Ancho Reyes "Ancho" Chile Liqueur is created by the Reyes family using Puebla's signature crop ancho chile. The green chiles are hand picked between August and October and then placed in the sun to dry. The dried ancho chiles soak and macerate in neutral cane spirit for about six months in small iron vats before it is bottled and hand labeled.
Deep bronze in color, Ancho Reyes "Ancho" Chile Liqueur offers prominent chile notes on both nose and palate with rich, vivid notes of tamarind, cinnamon, cocoa and dried spice. The mouthfeel is thick with a hint of sweetness and pleasantly spicy finish.
"Though it's made with ancho chiles, this liqueur is modest on the spice scale. Caramel-y brown in the glass, look for a lightly herbaceous aroma similar to root beer and rounded flavors that mix caramel and cocoa with raisin and cinnamon heat, with a faint smokiness on the finish. Particularly harmonious mixed in cocktails with brown spirits like whiskey." - Wine Enthusiast
