Uvalama is a traditional bacanora flavoring. Uvalama is a wild tree fruit about the size of a grape from the Uvalama or Vitex molis tree (see photos). The uvalama fruit has a sweet-sour taste, that adds a funky complexity to bacanora.
Bacanora is a distilled spirit from Agave Pacifica/Yaquiana (A. angustifolia spp. subspecies) with a Designation of Origin limited to the mountains of Sonora, with over 300 years of history, folklore and tradition. These traditions persisted through 77 years of prohibition that ended in 1992, with the NOM and designation of Origin established in 2000.
The Opatas, the original inhabitants of the Sierras, consider the deer (Mazot) a silent secretive spirit that inhabits the Sierra that has significant religious significance. The illusive Mazot is similar to the way bacanora was produced during 77 years of prohibition, hiding in the canyons and barrancas of the Sierra Sonorense to avoid detection.
