“Bacanora consumption had become so widespread throughout the state, the intolerant government banned the spirit, and severely punished anyone caught drinking or making it. With the ban lifted, and bacanora given the decree of age and origin, the spirit is now being exported outside the state and sold all throughout Mexico and, more recently, the United States. Bacanora is back, bold and better than ever!”

Federal Commerce Department Delegate, Sonora Mexico & Leading Bacanora Expert
