During the 2021 edition of the Top World Spirit Awards, the Hacienda El Divisadero raicilla got the highest recognition after receiving the Gold Medal, thanks to the quality of its flavor and aroma that enhances this Chico Aguiar agave distillate.

This distinguished contest, held in Paris, France, was made up of a 16-member jury, including renowned taster Christophe Guitard, as well as sommeliers Myriam Huet and Mona Khalife, who rated more than a dozen of spirits and distilled brands, choosing the Hacienda El Divisadero raicilla, led by Jorge Luis Carbajal, as their favorite.

Hacienda El Divisadero was founded in 1999, undertaking the task of recovering the artisanal production process of the raicilla, from the jima until its distillation.

The raicilla is gaining strength at the national level and thanks to recognitions such as the Top World Spirit Awards, the work of all the raicilleros is obtaining international importance.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is the number one magazine of its type in Vallarta · Nayarit. We were the first ones to advertise, because we saw it as an ideal platform to show our properties. The result? For a long time it has generated an extraordinary quantity of clients. Now in addition to that, it contributes to the positioning of our brand.”

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."
