Bienvenidos To Maguey Melate’s Signature Palenque Tour!

UPON YOUR ARRIVAL…

A man is seen through the smoky haze, waving you to enter

Although you know what mezcal is, you’ve never actually stepped foot on a palenque! Mixed with emotions of excitement and nervousness, you cautiously creep towards the smokey ungated structure.

Suddenly you wish you’d paid more attention in Spanish class. Is it “como te llamas?” or “por que te amo?”?

PAUSING THEIR TASK AT HAND…

The mezcaleros seem eager to share their artisanal craft with you

You sense they are honored you traveled all this way to learn about artisanal agave distillates. They share that nothing makes them happier than when you really try to understand the process and ask questions about their traditional methods.

Luckily for you, your amigo speaks Español perfectamente and helps translate the process from start to finish.

It’s time to claim your favorite!

The mezcaleros explain the flavors and aromas of each agave as you discuss with your friends which is your favorite. 

The mezcalero reminds you, there need not be any rhyme or reason for your choice. Just give each distillate a fair, unbiased sample and let your taste buds do the rest. There is no best agave. Whichever one you like the most is the best for you!
