Raicilla - From moonshine to it's own Denomination of Origen
Enjoy a cocktail, samples of raicilla, food from Popol Vuh and let's look at the the history of Raicilla.
It is distilled in crude, primitive stills from a fermented mash made from the central stem (piña) of the maguey plant. The mash is slow cooked, and the steam condensed on a copper cone cooled, traditionally, by spring water. To make a liter of Raicilla takes 10 kg of agave.
Many different species of agaves are used to produce Raicilla, including Agave angustifolia ("Chico Aguiar" or "Yellow"), Agave maximiliana, Agave inaequidens and Agave rhodacanta. If not watered down it is usually more than 100 proof.
