Additional information: Ayuuk is based on Pasilla Mixe, a special, smoke-dried chili grown at 2,700 meters above sea level by the Mixe people. It is endemic to the Sierra Norte mountains outside of Oaxaca City, Mexico. The chili possesses a twilight, dark red fruitiness and a unique earthiness that reflects the rugged terroir in which it grows. The final spirit is based on pilsner malt, purple wheat, and Belgian Saison yeast with Pasilla Mixe as the botanical. It is left to rest in Oloroso Sherry Casks for 21 days.
