Puntagave Rustico Raicilla 750ML
Puntagave Rustico Raicilla 750ML - Raicilla has been produced for over 500 years in the Mexican state of Jalisco, Mexico. Jalisco offers a plethora of agave species, second only to Oaxaca. However, the Tequila made in Jalisco can only be made with blue agave. Raicilla from Jalisco can be made with many different agave types scattered across the landscape.
Puntagave Rustico is a line of Mexican spirits produced by Victoriano Joya in the Cabo Corrientes region, 700 meters above sea level. The Agave Rhodacantha is roasted in an earthen pit, double distilled in copper stills and a tree trunk, creating an aroma of parmesan cheese with an earthy green touch.
Puntagave Artisanal produces ultra-premium tequila and mezcal using a proprietary "Consistency of Character" process engineered by Guillermo Barroso Arnaud, the 2nd certified Maestro tequilero. The focus is on a high-agave taste profile, even in old expressions, achieved through experimentation and refinement of up to 52 batches.
Puntagave Rustico focuses on the "complexity of character," with each expression unique to its origin, micro-climate, time, and production method. Older bottles were labeled under the Colectivo Regional brand.
A delicate blend of milk chocolate, buttercream, and a hint of orange creamsicle, with a slightly minty finish.

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.
