About this raicilla
Balam Raicilla del Llano is produced in Sierra Tuxcacuersco, Jalisco using agave Angustifolia. While Angustifolia is commonly used in mezcal production in Oaxaca, where most agave Angustifolia is referred to as Espadin, the Angustifolia from Jalisco smells, tastes, and feels quite different.
Balam Raicilla and Sotol 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 was the second brand of raicilla to legally enter the United States market. Villagrán sources artisanal spirits: mezcals in Oaxaca, raicilla in each of the three distilling regions of Jalisco (costa, sierra, llano), sotols from Chihuahua and Durango, and the rare churique from the tiny agave lechugilla.
