Artisanal distillation of wild agaves in Jalisco, Durango, and Chihuahua. Balam spirits have won four significant national awards in Mexico.
Xavier Villegran sources his beautifully distilled raicillas, sotols, and a churique from small artisanal distilleries. Production methods vary: pit ovens, above-ground adobe ovens, conoas, shredders, potstills of copper, clay, and stainless steel. Villegran is hugely invested in sustainable production, has erected large greenhouses, and is actively planting several wild varieties.
