How It Is Made
Our process begins by roasting wild agave Maximiliana pinas for 2 days in an above ground adobe brick oven. The pinas are ground to a pulp using a trituadora machine before the juice and fibres are fermented in open oak barrels and clay amphoras using wild airborne yeasts. When the ferment is ready it is double distilled in copper alembic stills to create Estancia’s aromatic Raicilla.
The flavour of our spirit is very much a product of the highland climate and the rich red soils where our agave’s grow. These high altitudes, along with our production process, create the floral aromas that make this spirit truly special.
