Casa D’Aristi is a small producer located in the Yucatán peninsula in the beautiful town of Me ́ rida, Mexico. With a heart for adventure, founder Don Carlos Aristi set off at the age of 19 in search of Mayan culture and history while traveling the Yucatán peninsula. In 1935, he returned home and set out to recreate “Blaché” , an ancestral drink of the Maya. He called his unique version of the brilliant anise and honey laced liqueur, D’Aristi Xtabentún. Several generations later, Casa D’Aristi crafts a range of spirits, but the D’Aristi Xtabentún remains the cornerstone of the distillery. Committed to producing high-quality, authentic selections, the Artisti family prides themselves on sustainable practices through close relationships with local farming communities and ethically sourced quality ingredients. A modern-day take on a classic Mayan drink, XTA (short for 'xtabentun') combines rum, aniseed from Yucatan and Mexican honey. With a texture of light syrup, the palate opens with rich, fresh anise and overtones of minty freshness. A wave of honey and juicy orange, with underlying anise, continues throughout. Delicious chilled or on the rocks, XTA is a great addition to a Spanish Coffee or in any tequila, whisky, or gin based cocktails.
