Abasolo El Whisky De Mexico
Abasolo El Whisky De Mexico is crafted and distilled from 100% Mexican Cacahuazintle (kaka • wha • SINT • lay) corn, which has been cultivated and passed down for more than 200 generations by local farmers for its distinct, extraordinary flavor.
We couldn’t create The Whisky of México without building the first true whisky distillery in México. Destilería y Bodega Abasolo honors México’s culture of corn through our obsessive, innovative production of farm-to-bottle spirits. Every drop of Abasolo Whisky is produced and aged right here in Jilotepec de Abasolo, México.
Cooking technique: Abasolo uncovers the deepest flavors of ancestral corn through nixtamalization, a 4,000-year-old cooking technique never before used in whisky production, but fundamental in preparing corn as food in Mexico.
Barrel: Matured in new toasted and used oak casks in an open warehouse with a light roof and no walls where temperature fluctuations and changing conditions bring a unique aging profile.
Notes: Deep, nuanced notes of roasted corn, honey, vanilla, black tea, and leather, revealed through nixtamalization, are true to our Mexican ancestral corn provenance and unlike any other whisky profile.
