If we can all agree on something, is that mezcal is fashionable, and very much so. This spirit is one of the most traditional in Mexico, and although it has been around for hundreds of years, it has become popular on a large scale in the last couple of decades. Today, we can find numerous "mezcalerias" – or bars that specialize in mezcal - throughout Mexico and also in many important destinations in the world.
Morelia is a Mexican city that’s at the forefront of Mexican culture and trends, including its large tourist, cultural and gastronomic offer. For this reason, Morelia has hosted a “Mezcalmania” faire for some years. This is a festival that gives honor to Mexican traditions by presenting more than 30 Mezcal brands from Michoacan mezcal producers. Here you can taste the finest mezcals and purchase bottles to take home.
But not everything at the fair is mezcal, you’ll also find other traditional Michoacan drinks such as tequila, charanda, pulque and craft beers. Of course, no Mexican festival is complete without good food and great entertainment. The "Mezcalmania" agenda also includes dances, concerts, competitions and booths that offer traditional food from the state of Michoacan.
