La Venenosa Raicilla Puntas
La Venenosa Raicilla Puntas has been produced for over 500 years in the Mexican state of Jalisco, although it originally was considered mezcal. That was until it adopted a new name in the 1780’s as a way to avoid further taxation from the Spanish Crown.
If you've never had the pleasure of a Raicilla, then this is as good a place to start as any. Fermented in a 200 litre oak vat and double distilled in a stainless alembic still, the La Venenosa Raicilla Puntas is definitely worth a punt(as)*.
