    About Raicilla: Raicilla is a mezcal that has been produced in the state of Jalisco for over 400 years. In the 1780's artisans who crafted their mezcals adapted the name Raicilla to avoid a mezcal tax levied by the Spanish Crown. The deception worked. Most people have little knowledge of Raicilla because the world's most famous mezcal, Tequila, became so popular that it overshadowed the other mezcal production in the state of Jalisco. Jalisco offers a great diversity of agave species, second only to Oaxaca. For this reason, along with diverse terroir, equipment and technique, Raicillas offer an amazing journey of flavor and history.
