For more information: Abasolo Facebook / Instagram On the third Saturday of May, the world gathers to celebrate one of the oldest distillates: whiskey. This year, it’s time to celebrate Mexican style with Abasolo, the only whiskey made with cacahuazintle corn and ancestral methods. Before we go on, let us tell you a little about the origin of this celebration. International Whisky Day is an initiative promoted by the Scotsman Blair Bowman, expert and passionate about distillates. Bowman decided to spread the virtues of this distillate and promote its consumption among the new generations, emphasizing that there are no rules when drinking whiskey, anything goes as long as you enjoy it. Abasolo, the Mexican Whisky you should know about Mexico is one of the leading countries in the production of distilled spirits. We are famous for exporting tequila and mezcal, but did you know that Mexico is also a whiskey producer? Abasolo, México’s Whiskey, is produced by Casa Lumbre at the Abasolo Distillery and Winery: the first and only distillery in Mexico dedicated to the production of whiskey made exclusively from corn. It is located in the heart of Jilotepec de Molina, State of Mexico, at 2,400 m.a.s.l., one of the highest elevations in the world. Abasolo is the only whisky produced 100% from cacahuazintle corn, which is cultivated by more than 200 generations of farmers. In addition to using corn as a base, Abasolo is produced using nixtamalization, a technique that is more than 4,000 years old. Through these two resources, Casa Lumbre created a whiskey with a Mexican soul that pays homage to the millenary culture of corn. How are you going to celebrate this day with Abasolo? There is no right way to drink whiskey, the only rule is to enjoy it just the way you like it. Thanks to its smooth but interesting notes of corn, honey, vanilla, black tea and leather, Abasolo is the whisky for everyone: for your dad who enjoys his distillate on the rocks; for your avant-garde partner who is looking for innovative products and unique flavors; and even for your trendy friend who is always looking for the coolest drinks. Celebrate International Whisky Day your way with Abasolo! We recommend serving it on the rocks or mixing it with a touch of ginger beer and soda water.
