Raicilla is made with agave Maximiliana and is produced for us by Gerardo Peña. Don Gerarado does everything by hand, from planting and harvesting the agave Maximiliana, roasting the agave in a wood-fired adobe oven of his own unique design, mashing and fermenting the agave, and distilling the spirit in stills that he designed and built himself. We honor his spirit by bottling and labeling our Raicilla by hand as well.

‘Twas a girl I learned it from, Living down Sonora way.”
excerpt from the poem “The Border Affair”
by Charles Badger Clark, 1907)
And so it was, that a certain Tomás traveled to Mexico and met a girl from Sonora way, with roots far south in Michoacán. She regaled him with stories of Mexico and her family’s history with Mezcal. “Respect the spirit,” the ancestors say. Not just the spirit in the bottle, but the spirit of Mexico and Mezcal. It’s a simple love story really, that inspired the creation of Tomas Artesanal. Today, the couple works with local mezcaleros to create unique artisan agave spirits.
