How to drink Empirical: Ayuuk Flip
The main ingredient in this spirit, Pasilla Mixe, is a special, smoke-dried chili grown at 2,700 meters above sea level by the Mixe people — known in their native language as Ayuuk. Once fully ripened, the chilis are partially dried on the plant and finished on wicker racks over gnarled hardwood smoke. The true Pasilla Mixe possesses a twilight, dark red fruitiness and a unique earthiness that reflects the rugged terroir in which it grows.
