(39°) Local shade-grown arabica coffee beans and 20 year old rum are combined to create this distinctive liqueur. Deep robust notes of dusty, rich espresso with whiffs of anise integrate with richly textured flavors of tiramisu, mocha and vanilla.
Xolotl is actually a range of liqueurs produced by second generation master distiller Jose Villanueva Barragan (they have a tasty amaretto as well). Jose is highly regarded by his peers and is among a select few who work with the Mexican government to develop standard liquor protocols. These bold and nuanced spirits are matured in neutral French, Spanish, Sherry, and American oak casks, many of which are 40 to 60 years old. Xolotl Liqueurs pay homage to the memory of Alfonso Caso, an intrepid archeologist whose contributions to pre-Columbian studies include the discovery of rare artifacts at Monte Alban, an important archaeological site in Oaxaca.
