the spirit of puebla

ANCHO REYES

In 1920s Puebla, the cantinas of the Barrio del Artista bustled with artists and intellectuals who gathered to exchange ideas over original homemade liqueurs known as menjurjes. One especially popular menjurje was handcrafted from the ancho chile. We pay homage to those original recipes with Ancho Reyes Original and Ancho Reyes Verde – authentic Mexican liqueurs steeped in the tradition of Puebla.

For Ancho Reyes Original, chiles are sun-dried for between 15 to 20 days to become ancho chiles. The dried chiles develop a rich, smoky, and fiery flavor. Ancho Reyes has a rich and complex warmth, followed by sweet spices and subtle acidity, and finishes with the pleasant, smoky heat of the ancho chile.
