  • Raicilla Tastings 

Mexico has always been known for having a rich culture and history along with producing the quality craft drinks. Tequila, raicilla, and mezcal are important parts of Mexico’s history. The Denomination of Origin has recently started protecting raicilla. The raicilla is distilled by using crude, authentic skills where the mash is fermented. The raicilla process will produce different flavors based upon the soil type, weather, yeasts, topography, water, and the specific Maestro Raicillero producer in charge. When raicilla is finished, the liquid has no color if it is being matured in a glass. On the contrary, it will have more of a yellow color if it is matured in a wooden container.
