Nixta Licor de Elote is a Mexican corn liqueur made from a base of tender, ancestral cacahuazintle maize, grown in the high valleys and foothills of the Nevado de Toluca volcano. Nixta is produced at the Destilería y Bodega Abasolo, where they honour the Mexican culture of corn and the ancestral craft of nixtamalization—a 4,000 year old Mesoamerican cooking technique that uncovers the deepest flavors and aromas of maize.
The colour of Nixta Licor de Elote is intense straw with golden highlights. On the nose there is cornbread, toasted corn, vanilla and caramel. The palate brings notes of sweet corn perfectly balanced with toasted notes of roasted corn, vanilla and caramel.
