Discover Ancho Reyes Verde:

Acho Reyes Verde is the world’s only poblano chili liquor. 100% Mexican raw materials are used in the artisinal production process. The brilliant freshness of Ancho Reyes Verde and the fresh spice of the poblano pepper make it great for aperitifs, digestifs, and even as a base for delicious cocktails.

Liqueurs are distilled spirits that have been mixed with flavoring additives. They were first created by 13th century Italian monks as herbal cures and elixirs. A variety of herbs, spices, nuts, fruits, and flowers can be utilized, as well as a sweetener like sugar or corn syrup. While most examples are sweet, some are herbaceous or sour, and match well with desserts or make for a lovely addition to drinks.

Ancho Reyes Verde Review

Looking for a Ancho Reyes Verde and want it delivered to your door? You’ve come to the right store. We offer fast delivery with FedEx on all our products. In 2021, Ancho Reyes won the San Francisco World Spirits Competition with their Chile liqueur. Given the variety of chilli peppers available, it was just a matter of time until a sequel was released. The apparent line extension is Ancho Reyes Verde Poblano Liqueur, which pivots from red ancho chilies to green poblanos.

This is a more clear shift than you may think, because the ancho chile is simply a dried poblano, so we’re just skipping a step with this liqueur. The poblanos are simply roasted in this recipe, giving the liqueur a unique base. The Ancho Reyes Verde bottle is brilliant green, but the spirit itself is a light greenish-brown colour, not as vibrant as, example, Midori’s psychedelic hue, but still vivid enough to make a statement in the glass.

On the nose, it smells like a fresh poblano pepper, faintly roasted and strong, with the distinct aroma of a platter of cheese-stuffed chile rellenos. (Relleno de Chile? What am I supposed to know?)

On the palate, there’s some sweetness to help cut through the Ancho Reyes Verde’s highly vegetal note, but that sugar is swiftly tempered by some orangey citrus notes and a return of the poblano’s increasingly powerful pepper character. Although the peppery spiciness lingers on the tongue for the greater part of a minute, the finish is spicy but not overpowering. While the original Ancho Reyes works well on its own, Ancho Reyes Verde doesn’t have the same luck, and it truly needs the appropriate drink to shine, as the green chile flavor soon overwhelms the tongue if served alone.

Ancho Reyes Verde is grassy, herbal nose; intense and hot with earth, grass, poblano capsicum and some sweetness. Bartenders are finding great ways to use this unique product.

Discover Assorted Cordials

These sweet distilled liquids are frequently referred to as cordial or liqueur interchangeably. In the realm of drinks, however, cordial has a few different meanings:  Cordial is a term for the sweetest, most dessert-like distilled liquor. For example, you may see "cordial" on the labels of chocolate or cream spirits.   nonalcoholic, syrupy drink, such as lime cordial or elderflower cordial, is referred to as a cordial. It is more often used in the United Kingdom. Cordial was originally used to describe a sweet medical tonic that was very pleasant to drink.

Discover Assorted Liqueurs

Liqueurs are an alcoholic beverage made from distilled spirits and other ingredients including sugar, fruits, herbs, and spices. They are usually highly sweetened and un-aged beyond a resting time during manufacturing, if required, allowing their tastes to mix, and are often served with or after dessert.

Liquor, on the other hand, is sweet by nature, while liquor has a powerful taste that is everything from sweet. This word is really used to describe these sweetened spirits prepared with various tastes and extracts. One of the many reasons the two words are confused is because rum, brandy, and whiskey may all be used as a base spirit for liqueur. Liqueurs are liquors that have been sweetened and diluted. Liqueurs typically have an alcohol level of about 15% (compared to 40% in liqueurs), although they may reach up to 55%.

Liquors come in a variety of tastes, ranging from sweet and creamy to citrus-flavored and everything in between. Because many liqueurs are sweet and smooth, they may frequently be drunk without mixers or complex cocktail recipes.

About the Producer: Ancho Reyes

In the 1920s, the cantinas of Puebla's Barrio del Artista were bustling with artists and intellectuals who convened to debate ideas over homemade liqueurs known as menjurjes, which were created by local artisans. One very popular menjurje was made by hand using ancho chile, which is a type of chili. A tribute to those original recipes is paid by Ancho Reyes with the introduction of Ancho Reyes Original and Ancho Reyes Verde, two authentic Mexican liqueurs rooted in the history of Puebla.
