About this raicilla

Balam Raicilla Costa is produced by Don Rosalio Rodriguez in El Tuito, Jalisco using 100% agave Maximilana. After being cooked and crushed, the agaves are naturally fermented for 23 days before being double-distilled in steel stills. This raicilla has aromas of wood  and wildflowers with a hint of citrus. On the palate there are notes of cooked green agave, roasted fruits, and cold ash. Other batches (such as the bottle pictured) were made with agave Rhodacantha.

Balam Raicilla

Balam Raicilla was launched in 2016 by Xavier Villagran. He has taken careful consideration to find raicilleros that were previously not commercializing their raicilla, which has a reputation of being the moonshine of Mexico. Balam is only the second brand of raicilla to legally enter the United States market.

CH04-16. Thin and watery with a distracting band-aid flavor, some artichoke and brown sugar but mostly band-aid.
