It is called raicilla, it is a Mexican moonshine mezcal. The legalized stuff sold in stores is not the same, not nearly as potent.

It will not help in PV, but in Zihuatanejo there is a old gentleman nicknamed Senor Gunnysack as he carries his " Raicilla wares" in a gunnysack. He approches me every year at least once including this past season as I was about to enter a AA meeting. Talk about ironic!
I would think there must be a local PV bootlegger selling it. Of course it may make yoy blind! LOL
