Oaxaca Mezcal Brands and Which Ones are Worth Buying

Los Amantes won two bronze awards in last year’s World Spirits contents, and they are popular in both Mexico and the U.S. Alipus is another recommendable brand found in the States and Mexico, made in Santiago de Matatlan by the Los Danzantes restaurant group, who own two great Oaxacan restaurants, one in Mexico City’s Coyoacan neighborhood, and another in Oaxaca City. If you are in Mexico City or Oaxaca City we recommend you stop by Mis Mezcales, a specialty mezcal shop whose owner is an endless source of information and whose shelves are stocked with small-batch, traditional producers that we guarantee are worth your time to try. If you’re in Mexico City, the birthplace of hip mezcal mixology, try the Limantour bar, which has won awards for its mezcal cocktails or Fifty Mils bar in the Mexico City Four Seasons, voted one of the world’s 50 best bars in 2018.

Two Luxury Oaxaca Boutique Hotels in the Historic Center to Consider

When figuring out where to stay in Oaxaca City, you need to decide what kind of hotel you want and where you really want to be. If you’re not in a car and want to be right in the action of the historic center, we’ve got two fresh reviews of luxury Oaxaca boutique hotels to consider. See our new review of Hotel Sin Nombre in the historic district of Oaxaca. See our detailed review and more photos of Casa Cid de Leon Boutique Hotel in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Bric's Bellagio Luggage Review: Luxury Rolling Suitcases

This rolling Bric’s Bellagio suitcase is a four-wheel spinner, gliding smoothly along carpet and hard floors with its Italian workmanship and Japanese wheels. If the Bellagio suitcase price is a bit out or reach, check out the similar Amalfi line, which comes in significantly lower when sales are going on. The most contemporary of all is at the lowest price point, the Ulisse B/Y Collection, which comes in six colors and looks like this: Bric’s also produces some options that are not hard clamshell designs if you like one large compartment, two wheels instead of four, or even no wheels at all for your overnight bag. No matter which Bric’s suitcase or collection you choose though, you get a limited 5-year warranty on wheeled luggage (a 2-year one for other bags) and good Italian design.

Drinking IZO Sotol From Durango, Mexico

It differs from the agave plants used to make tequila and mezcal in the sense that there’s no actual fruit that’s harvested and roasted. A sotol desert spoon plant takes more than 15 years to mature, which is about a third longer than the already-long maturation for the agave plants used in tequila and mezcal. If you’re someone who likes to sip silver (blanco) tequila or unaged mezcal, you’ll probably warm right up to it, but if not, you may prefer to use it in cocktails instead. See more at the company website and look for this brand if you happen to be in Durango, San Diego, or where there’s a good selection of spirits beyond the norm from Mexico.

Our home base HQ of Guanajuato, Mexico is usually bustling with visitors and this plaza is usually alive with food vendors and flower sellers. The smart people are sheltered at home now though and only those who want to play virus Russian Roulette are still clumping together in groups. . . . #guanajuato_mx #guanajuatocity #guanajuatocapital #baratillo #plazadelbaratillo #fountain #colorsofmexico #colorcolourlovers #luxurylatinamerica #mexicanplaza #colonialmexico #unescoworldheritage #guanajuatohistorico #quedateencasa #staythefhome #flatteningthecurve

It wouldn't be so bad to be #shelteredathome if you were by a lake in Patagonia. This is a room at the @hotelcorrentoso in Villa La Angostura, south of Bariloche in Argentina. It's a lovely 47-room lodge with fantastic views of water and surrounding mountains. It's also a good base during ski season or paradise for fishing. Go to our home page in the profile or the luxury Argentina Hotels section of our site to check it out for #futuretravel when we can explore the world again.

I stayed at @villamariacristina the first time I visited Guanajuato, then have walked by it hundreds of times since moving here. I have never seen the doors closed. Now they are though, until better times return. 😖 . . . #villamariacristina #guanajuato_mx #guanajuatocity. @relaischateaux #luxuryhotels #luxurymexico #flattenthecurve #flatteningthecurve #stayathome #notourists #closedhotel

Yeah we know, it's hard to think about travel when we're all on lockdown and need to #staytheFhome for now. But when this passes and you're ready to take that long-dreamed cruise to Antarctica, you'll most likely spend a night or two in #ushuaia in Argentina. Follow the link in our profile to see our newly posted review of @loscauquenes resort. Most of the 57 rooms have a stunning view of the Beagle Channel.

If we are going to be stuck somewhere and can't travel for weeks or months, I think we picked a nice place: Guanajuato, Mexico. Where are you holed up in this time of isolation? . . . #guanajuato #guanajuato_mx #guanajuatocapital #guanajuatocity @villamariacristina #thisismexico #igguanajuato #descubreguanajuato #visitguanajuato #jacarandas #colorsofmexico #luxurylatinamerica #mexicolindo

Yeah we know, you're in self-isolation now and can't travel anywhere. We're still putting up our hotel reviews that are in the queue though so you can plan for a brighter future when we are free again. This is @haciendajurica on the edge of #queretaro in Mexico. A former hacienda that dates back a few hundred years, it is now a lovely hotel run by the Brisas Group and a part of @preferredhotels.

Is all this bad news making you want to hole up somewhere and drink? We suggest doing it with the good stuff. This is, in our opinion, the best rum you can buy. Ron Zacapa 23-year rum (@ronzacapaca) is from #Guatemala, but we had this glass on the club floor of @liveaquacancun adult all-inclusive resort in Mexico. It's a good one to have at home if you're going to self-quarantine for a while. . . . #ronzacapa #ronzacapa23 #rum #bestrumintheworld #guatemalanrum #rumlover #aqualover #lacolleccion #lacolleccionresorts #luxurylatinamerica #allinclusive #luxuryresort #beachresort

Some will look at this image and be perplexed. In others it will trigger a memory and they will start salivating. This shot is from an upcoming piece by @travelgal_dispatches on learning Spanish while exploring the city and state of #oaxacamexico. That means this pile of strangeness is the raw fruit that will be roasted to make #mezcal. By the time you read this, you'll probably be able to click through and see it on our home page. . . . #mezcalartesanal #mezcalmonday #oaxaca #oaxacatravel #distillerytour #oaxacabonito #visitoaxaca #mexicanmezcal #thisismexico #mexicanspirits #maguey #luxurylatinamerica #mezcaleria #mexicotour #oaxacatour

The animals are so thick in the Galapagos Islands that sometimes they have to walk over each other! Book a tour with our partner @andando_tours (based in Ecuador for decades) and they'll make sure you hit the right spots to come back with a thousand wildlife photos!

Wish you were here? Trade your heavy coat for short sleeves at the place where we just updated our review with new photos: @liveaquacancun. This is the view from Azur restaurant, where what's on your plate is going to look just as pretty as this nice sea view. And order whatever you want: this adults-only resort is all-inclusive.
