What is Bacanora?
Born in the Mexican state of Sonora, Bacanora is the bold, agave-based spirit that’s rapidly growing in popularity among Tequila and Mezcal enthusiasts throughout Mexico — and now the United States.
Grown and produced exclusively in the Sonora Mexico region, bacanora is handcrafted in small batches and made from a special agave plant, indigenous to the region known as Angustifolia Haw, or agave Pacifica. This distinctive variety of agave, along with Sonora’s unique soil and climate conditions, are what differentiates the rich, smoky flavor of bacanora from its popular Mexican cousins, tequila and mezcal.
The seductive taste of bacanora has caused quite a stir since it was first introduced more than 300 years ago in what’s now known as the state of Sonora, Mexico. Smoother than mezcal, smokier than tequila – yet just as powerful as either – bacanora boasts a history as complex as its flavor and wild as its spirit.
