  • Description


    The team is Rolando, Mary and I (Jasper).

    Mary is from Oaxaca. She is also a spanish teacher and know everything about Oaxaca.
    Rolando is a Mezcal master from Ocatlan
    Jasper is dutch and lives in Oaxaca.

    The project is just outside Ocatlan in our Mezcal Palenque where they produce mezcal in the most traditonal (ansestral) way.
    Currently we are building a extra palenque and for this one we can use some hands, but also an artist for a big mural.

    When you arrive in Oaxaca is posible to stay a night in our hostel in the city and after move to Ocatlan where you willl spend your time. It is an amazing communitie surrounded by mutiple palenques (all from the same family) and a great oppurtonatie to learn about the Oaxaca culture and enjoy the beatiful nature!
