Empirical Spirits is about pushing the boundaries of what a spirit is. The Ayuuk is something smokey, full of red fruit & earth-driven. Inspired by the Pasilla Mixe chilli from Oaxaca (known as ‘Ayuuk’ in the Mixe’s native language’). After distillation, Empirical blend only the most desirable cuts. This blend is then rested in a sherry cask, allowing the flavours to infuse and mature with each other, giving a smooth, distinct and savoury finish. Sexy stuff.
