¿WHAT IS RAICILLA?
La Reina® Raicilla (raicilla de la sierra) is an Agave Spirit made exclusively with agave maximiliana. This kind of agave is a unique endemic species that prefers the hilly shady areas for the sierra to grow.
In this region regulations say only 10% of the regions agave can be harvested, so this happens when the rainy season is over and agaves are no longer bloated. Agave maximiliana only reproduce from the seeds of the quiote (stalk), this means it does not produce hijuelos (baby clones that sprout from the roots) like many other types of agave.
