The poblano chilis, used in the production of this liqueur, are cultivated in the volcano-enriched soils of Puebla. After harvest, the soil is rested for three years before it again grows chilis.
One by one, each poblano chilli is individually hand-selected for quality. For Ancho Reyes Verde, the chilis are harvested earlier, while green and a portion are fire roasted. These chilis express a bright, crisp, and fresh heat.
For 6 months, the chilis soak in a stepped process, macerating in small vats of neutral cane spirit from Veracruz, Mexico.
Imbued with chilli flavour, the resulting liquid is then hand-blended, to maintain consistent flavour and spice.
Once ready, the liquid is bottled. Each bottle is inspected individually then hand labelled according to tradition.
Ancho Reyes Verde has a bright and herbal taste with notes of golden pineapple and a savoury acidity finishing with the crisp, fresh heat of the poblano chili.
