In Dine, Los Cabos by Suzanne Koch

Cabo is filled with unique and exclusive experiences, from underwater adventures to exotic culinary dishes. Among some of the most desired experiences is tequila tastings. But what about mezcal tastings? Mezcal, made from the piña of a maguey plant is particularly popular in Mexico but is also gaining popularity in other regions. The Resort at Pedregal offers a fun and tasty mezcal flight and class to introduce the tastes of mezcal to curious guests. More rare than any wine, some of these mezcals have been made from agave plants that have been growing for up to twenty-eight years. The tasting includes five different mezcals, while three of them cannot be found anywhere else in Los Cabos.

The tasting is accompanied by homemade salts and fresh fruits and is $70 per person. Read on for the five mezcals you can expect to taste.
