Raicilla factory and Showroom

A few months ago when Elke had a friend down from up north we piled in the car with Marcos for a trip to Tenacatita and to also check out Bill's lot in Aguas Caliente which is on the old Tenacatita road. Bill's place was totally over grown so the fotos were ineffective.

Off we headed for the beach and found the Raicilla distillery open in El Rebalsito and none of us had taken the tour. Really a neat setup with the whole process on display even though they don't make the liquor there. The display is more primitive than that actually used. They also tell you the difference between Green Agave grown on the coast and Blue Agave grown in the highlands. This is supposedly the Agave used to make Raicilla (a type of mezcal).

After tasting the free samples we were off to a day on the best beach on the Costalegre
