Discover History and Mezcal in Mazatlan

Mazatlan is much more than sun, sand, and sea. The lands of the municipality of Mazatlan and the south of Sinaloa have a rich history: the production of mezcal, the Revolution, and other events.

The first Vinata, as the haciendas where mezcal was produced are known, was founded before 1850. The industry expanded until it reached more than 30,000 hectares of agave plantations. The mezcal produced in these Vinatas received awards at different European fairs during the first decades of the last century, and Mazatlan became the second-most important producer in Mexico.

The Osuna family settled in the village of La Noria, one of the most picturesque in the region. The Vinata Los Osuna is the only one that survives today
