Spirits of the Week: Get Some Ancho in Your Life!
In the small town of Puebla de Zaragoza, they still practice a three year crop rotation to keep their soil nutrient-rich and healthy. One of these rotations is the traditional large green Ancho Chile. It is only after these are harvested that Ancho Reyes can be made.
Ancho Reyes is a wonderfully unique spirit flavored with Ancho Chiles that have been sun dried, sorted and cut by hand. They are then macerated in overproof sugar cane spirit. The resulting liquid is blended into a traditional “Menjurje” and laid to rest and mature in vats. When the flavors reach a harmonious state, Ancho Reyes is bottled by hand and inspected before release.
We are blown away by how complete and complex Ancho Reyes is. It is spicy, smoky, and a little sweet. We have had it on its own as an aperitif, used it for sauces and marinades, and taken advantage of its sweetness and spice in some killer cocktails. Pick up a bottle at special pricing this week, and get a little Ancho in your life.
Ancho Reyes is spicy, smoky, and sweet. It is a fantastic aperitif, great for cooking, and one of the most unique cocktail ingredients in the store.
Try it in this spicy margarita at our complimentary in-store tasting this Saturday, July 12th from 12:00pm-4:00pm
