Travel Channel’s Jack Maxwell continues his search for the world’s most interesting beverages and the people who drink them with all-new, fun escapades in the third season of “Booze Traveler,” premiering on Monday, December 12 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. He’ll sail Hobart Harbor in Australia for a taste of the world’s best single malt whiskey, catch spiders in Cambodia to make tarantula wine and drink apple pie moonshine at the Mamou Mardi Gras in Louisiana.
“I’ve had such rich experiences in stunningly beautiful places, and tasted unique drinks I never thought would pass my lips,” says Maxwell. “This has been my favorite season so far, having met so many wonderful people I now call friends.”
Maxwell begins the new season’s journey south of the United States border in Guadalajara, Mexico, celebrating Foundation Day, one of the city’s biggest party days of the year. After making music with a mariachi band and drinking raicilla, an agave-based spirit, he finds himself in Oaxaca for an exclusive taste of an award-winning mezcal. Maxwell offers the same spirit to Mexico’s thirstiest folk saint in exchange for safe travel to Tepoztlán, where he participates in an ancient Aztec ceremony for a taste of pulque, a drink older than tequila. Later on, he works the blue agave fields for a shot of tequila. Maxwell makes his last stop in Mexico’s capital city, where he drinks a one-of-a-kind cocktail and plays a shocking drinking game.
