Nixta Licor de Elote is a Mexican corn liqueur made from a base of tender, ancestral cacahuazintle maize grown in the high valleys and foothills of the Nevado de Toluca volcano in the State of Mexico. Nixta is produced at the Destilería y Bodega Abasolo, where the honour the Mexican culture of corn and the ancestral craft of nixtamalization—a 4,000-year-old Mesoamerican cooking technique that uncovers the deepest flavours and aromas of maize.


To create Nixta, the best tender corn of the season is macerated in an exquisite corn distillate and sweetened with clarified sweet wort—both produced from ancestral cacahuazintle grown near our distillery at a height of more than 7,000 feet above sea level.

Pure cacahuazintle corn is used in two different stages of development: Cacahuazintle sweet corn is macerated and prepared to extract all its delicate flavour. And ripe, cacahuazintle kernels are nixtamalized to produce a sweet wort and alcohol. Together, these ingredients make Nixta Licor de Elote into a flavourful, versatile liqueur that is true to its origin.
