Nixta is billed as the world's first corn liqueur. It's made by the team behind Abasolo, a Mexican whisky made from ancestral corn, at the Destilería y Bodega Abasolo in Jilotepec de Abasolo.

Nixta uses the ancient process for which it's named, nixtamalization, to derive flavor from its base of 100% non-GMO Cacahuazintle maíz. It's bottled at 30% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"Fire-roasted corn and creamy vanilla pudding are prominent on the nose, along with poblano peppers, tres leches, and tortilla chips. Plenty more corn on the palate, here with sweet creamed corn and buttery popcorn, leading into a finish with bell pepper, brown sugar, and simple syrup. A unique and memorable entrant into the world of liqueurs. "
