Produced for over 400 years in the coast and mountains of Jalisco, Raicilla is an Agave Spirit that in the 1780’s in order to avoid a tax levied by the Spanish Crown it became an illegal moonshine mainly dealt in the back streets of Puerto Vallarta. The potent brother of tequila yields drunken stories by tourists from all over the world. Jalisco offers a plethora of agave species, second only to Oaxaca. These, along with great diversity in terroir, equipment, and techniques, gives Raicilla an amazing spectrum of flavor and history.
PUNTAGAVE Raicilla strong acidity and distilled at a high 88 proof provides a big-bang profile that can be enjoyed straight-up “ay caramba” or it can also be used to create amazing cocktails.
