No reviews

4 items left

This Raicilla is produced by Maestro Tabernero Don Arturo Campos in the village of San Juan Espanatica, Tuxpan (Jalisco) at approximately 1,400 metres above sea level. The agave used is both Cenizo and a type of Angustifolia known locally as Lineño, which is harvested after seven years. The agave is roasted in an earthen oven and it is then distilled twice in a philippino style still made from clay pots.

Tasting Note:  Smoky, cooked agave, cracked stone, campfires, peppery spice, sweet leather and a mineral, earthy, rich soil aroma on the nose.  A soft, sweet palate with candied fruits, floral touches, a hint of burnt rubber and pebble-like minerality.  A sweet, creamy finish, with apple skin hints.

About the distillery

Produced for over 500 years in the Mexican state of Jalisco, Raicilla is a Mezcal that adopted a new name in the 1780’s to avoid a tax levied by the Spanish Crown. Jalisco offers a plethora of agave species, second only to Oaxaca. These, along with great diversity in terroir, equipment and techniques, give Raicilla an amazing spectrum of flavour and history.

La Venenosa Raicilla range was created by Chef Esteban Morales to bring these hidden jewels to the global market. Esteban traversed the state in search of the best producers in each region. Every one of these Raicilla expressions is unique; created by different Maestro Taberneros in distinct regions, from different species of agave using diverse techniques, the individual results are astounding.
