Abasolo is produced in Jilotepec de Abasolo, Mexico, and is said to be the first distillery devoted fully to Mexican whisky, as well as the first 100% corn whisky from Mexico. The whisky is made from Cacahuazintle corn which undergoes nixtamalization, a traditional process of soaking and cooking the corn before washing and hulling the grain. A small portion of the corn is malted and added at the mashing point. Abasolo is double pot distilled and matured for 24 months in used American oak barrels, and is bottled at 43% ABV.
It's cool to see more countries enter the whisky market. This is delicious, and unlike anything else in your home bar. The corn is prominent, but not in a moonshine way since this is aged.
