Raicilla is a mezcal that is produced in the state of Jalisco for over 400 years. In the 1780’s, Artisans who crafted their mezcals adapted the name Raicilla to avoid a mezcal tax levied by the Spanish Crown. Most people have little knowledge of Raicilla because the world’s most famous mezcal, Tequila, became so popular that it overshadowed the other mezcal production in the state of Jalisco. Jalisco offers a great diversity of agave species, second only to Oaxaca. For this reason, along with diverse terroir, equipment and technique, Raicillas offer an amazing journey of flavor and history. La Venenosa Raicilla was created four years ago, by Chef Esteban Morales, to bring these hidden jewels to market. Esteban crisscrossed the state in search of the best producers in each region. The results today are 4 unique Raicillas, made by 4 different Maestro Taberneros, from 4 different regions, of 4 different species of agave, using 4 different techniques. La Venenosa Raicilla Sierra Del Tigre De Jalisco comes from the village Tienda Nueva, La Manzanilla de la Paz and is made from 100% agave Inaequidens.
