    I’m a solo traveler from New York City with a pretty adventurous palate, but I must admit, I was a bit hesitant about the whole Mezcal and mole pairing tour. Not being a fan of mole, I wondered if this would be the right experience for me. Let me tell you, I couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised, and much of that credit goes to Alice, our extraordinary sommelier.

    She took us on an immersive journey through its history, distillation process, and the stories that make each bottle unique. By the end of the tasting, I felt like I had earned an unofficial mini-degree in Mezcal!

    Everything from the intimate setting, quality of Mezcals, and the food was top-notch. The experience was seamless, unhurried, and felt personalized, even within a group setting.

    I highly recommend this Mezcal tasting and mole pairing tour. Alice, you’ve made my Oaxacan journey unforgettable, and I can’t thank you enough!
