-batch mezcales not widely available, bring them to Mexico City, and work with a caterer to provide perfect food pairings for you to enjoy! This expertise is certified by the Asociación Pro–Cultura del Mezcal A.C., an official partner of the state of Oaxaca. (Enrique's profile is at: https://es.airbnb.com/users/show/7487898.)

What's included

Food

Drinks
Small-batch mezcales from small communities in Oaxaca and Michoacán that are not widely available.

Where you'll be

The mezcal tasting will take place in a lovely roof terrace for tastings in the heart of Mexico City. Situated on the seventh floor, it offers beautiful views of downtown, the scent of bougainvillea and other plants, and during longer summer days when the air is clear, views of the two volcanoes, Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl.
