About this raicilla

Pizcadores Raicilla is produced using Agave maximiliana. The agaves are cooked in an underground oven for 48-72 hours, milled by hand with axes, and fermented for 12-15 days with native yeasts. They are then double distilled in a copper still.


Pizcadores is a family-owned company based in Bachiniva, Chihuahua. The family has run several businesses over the last three generations, ranging from apple orchards to Sotol production. In 2010, they decided to fully recover the tradition of Sotol in their region. After this, they continued their focus on artisanal distillates, bottling Bacanora in Sonora and Raicilla in Jalisco.

lote E2019211, 45% abv

Review #30: sweet florals like elderflower, and lavender on the nose and front of the palate, this has moderate smoke, light minerals, black pepper, a bit of tart fruit like strawberry.

This is all quite delicate and while the flavors are nice, it’s just a bit weak overall. I strongly preferred their sotol over this.
