Made in the highlands of the Sierra Madre Occidental, Raicilla (pronounced rye-see-ya) is an Agave spirit deeply rooted in tradition. With a 400 year history in Mexico, our artisan spirit highlights the floral characteristics of the Maximiliana agave, commonly known as Lechuguilla.
From the root or “piña” of the Lechuguilla surface a bouquet of light citrus and floral aromas that are joined by notes of hibiscus, beach plum and pineapple. In comparison to its agave cousins, Tequila and Mezcal, Raicilla is considered the most fragrant and fruity.
Estancia Raicilla has a light nose with notes of citrus and roasted fruits and an irresistibly crisp and balanced palate with a medium sweetness and smooth mouth-feel.
