Half-Bottle of Estancia Pechuga Raicilla

Item # 48831 375mL

The best value for, and most importantly one of the best tasting, a pechuga style agave spirit we have had in quite some time. This special style is often high on promise and we find sometimes underwhelming but this, like the other racillas from Estancia overdelivers. The opening notes are full of heady, ripe tropical fruits that transition into funky notes and even some game. A truly wild spirit made with great integrity from 100% Maximiliana agaves, triple distilled in natural earthen clay pot stills.

Staff Pick Notes

Made from the Maximiliana agave, both the fruit and floral notes of this agave species seemingly jump out of the glass in this explosive Raicilla! Being a pechuga, there is also a savory umami quality that is imparted from the vapors that pass through the raw turkey breast that hangs in the still. Pumpkin seeds, apples, quince, lemon leaves, orange blossom, and more are added to this special recipe, creating a totally unique experience that endlessly captures my attention. On my first experience, it reminded me of a unique tropical fruit called cherimoya that is creamy, tropical, and oh so delicious. So many flavors combine together that you will encounter something new with every sip. If you are considering a new agave spirit, this is one you need to try!
