Meet your host Sam: a 20-year veteran of the food & beverage industry, expert crafter of cocktails, and connoisseur of Mexico's agave-based spirits—from mezcal to...gin! That's right, he represented the first company to produce a gin from agave using 32 botanicals from every state in the country. Although Sam was born in Mexico City, he lived in New York for two decades before moving to Tulum. Now, in addition to leading tastings and teaching mixology classes, he's a sought-after guest bartender at some of the best bars in the Riviera Maya.

Sam’s co-host, Ben, is a cocktail enthusiast and social alchemist dedicated to creating unique experiences that build connections between people and places.

    Sam was responsive to questions and ensured we got to the correct location. Great atmosphere, the entire set up was nicely done. The education that came along with tasting was delightful. Sam answered all of our questions and gave us tips to find quality Mezcal in the states. We gained so much knowledge and had a great night. Great way to end our time in Tulum.

    Absolutely fantastic experience! The host is very knowledgeable, personable, and a good storyteller. My wife and I enjoyed the Mezcal tasting and cocktail making experience. Highly recommend to anyone looking to enjoy something other than the beach, looking to meet interesting people, or to develop an appreciation for fine Mexican Mezcal.
