  • La Venenosa Sierra Occidental De Jalisco Raicilla 750ml

    Don Ruben’s raicilla is amazing on a variety of fronts. It’s another single distilled raicilla – and testimony to the skill of mezcaleros that they can get so much from a single distillation run. There are all sorts of quirks to how the Sierra Occidental is made, Don Ruben uses an adobe oven for his roasts and then a hybrid filipino / arabic still. At 42% ABV it mocks the traditionalist definition of a mezcal because it will stand up to anything at a higher percentage.

    Like many of Venenosa’s labels there isn’t much of it on the market. This lot has 800 bottles.

  • La Venenosa Tabernas Raicilla 700ml

    Note that this first edition Tabernas label is difficult to distinguish from the second edition. The easiest way to tell is by reading the rear label which clearly lists out all the production information. This bottle hails from June of 2017, it has been resting for a while so it is really integrated.

  • La Venenosa Sierra Del Tigre De Jalisco Raicilla 750ml

    This is easily one of the most unique spirits commercially available in the United States. I’ve only found spirits this distinctive traveling to distillers around the world and carrying bottles back in my luggage. The nose and flavor are redolent of fermented butter, the distillation process is just as unique. It’s a wonder of distilling that Don Luis Contreras gets it up to 46% ABV in a single distillation run in clay pots. His olla set up is like something out of a science fiction film, a cluster of pots all cemented together with the leftovers of previous distillation runs. Venenosa imports about 700 liters a year because Don Luis’ production runs are so small, he really can’t make that much more.

  • La Venenosa Los Gigantes Raicilia 750ml
