In Situ

 

 

In Situ!  A special little Mezcaleria situated on one of the main streets in Oaxaca, Morelos No. 511 Centro, is owned and operated by especially gifted historians and connoisseurs of Mezcal.

It's all about tradition and information here !  It's all about the Mezcal so don't ask for Gustavo salt and orange slices to spice up the Mezcal because you'll get none here. They want nothing, literally nothing, to get in the way  of visitors enjoying the flavor of the Mezcal.

Pictured is David and Ulisis.  Ulisis is the owner and David has a good handle on the English language  so the two together are a joy to speak with .  Ulises has wrote articles and books  (One of which I purchased on my visit with them) on the production and culture surrounding Mezcale which are must reads for those like myself who are beginning to enjoy the agave nectar.

Mezcalistas has a really good article on it's 'The World of Mezcal' titled 'Mezcal boot camp' with Ulises Torrentera and Wahaka's Raza Zaidi discussing the finer points on Mezcal.

 

 

Some In Situ Mezcal Inventory


Caution: It's said 'for everything there is Mezcal' but we add 'except for one thing' - getting drunk. Please drink responsibly. The most accurate and dependable book on living life at its fullest says 'wine (or Mezcal) makes the heart rejoice' and 'makes life enjoyable' (Ps 104:15; Ec 10:19) but overindulgence can certainly lead to harm (Pr 23:29-31)! If you drink at all please drink in moderation! (Quotes from NWT)
