Mezcal is a distillate made from the agave plant growing in Oaxaca. It is just one of the incredible crafts that Oaxaca is known for. Whether you are new to mezcal or a seasoned connoisseur, Rambling Spirits can design a unique experience that will give you a fresh taste for this amazing spirit. The region is stunning, with sprawling agave fields and ancient sites. We always offer the option to explore this beautiful landscape.
