Mezcal plays a big role in the culture of Oaxaca. It’s more than just something to drink; it’s almost a family member and a part of heritage.

As with fine wine, quality tequila is a drink to be savored like cognac or brandy.  A quality tequila does not need lime and salt, which dull the flavor, but benefits instead from cinnamon and orange, which enhance it. Tequila tasting combines various small but important details to make the flavor pop in your palate.
