About Empirical Ayuuk

The smoky Pasilla Mixe chile is the sole botanical and the source of all the complexity in Ayuuk. One of the rarest chiles in the world, Empirical Spirits sources it directly from Mixe farmers in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, and macerates it in a spirit made from Danish heritage purple wheat and pilsner malt. After distillation the best fractions are rested in a sherry Oloroso cask, allowing the flavors to infuse and mature with each other, giving a smooth, distinct and savory finish.

    Unexpectedly delicious

    Love this in a spicy margarita. Also had it with ginger beer and lime, which I enjoyed almost more.

    A taste of Oaxaca

    This is one of the most unique and delicious things I’ve tasted. Earthy, smoky, and super fun to cocktail with.

    I used it in a spicy Margarita, and it was killer.
