Ayuuk Old Fashioned Kit

From us, to you

The Old Fashioned is a classic we’ve played around with a lot, using the smoky flavors of our Pasilla Mixe chili spirit Ayuuk as a base. To help you cosy up during the holidays season, we asked our head of R&D Chris to carefully craft a cocktail kit that reflects our daily work at the distillery, and our attachment to the story of the Pasilla Mixe chili.

Due to local regulations we are unfortunately not able to ship this cocktail kit to the U.S. and Canada.

We want to give you the most unique Empirical experience and one that is also very much connected to our daily work at the distillery.

Chris has made a few Old Fashioneds in his time as a bartender. He’s also eaten his fair share of mole. The Old Fashioned Bitters he came up with, draw inspiration from both classic aromatic cocktail bitters and Mole Negro, which is kind of the perfect crossover of flavors to tie the Ayuuk Old Fashioned together. We also chose to use Piloncillo instead of classic sugar or simple syrup.

The kit also comes with two “Universal glasses” from our friend and artist Svend Sømod. Everything is packed in a handcrafted box made by Danish company ELVO from carefully selected sustainable fiberboard. We hope you’ll give it a second life.
