Enjoy a tasting of Pulques assisted by an expert in agave drinks. Discover one of the most emblematic Pulquerias of Guadalajara at the same time you learn and taste the ancestral Mexican alcoholic beverage par excellence. Before the arrival of the Spanish conquerors, the drink most consumed by the natives was aguamiel and pulque. The prehispanic tribes did not know beer or wine. It was until after 1520 during the conquest that foreign spirits and drinks were introduced. Get to know the Pulque's historical journey to our days in a cultural, social and friendly environment. Nowadays Pulque is recognized as a salutary drink with healing properties since it contains fiber, vitamins, antioxidants, and probiotics that improve digestion and intestinal flora. Take advantage of this experience to have fun with the locals of Guadalajara in a bohemian and youthful atmosphere.
I have a degree in Sociology from the University of Guadalajara. A passionate reader of Mexican history, literature, and poetry. I have specialized in cultural studies and agave drinks with regional producers and experts for more than 3 years. As a local host, I love transmitting the culture and history of my country to someone who shows genuine interest. The Pulques, Tequilas, and Mezcales of Jalisco are a pre-Hispanic ancestral tradition of western Mexico that is worth knowing.
