The tree trunk distillation used by Alberto ‘Beto’ Hernández is something we don’t get to experience in most other spirits of the world. Unique in style and flavor, this coastal raicilla brings us a glimpse into some of the oldest distilling techniques of Mexico. This expression is historically significant, as well as culturally and economically impactful.
