About this bacanora

Santo Cuviso Blanco is a bacanora made with wild agave Angustifolia. The piñas are roasted over mesquite and oak in an underground volcanic stone oven for several days. Then they are milled by hand and with a shredder. The juices are then poured into vats to ferment for 6-12 days with well water. The agave juice is double-distilled in handcrafted copper alambiques.

Santo Cuviso

Each batch of Santo Cuviso Bacanora is handcrafted from 100% Agave Angustifolio piñas, harvested in Sierra de Sonora, México, and distilled by their Master Bacanorero, whose process infuses every drop with three generations of distilling knowledge.

Bacanora production was banned for 77 years in Sonora, México, and those who were caught distilling agave were hanged or imprisoned, but the Chacón family persevered and when the ban lifted in 1992, the family was ready.

In addition to Bacanora, the brand has also released Sotol from two different regions of Mexico.
