About this bacanora
Mazot Bacanora Uvalama made using maguey Pacifica (agave Angustifolia). Uvalama is a traditional flavoring of Bacanora, but it can be difficult to find. Uvalama is a wild tree fruit that is small, black, and grape-sized with a pit like an olive. It has a sweet/sour taste that adds a funky complimentary complexity to Bacanora. Uvalama also has medicinal properties as outlined in both folklore and science literature. It can reportedly serve as an anti-inflammatory, ant-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic. It’s no wonder Sonorans drink Bacanora for their health!
Mazot Bacanora is owned by Emilia Ezrre Becerra and her family. She is the matriarch and two of her sons, Manuel “Ramses” Chacon and Sinohe Chacon Ezrre, are the Maestros Vinateros who produce the bacanora.
