Nixta Licor de Elote is a one-of-a-kind Mexican corn liqueur!
Aromatic, sweet, with hints of roasted corn, vanilla and caramel. The Nixta's taste takes us back to traditional Mexican cuisine.
How Nixta is produced?
Nixta is produced at the Destilería y Bodega Abasolo, using the ancestral craft of nixtamalization — a 4,000-year-old Mesoamerican cooking technique that uncovers the deepest flavors and aromas of maize.
To create Nixta, the best tender corn of the season is macerated in an exquisite corn distillate and sweetened with clarified sweet wort — both produced from ancestral cacahuazintle (kaka • wha • SINT • lay) grown in the high valleys and foothills of the Nevado de Toluca volcano, at a height of more than 7,000 feet above sea level. Pure cacahuazintle corn is used in two different stages of development: Cacahuazintle sweet corn is macerated and prepared to extract all its delicate flavor. And ripe, cacahuazintle kernels are nixtamalized to produce sweet wort and alcohol. Together, these ingredients make Nixta Licor de Elote into a flavorful, versatile liqueur that is true to its origin - Nixta.
