About this bacanora

Rancho Tepúa Bacanora Blanco is produced by 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. His family produced Bacanora throughout the 77 year ban (1915-1992). This bacanora is produced using 100% agave Pacifica and cooked underground for 36 hours and then fermented with wild yeasts in stainless steel vats for 8-10 days. It is then distilled twice in an Arabic alembic still that has a stainless steel pot and a copper condenser. The ABV changes slightly from batch to batch.

  • Overall:

Lot 001103-16, 47.5% ABV. Bacanora has been referred to as “Mexican moonshine” but this one is surprisingly refined. Nothing rough about it. Subtle herbal and vegetal flavors. Clean taste with a sweet finish. No weird or off flavors. Very little ethanol burn. There were 2 different lots available when I purchased this. I chose the older distillation that had also been rested in glass for longer. Definitely give this a try. You might be amazed.
