  • I visited the El Rey Mezcal Factory as part of a full day tour from Oaxaca, which also went to the rug-weaving village of Teotitlan del Valle, Arbol del Tule, Mitla and Hierve el Agua. El Rey was our second stop along the tour. This mezcal factory was located just outside of Teotitlan del Valle off the main highway from Oaxaca City. Our group was led by a guide from the factory who explained the process of how the mezcal was harvested and produced while showing us around the small factory. It was interesting to learn about the steps involved in this process. At the end of the tour, we had the opportunity to taste the various types, ages and flavours of mezcal produced at the factory. I tried a sip of a milder flavoured one and wasn't a huge fan of the taste. I enjoyed sitting in the shade and watching others in my group sample the flavours. This was an interesting place to visit as part of the tour I was on, however, I wouldn't have gone out of my way to visit a mezcal factory had I not been on the tour (I don't drink alcohol typically, so it's just not my thing). Visited in November 2017.
