Discover pre-hispanic pulque and ancestral mezcal; agave drinks and the sun of the Guachichil desert.

Did you know that pulque and mezcal come from the same plant? In San Luis Potosí we have a grand tradition for the elaboration of these drinks that are a standard representation of our national identity. We will visit the communities that preserve this tradition and we will get to know the rural surroundings in the vicinity of the capital city.

San Luis Potosi We will leave San Luis Potosí at 10:00 am where our first stop will be the magueyeras of Derramaderos, a community near the periphery of the capital city. We will visit David and his mother Eufemia, who will take us to collect mead and demonstrate the elaboration of pulque, a pre-Hispanic drink.

Duration:  60 minutes

Derramaderos It is time to get back into the vehicle to where we will continue along the route of the potosino mezcal and we will enter the mountains where the first Spanish settlement was established in the state, San Miguel de Mexquitic. We will visit a community where Angel, Daniel, Manuel, Maria de la Luz and their families invite us to visit their vinata, or mezcal patio. During the tour, we will get to know the processes for the preparation and elaboration of mezcal using the campanilla, an ANCESTRAL technique that uses clay pots for its distillation, giving the drink an amazing flavor that sets it apart from anything you have ever tried before.

Duration:  1.5 hours

Mexquitic de Carmona We will learn how to taste mezcal properly with a technique that will build up the experience with our senses. Forget about whatever you learned during those wild nights of spring break, this spirit needs to be appreciate in a special way.
