We are pleased to be able to offer you the latest version of our mezcal talk and tasting with one of Oaxaca’s most fascinating mezcaleras, Sosima, using our new Covid Protocol. Please make sure to go over our protocol and to only reserve an experience if you´re in complete agreement with the terms.

This experience is a socio-anthropological marvel. Along with giving you a taste of some of Oaxaca’s best ancestral mezcal, Sosima also delves into her own experiences in the industry, exploring how women are contextualized in the distilling world.

Whether you´re a connoisseur or a novice in the mezcal scene, this experience will deepen your understanding of this glorious plant and the culture that has sprung forth through its distillation. Join us for this sensory delight, and take advantage of this opportunity to purchase mezcal directly from a master distiller.

This experience will take place in Sosima and her collective’s new bodega, about 40 minutes from the city center. It’s conveniently close to the city while also giving you a glimpse of rural Oaxaca.

 

What to Expect

Step One: Read our Covid Protocol. If you agree with these terms and practices, write to us and request this experience, telling us how many people are in your small group and what your dates of availability are.  Let us know where we’re staying so that we can arrange to pick you up on the agreed-upon date.

Step Two: Once we’ve found a date that works for our host and for your group, we will send you a Paypal request for a deposit for your experience. This deposit is non-refundable. In case of an emergency with our hosts, we will do our best to reschedule with you at a mutually-convenient time. If that is not possible, we will refund your deposit.

Step Three: We will pick you up at the pre-arranged time and place and bring you to Sosima’s bodega to enjoy your experience. You are welcome to purchase mezcal to take home. It can be bottled and sealed for travel or for local consumption.

Logistics and Cost

Time Involvement (Including Transportation) – Approximately 3 hours

Transportation – Provided from Tlayudona to the Bodega

Costs and Minimums –

1,050 MXN per person

900 MXN per person if you are signing up two people.

800 MXN if you are signing up 3 or more people.

Wondering why our costs have changed recently? We have gone through an elaborate process of taking the utmost precaution to protect ourselves and our community during these trying times. Part of this effort was an investment into sanitization products, application equipment and other health-related measures. The largest factor behind our new costs is the reduction of our vehicular capacity for your safety and for the safety of our drivers and translators. This requires additional vehicles, drivers, gas, and maintenance. Your health is important to us though, as is the sustainability of our project. Part of sustainability requires us to implement self-care so that we can continue offering experiences, in addition to taking any and every measure possible to reduce risk for our guests.

There is a minimum of 2 people for this experience. If you are a single person who would like to sign up for this experience, you can cover the minimum cost of 2 people or write to us to see when we have this experience on the calendar with that minimum requirement already met.
