Nixta Licor de Elote (Corn Liqueur) 70 CL 30%

Hecho en Mexico

Nixta Licor de Elote is a Mexican corn liqueur made from a base of tender, ancestral cacahuazintle (kaka • wha • SINT • lay) maize, grown in the high valleys and foothills of the Nevado de Toluca volcano. Nixta is produced at the Destilería y Bodega Abasolo, where we honor the Mexican culture of corn and the ancestral craft of nixtamalization—a 4,000 year old Mesoamerican cooking technique that uncovers the deepest flavors and aromas of maize.

COLOR
Intense straw with golden highlights

NOSE
Cornbread, toasted corn, vanilla and caramel

MOUTH
Notes of sweet corn perfectly balanced with toasted notes of roasted corn, vanilla and caramel

As a drink modifier, Nixta provides textural silkiness and rich, wide ranging, flavor versatility—adding unique, sweet or savory components to favorite drinks or used to create new craft cocktail recipes. Nixta can also be enjoyed neat or over ice.

AN HEIRLOOM OF THE LAND

To create Nixta, the best tender corn of the season is macerated in an exquisite corn distillate and sweetened with clarified sweet wort—both produced from ancestral cacahuazintle grown near our distillery at a height of more than 7,000 feet above sea level.
Pure cacahuazintle corn is used in two different stages of development: Cacahuazintle sweet corn is macerated and prepared to extract all its delicate flavor. And ripe, cacahuazintle kernels are nixtamalized to produce a sweet wort and alcohol. Together, these ingredients make Nixta Licor de Elote into a flavorful, versatile liqueur that is true to its origin.
