Empirical Spirits Ayuuk

The brainchild of experimental Danish distillery Empirical Spirits, Ayuuk (43% ABV) was released in October last year.

According to the Copenhagen-based producer, Ayuk is made with pasilla mixe chilli from Oaxaca in Mexico. The chillies 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 is said balance the chilli’s natural earth tones and pleasant spice.
