Raicilla Alicantes Pintos

Raicilla Alicantes Pintos

Raicilla Alicantes is made of 11 years old 100% bio Agave Rhodacantha. It is a type of Mezcal from the state of Jalisco made of a special type of yellow agave growing in the coastal area. A pre-Hispanic production process is followed and distilled in alembics, the traditional clay pots.
Raicilla literally means “drink from roots”. During the colonial period, distillation was banned, and the locals called it under a different name to hide the fact that it was a kind of mezcal.
A market and a tradition began in this region because of the rules that tried to ban their consumption. This is true of all indigenous spirits of that time.

Due to its illegal origin, it is called Mexican Moonshine.

It is known that the Huichole tribes (an indigenous culture from southern Mexico) produced Raicilla thousands of years ago in the Sierra Madre Occidental, north of Jalisco, south of Nayarit and neighboring communities.

The agave from which it is made grows on the Pacific coast of Mexico, so it can only be found in certain areas so that it can be different from other mezcal.
There are currently 20 recognized Raicilla brands at CMPR (Mexican Raicilla Producers Committee).
