With its earthy, dark red fruit and smoky notes, AYUUK pairs perfectly with Tequila or Mezcal in a twist on a Margarita, bringing depth of flavor and a hint of spice to the iconic classic.

The smoky Pasilla Mixe chili is the sole botanical and the source of all the complexity in Ayuuk. After distillation the best fractions are rested in a sherry Oloroso cask, allowing the flavors to infuse and mature with each other, giving a smooth, distinct, and savory finish.

We source the Pasilla Mixe chili directly from the farmers of the native Mixe community of the Sierra Norte mountains and pay for this incredible chili at its fair value.
