Casa D’Aristi offers exotic, authentic, and natural liqueurs based on Rum. The distillery was founded in 1935 by the Aristi family and generations of loyal employees and dedicated family members upheld the Mayan liqueurs making tradition. Some of the most popular liqueurs from Casa D’Aristi are discussed below.
XTA is the latest expression of a traditional Mayan drink that is obtained from the nectar of Xtabentún flower. This flower is native to the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. The distillery produces the exclusive Mayan honey used to make the drink, from hives of stingless bees, which is an important Mayan tradition in the Yucatan Peninsula. The availability of XTA is limited by the small amount of Mayan honey that is made every year.
The Mayan honey is fermented carefully with fine anisette and the ingredients are then macerated in Mexican Rum of superb quality, which will intensify the natural flavors. The use of high quality ingredients and the careful production will result in an exotic spirit, which is truly rare in the market. Experts say that XTA is perfect on its own when served with ice, but it is also popularly used to enhanced cocktail recipes.
This is a honey liqueur, which is very similar to XTA, but has more honey, and the alcohol content is slightly low. This is a Yucatan classic with a great history, and is popular throughout Mexico. The alcohol by volume percentage of Xtabentún Liqueur is 30%, which is lower than that of XTA liqueur.
