Learning From Experts at Mexico City's Mezcal and Tequila Museum

Comments Off on Learning From Experts at Mexico City's Mezcal and Tequila Museum

When traveling in Mexico, sooner or later you will try tequila and mezcal. You might not know the difference, how it’s made or why there are thousands of different kinds. One of the best ways to understand it all is to head to the museum in Mexico City and learn from the experts.

Mexico City is a gaping never ending metropolis, a city built on a lake. Luckily, the Tequila Museum is fairly central and is conveniently situated in Garibaldi Square.  The museum has three floors so it makes sense for me to split this short review into floors.

The first floor features two rooms; the first room has videos showing the production process from harvesting agave plants until it reaches your mouth.

There is a massive map of Mexico showing where the agave plants all are located.

The important thing to note here is that the drink can only be called tequila if it comes from the tequila region of Mexico…in the same way that champagne is from the Champagne region of France.

There is a full cabinet in the same room displaying hundreds of full bottles of tequila in many styles and varieties!

The top floor is where the terrace bar and restaurant is and it is here where you use your voucher to get a free sample.

My samples - one tequila and one mezcal

With no one on the roof, we drank alone and enjoyed both tequila and mezcal samples. There’s a great view from the top floor over Mexico City, but then again not as good as the viewpoint from some bars, restaurants and the Torre Latinoamericana of course.
