Bacanora is an ancestral drink that is part of the Sonoran culture to the northwest of Mexico. A mezcal by definition, but a Bacanora by classification. In 1994 Bacanora obtained recognition under the denomination of origin protection. This distilled drink adopts its name from the municipality of Bacanora where it is believed that production first began. Production, nowadays, extends to many parts of the state of Sonora mainly in the Serrana regions. For decades during the early years of the 1900s, its production was banned, prohibited and ever saw people persecuted under the rule of Plutarco Elias Calles who was governor of the state of Sonora and later president of Mexico. However, this clandestine spirit survived. – Suppliers notes
