Master Taberenero Don Luis Contreras makes La Venenosa Raicilla Sierra del Tigre in the Manzanilla de la Paz village, which is approximately 2,000 meters above sea level. This Raicilla is made from agave Inaquidens, locally known as Bruto. This agave grows wild in coniferous forests and is roasted over wood embers in an earthen oven. The still used for this Raicilla is ceramic, Filipino style. Don Luis produces about 700 liters per year.

This is a rare La Venenosa, typically served at the end of the night due to its strong flavor and scent of blue cheese.

Tasting Notes

  • Notes: A detailed blue cheese note is the first aroma that greets the senses. This is soon followed by a delightful fresh fruit medley, with blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries creating a harmonious and enticing scent. The combination of berries and cheese gives this raicilla a distinct and memorable bouquet.

  • Palate: Upon tasting, the blue cheese notes carry over from the nose, blending seamlessly with the fruity flavors of blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. An additional leathery tone adds depth and complexity to the overall taste profile. The raicilla boasts a highly viscous mouthfeel, enveloping the palate with its rich buttery texture.

This raicilla offers a captivating balance of savory and sweet elements, making it an excellent choice for adventurous spirits enthusiasts exploring the diverse world of agave-based beverages.

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.
