Raicilla is a Mezcal that has been produced in the state of Jalisco for over 600 years. With its recent Denomination of Origin Protection, the growth of Raicilla is booming. La Venenosa Raicilla is the OG when it comes to Raicilla. Created in 2011 by chef Esteban Morales to bring these hidden gems to the global market. In this expression, La Venenosa Puntas is considered the most prized and rare spirit. The puntas in this case refers to the upper portions of the agave hearts and the portion of the distillate separated right above them. This Raicilla is 63% ABV (126 proof), but it is elegant, subtle, and incredibly complex. It’s produced by Gerardo Pena (the cousin of Don Ruben Pena) with agave Maximiliana in Jacales, Jalisco. This Raicilla is fermented in a 200-litre oak vat and double distilled in a stainless steel still.
