Mezcal + Art + Sunset Hike
Here at Coyote Aventuras, we pride ourselves on providing experiences that promote an active and healthy lifestyle.
Our mezcal experience focuses on teaching you about the complexities behind the cultivation, fermentation and distillation of the agave plant. We give you the opportunity to spend quality time and inquire about any questions you may have with an authentic third-generation “maestro mezcalero.”
We strive to promote a culture of respect for this sacred drink, breaking with paradigms established in the alcohol industry that solely focus on excessive consumption. If you are looking to drink until you black out, look elsewhere!
Our tour combines an educational experience with a mezcal producing family, a trip out to Teotitlán del Valle for some delicious local food and a sunset hike that you will never forget!
The process of distilling an exquisite mezcal is one that illuminates the deep ancestral knowledge in Oaxaca. The years of cultivating the agave plant, laborious work under the sun and ultimate distillation of this fine spirit demonstrate a strong commitment to excellence.
For generations, this artisanal practice has been passed down through “maestros mezcaleros” who possess the secrets to bringing out the tremendous flavor of the agave plant.
On our “Mezcal, Art and Sunset Hike” experience, you will have the unique opportunity to stroll around an agave field with a distinguished “maestro mezcalero” while you immerse yourself in the history and traditions surrounding this amazing plant.
After a stroll with Jerónimo and his family, you will learn about the artisanal production process that is fundamental to the taste of mezcal.
At Coyote, we believe that once people observe the hard work and time needed to create a mezcal they will truly understand the importance of sipping this ancestral drink responsibly. Each sip is a testament to the arduous work of these Oaxacan families and we encourage our guests to appreciate every last drop.
