Bonete Raicilla Sierra 750ML
Bonete Raicilla Sierra 750ML
Bonete Raicilla Sierra 750ML is an exceptional spirit that encapsulates the passion and dedication of preserving age-old techniques and cultural heritage. Produced from agave Maximiliana in a single distillation process, this exquisite beverage stands testament to the art of traditional distillation.
The agaves are roasted in an adobe oven, fueled by black oak, above the ground, initiating a flavor journey that is as intriguing as it is unique. The true hero of the process, however, is the rare and exotic tree trunk known as Bonete (Jacaratia Mexicana), found only along Mexico's Pacific coast.
Utilizing this unique tree trunk during the distillation introduces a distinct flavor profile that remains unmatched by modern, high-efficiency stills. Despite the Bonete's low yield and short lifespan, producers in Jalisco hold immense pride in continuing this ancient practice, believing it to be vital in upholding their cultural heritage.
Master distiller Joaquin Solis crafts this outstanding Raicilla using Bonete, a slender, tropical tree that requires six months to mature and produces a fruit cherished by the local jungle fauna, including bats. This exclusive and exotic spirit is only available in the United States, symbolizing the richness of Mexico's cultural heritage.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
