I’m in the Maguey Melate in house mezcal expert and I’ve been giving professional mezcal tours for 6 years

In 2012, I left my career in architecture and began giving educational mezcal tours full-time. Building relationships with mezcaleros and sampling the world’s best destilado de agave is my professional and personal passion, along with visiting Oaxacan markets, perfecting my grasshopper sauce recipe, cooking, and generally educating people on mezcal. My role in Maguey Melate is to bring the most authentic mezcaleros into our club, make sure each bottle of agave spirits is best in class, and advise on how to make each customer’s educational experience as complete and accurate as possible!
