La Venenosa Raicilla Etnica Tutsi

La Venenosa Tutsi is an agave spirit from the Huichol people in northwest Jalisco. It disappeared for nearly 25 years and is now produced in small batches by a single producer.

Etnica is an extension of La Venenosa line of raicillas that serves as a platform to bring agave spirits from indigenous ethnic groups to the market. This agave spirit is from the Huichol people in northwest Jalisco. Tutsi was lost for about 25 years and there is currently only one practicing producer. This raicilla is made from 100% wild agave Masparillo, roasted in an underground oven, and fired by wood. The cooked agave is then milled by hand with mallets. The natural fermentation occurs in a rock pit, and it is single distilled in a Huichol still. Tutsi is extremely rare, only two or three 45-liter batches are made yearly. Tutsi is a complex spirit with woodsy notes intertwined alongside citrus and mineral.
