Mescal: Oaxaca, Mexico

Made from a similar agave plant as tequila, mescal (or mezcal) is tequila’s stronger, smokier cousin. Exclusive to the region of Oaxaca, the spirit is made much the same way today as it was when it was originally discovered over 200 years ago. Los Danzantes Mezcal Distillery is one of the region’s premiere artisanal mescal producers who, since opening in 1997, have been employing traditional and authentic mescal making techniques. They offer tours and tastings at their distillery during the week and also own three restaurants in the region, at which you can sample mescal as it pairs with mouth-watering Mexican cuisine.
