About this destilado de agave

Estancia Destilado de Pulque is made with the Agave salmiana in Nanacamilpa, Tlaxcala. The sugary water is drawn out of the agave slowly (10-20 liters per plant per day). The agua miel then ferments for about 48 hours in fiberglass bottles. It is then distilled twice in a short copper column still.

Estancia Raicilla

Raicilla Estancia is made in the highlands of the Sierra Madre Occidental. In 2014, Rio Chenery left New York City for the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico with the hope of making his family’s favorite drink. The legend goes that in the ‘60s his grandfather, who worked for the Tecate beer company, came across a rare agave spirit in the small mountain town of Mascota on a business trip and fell in love with it. The locals called it Raicilla, and over the years it became a family favorite. Estancia Distillery is founded with the vision of bringing this rare agave spirit to the world.
