Empirical Spirits 'Ayuuk'

Copenhagen, Denmark

Pasilla Mixe is a special, smoke-dried chili grown at 2,700 meters above sea level by the Mixe people. Once fully ripened, the chilis are partially dried on the plant, and finished on wicker racks over gnarled hardwood smoke. The chilli are sourced from the traditional Mixe people in the Sierra Mixe mountains in Mexico, after a trip there by the two makers Lars and Mark. For Ayuuk, the chilis are macerated in low wine, distilled, blended with spent Pasilla Mixe kombucha, and finished in Oloroso casks for five days. The base of purple wheat and Pilsner malt rounds out the chili’s natural earth tones and pleasant spice. Earthy, dark red fruit, smokey. Serve with neat or with ginger ale.

About the maker

Empirical Spirits is inspired by the role flavour plays in our ability to create and transport experiences.

When Lars Williams and Mark Emil Hermansen set off in creating Empirical Spirits in 2017, they were guided by a child-like curiosity about how the world works. This perspective blended with their knack for tinkering, exploration, and continual refinement. The result? A powerful blend that pushes Empirical Spirits to be focused on creating the best flavours possible. With custom-built machinery, hybrid fermentation techniques, low-temperature distillation, and sourcing the highest-quality ingredients globally, all to achieve their vision of creating a new and unique experience with spirits.
