Nixta Licor de Elote
Nixta Licor de Elote is an ancestral corn liqueur from Jilotepec, Mexico – the birthplace of corn. More than just a crop, corn is a foundational element and valued heirloom in the cultural identity of Mexico, and Nixta was created to be the world’s purest form of ancestral corn distillation. Intended for bartenders, spirits nerds, and people who love corn shaped objects, Nixta’s packaging is inspired by culinary glass forms and crate labels found in early 20th century Mexican neighborhood markets.
