The La Venenosa Raicilla range was created by Chef Esteban Morales to bring small batch agave spirits to the global market. Esteban traversed the state of Jalisco in search of the best producers in each region where raicilla is produced.
Every one of these Raicilla expressions is unique; created by different Maestro Taberneros in distinct regions, from different species of agave using diverse techniques. La Venenosa was the first raicilla brought to market in the US. Though it has been produced for 500 years, Raicilla was rarely available outside of the local markets in Jalisco.
There is currently a move underway to create an official Denominacion de Origen (DO) for Raicilla.
