Nixta Licor de Elote is a Mexican corn liqueur made from a base of tender, ancestral cacahuazintle maize grown in the high valleys and foothills of the Nevado de Toluca volcano in the State of Mexico. 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.
Produced at Destilería y Bodega Abasolo with obsessive dedication to Mexico’s millenary culture of corn.
Ancient Mesoamerican technique of nixtamalization reveals the finest, richest flavors, ideal for mixing.
Best tender corn of the early season is roasted and macerated to obtain an exquisite cacahuazintle corn distillate.
Distillate is sweetened with previously clarified sweet must to accentuate elote sweetness and mixability.
