Bacanora is the most traditional drink in the state of Sonora, Mexico, just as the Tequila is the most traditional drink in Jalisco, Mexico. Bacanora has more than 300 years being produced in the state and the secrets of its elaboration have been taught through many generations.

This tradition is so important that Sonora Querida, a very traditional song, mentions Bacanora.

On November 6, 2000 the Official Gazette of Mexico published the “General Declaration of Protection to the Name BACANORA”. The former declaration appoints Sonora as the only state in which the production of Bacanora is acknowledged

Bacanora is produced from Agave Pacifica, also called Agave Yaquiana, whose scientific name is Angustifolia, a plant that grows in the Sonoran Mountain Range.
