The Legend

Deep in the heart of the Sierra Madre Mountains, shrouded by the mists of time and legend, lies the distillery of Ruben’s Raicilla Remedy. Here, amidst the rugged terrain and the whisper of pines, Ruben’s ancestors discovered a hidden treasure — not of gold or jewels, but of a rare and potent spirit that would become known as Raicilla.

Legend has it that many moons ago, pirates seeking refuge in these mountains stumbled upon ancient indigenous tribes. The pirates, weary from their voyages and battles at sea, were healed and rejuvenated by a mysterious concoction offered by the wise tribal elders. This magical elixir was Raicilla, distilled from the finest agave plants, nourished by the fertile mountain soil and pure spring waters.

Ruben, a descendant of those very tribes, inherited this ancient secret and, with a blend of courage and reverence, continued the sacred tradition of crafting Raicilla. Each bottle of Ruben’s Raicilla Remedy is a testament to the authenticity and rustic charm of the Mexican spirit, embodying the healing properties that have been whispered about for generations.

Today, Ruben’s distillery stands as a bastion of tradition in an ever-modernizing world. It’s a place where the air is still thick with the aroma of fermenting agave and the spirit of adventure. Ruben’s Raicilla Remedy is not just a drink; it’s an invitation to partake in a legend, to savor a piece of history, and to experience the true spirit of Mexico.

So, raise a glass to Ruben, to pirates and tribal sages, to the mysterious mountains and the hidden treasures they hold. Here’s to Ruben’s Raicilla Remedy — the authentic, rustic, and medicinal spirit that’s been healing souls and lifting spirits for centuries. Here’s to the magic in the mountains and the legend in every bottle. Cheers!

The Process

The process of making Raicilla, and indeed its origins, is as storied and rich as the mountains from which it hails. Raicilla (pronounced rye-see-ya) began as a form of mezcal, a spirit deeply woven into the fabric of Mexican culture. It dates back over 400 years, originating from the western state of Jalisco, a region known for its volcanic soils and rich biodiversity.

The journey of creating Ruben’s Raicilla Remedy begins with the careful selection of the agave plant, known locally as “Lechuguilla” or “Maximiliana.” Unlike tequila, which uses only blue agave, Raicilla is made from a variety of agave species, each imparting its unique flavor and essence. The plants mature on the sun-drenched slopes of the Sierra Madre for up to fifteen years before they are ready for harvest.

Harvesting the agave is a labor of love and tradition, performed by skilled farmers known as “Jimadores.” They use a sharp tool called a coa to extract the heart, or “piña,” of the agave plant. These piñas are then transported to the distillery, where the magic of Raicilla truly begins.

The piñas are halved and slowly roasted in earthen pits lined with hot rocks. This underground oven is covered with agave leaves and earth, imparting a deep, smoky flavor to the agave hearts. After several days, the roasted piñas are unearthed, revealing their caramelized and fragrant flesh.

Next, the softened agave is crushed and mashed, traditionally by hand or with a stone wheel, to extract the sweet agave juices. This mash is then placed in wooden vats or stone pools, where it ferments with the aid of wild yeasts from the surrounding environment. The result is a potent, aromatic liquid that captures the very essence of the mountain air and flora.

Finally, the fermented mash is distilled in small, rustic stills, often made of copper or clay. This process concentrates the alcohol and flavors, resulting in the clear, potent spirit known as Raicilla. The art of distillation is a closely guarded secret, passed down through generations, with each family adding their subtle nuances to the flavor profile.

Ruben’s Raicilla Remedy is then rested, allowing the flavors to meld and mature, creating a smooth, complex spirit that is both strong and subtle. Each batch is a reflection of the land, the tradition, and the people who have devoted their lives to the craft of making this mystical spirit.

In every bottle of Ruben’s Raicilla Remedy, you’ll taste the wild agave, the smoke from the earth pits, the sweetness of the fermentation, and the purity of the mountain air. It’s more than just a drink; it’s a journey through history, a sip of the Mexican soul, and a testament to the art of traditional distillation. Here lies the spirit of the mountains, the essence of adventure, and the heart of Mexico. Cheers to the enduring legacy of Raicilla!
