In El Distilado bar mural food & drinkappreciation for all things made from Agave including the many drink possibilities Mezcal affords. Drink Mezcal traditional or flavor it up some in a true Oaxacan manner according to various traditions and recipes developed around the nectar.

Everyone there is very friendly and accommodating and many are bilingual. When time permits I would like to give their food menu a good look and discuss those options more in detail. Had a 5 Sentidos  'say hello' sip of Tobala Mezcal and we became good friends. I feel you'll hear more about them as you explore the Mezcal trail in Oaxaca.

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)
