  • WHY: Many of today’s most intriguing and exciting new agave spirits are uncertified, meaning they don’t adhere to the laws and practices that are required to use the terms tequila, mezcal, and raicilla. Sometimes these spirits are made from uncertified species of agave. Other times, the distiller is outside the geographical zone required to use the designation. Located in Chancuellar, Jalisco, Lorenzo and Tomas Virgen are making one of the most rustic and flavorful agave spirits you can find anywhere today.
  • HOW: In what amounts to uncertified raicilla—using Yellow Ixtero, Green Ixtero, Brocha, and other local agave species—the piñas are cooked in an earth and stone oven for 3-4 days roasted with mesquite. Afterward, the piñas are chopped by hand with an axe then fermented for more than two weeks in plastic vats. Distillation is done by Filipino still with a copper saucepan inserted.
  • WHAT: Mezonte is a revered bottler of Mexican spirits, dedicated to preserving the country’s many distillation traditions and keeping its rural distillers in business. From its plot in Chancuellar, the view from the Virgen palenque is spectacular: on one side you have the Fuego Volcano and the Nevado de Colima; on the other, the biosphere of the Sierra de Manantlán. The family distills with three generations at this point to continue and preserve the traditions.
