Etnica, part of the La Venenosa Raicilla collection, is a truly exceptional agave spirit that aims to bring the hidden treasures of indigenous ethnic groups to the market. Created by Chef Esteban Morales, the collection showcases different varieties of Raicilla crafted by Maestro Taberneros in distinct regions of Jalisco, Mexico.

Tutsi, locally known as a Raicilla but referred to as such for convenience, is a rare agave spirit from the Huichol people in northwest Jalisco. For approximately 25 years, Tutsi was lost, and today only one active producer is preserving its traditional production.

Crafted exclusively from 100% wild maguey Masparillo, Tutsi undergoes a meticulous and unrefined production process. The agave hearts are roasted in an underground wood oven, imparting unique flavors to the spirit. The cooked agave is then manually ground using mallets and undergoes natural fermentation in a rock pit, allowing the flavors to develop naturally. Finally, Tutsi is single-distilled using a Huichol still, a traditional distillation apparatus.

Due to the limited production, only two or three 45-liter batches of Tutsi are produced each year, making it an exceptionally rare and sought-after spirit. Its flavor profile is characterized by multifaceted notes, with woodsy overtones blending harmoniously with citrus and mineral flavors. This combination creates a truly remarkable and unique tasting experience.

Etnica and the La Venenosa Raicilla collection are a testament to Chef Esteban Morales' dedication to discovering and sharing these hidden treasures with the world while also honoring the rich cultural heritage of indigenous communities. Each bottle represents a remarkable journey through the diverse flavors and traditions of Jalisco's agave spirits.

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.
