About this bacanora

Puntagave Rustico Bacanora is produced by at least two different Bacanoreros. Maestro Bacanorero Roberto Contreras at his palenque in Rancho Tepúa, Aconchi, in the state of Sonora. Roberto is a 5th generation Bacanorero and learned to produce Bacanora from his father, Don Lalo. Other batches may be made by maestro Bacanorero Jorge Rivas. This bacanora is cooked underground and then fermented with wild yeasts in stainless steel vats for 8-10 days. It is then distilled twice in copper stills.


Puntagave Artisanal produces ultra-premium tequila and mezcal. The company possesses a proprietary “Consistency of Character” through an extraordinary blend and “engineered process.” This process is achieved by the 2nd certified Maestro tequilero in the world, Guillermo Barroso Arnaud. His endeavor to produce the ultimate taste profile involved producing, experimenting, and revising up to 52 batches to get to the desired tasting profile. The mindset is to produce the truest form of Tequila and Mezcal, emphasizing on a high-agave taste profile, even in the aged expression.

Puntagave Rustico is a line of microclimate, terrior-driven spirits of Mexico. The brand focuses on a “complexity of character” rather than the “consistency of characters.” Every controlled denomination of Puntagave Rustico is a unique product of a specific origin, micro-climate, time, and method of production. Older bottles were labeled under the brand name Colectivo Regional instead of Puntagave.

Not bad. Bacanora always reminds me of rum, with an bit extra sweet character, then a twist of funk and earth. Decent example of the style.
