La Venenosa Raicilla Costa is produced by Maestro Tabernero Don Alberto Hernández in the village of Llano Grande of the coastal region Cabo Corrientes, 700 metres above sea level. The agave in this Raicilla varies widely from batch to batch. Certain batches are 100% Agave Rhodacantha (Mexicano) and others are an ensamble of Amarillo and Chicho Aguilar.
It is roasted in a wood fired adobe oven and distilled two times in a Philippino still made out of copper and a hollowed out tree trunk. The flavor is complex, bouncing around between fruit, spice and herbs, eventually settling on sweet spice.
