A mixture of sharp raw and smoky cooked agave notes, whith with some cracked stone and old campfire notes. White and black pepper spiciness sit at the back along with earthy notes of sweet leather, freshly dug new potatoes and mineral-rich soil. Soft and sweet on the palate, with earthiness of the bouquet pushed back to reveal candied fruit, sugar syrup and floral touches. The spice still runs through the centre, with hints of dark rubber and river stones. Soft and lingering, with sweet creamy notes slowly becoming spicy before fading away to a dry finish,

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. This Raicilla is produced by Maestro Tabernero Don Alberto Hernández in the village of Llano Grande of the coastal region Cabo Corrientes, 700 metres above sea level. Don Alberto cultivates a mix of agaves: Rhodecantha and Angustifolia. Rhodecantha matures after 12 years and Angustifolia after eight. The agave is roasted in a wood fired adobe oven. It is distilled two times in a Philippino still made out of copper and a hollowed out tree trunk. 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.
