See How Pulque is Made

Starting in Hacienda Soltepec, tours of Casa de Don Vale are led, where a very special pulque is made. It is one of the very few that have what is called the “semilla,” or seed. This is the purest aguamiel juice that ferments into pulque spontaneously outdoors in the shade. Ask to see how to make the alacrán test with the last sip left in the glass. If the shape of a scorpion doesn’t come out, it isn’t a good pulque.
