Item Description

Xtabentun is a liqueur with a long history in the Yucatan, originating with the Mayan production of honey made from the Xtabentun flower. D'Aristi Xtabentun evolved from a liquor produced by the Mayans with the addition of native anis flavor introduced by the Spaniards around 1550. This liqueur has a delicate flavor and aroma, as natural and exotic as its homeland of sun and history in the Yucatan. Serve straight, cold, or with ice and honey; a great accompaniment to coffee-a Mayan coffee, or in equal parts with tequila for a Yucatan Margarita.. Vibrant yellow with a bright greenish hue. Concentrated anisette from beginning to end; finishes with a thick, rich honey. Chocolaty and warm, with a minty middle. A well-made, well-balanced product.

Darista Xtabentum

Darista XtabentumXtabentún is an anise liqueur made in Mexico's Yucatán region from anise seed, and fermented honey produced by honey bees from the nectar of xtabentún flowers. Rum is then added to the anise and honey mixture. Because of the rum content, the xtabentún liqueur is sometimes called a "distilled honey" beverage, which is misleading, because the honey alcohol is fermented, not distilled. Distilleries still survive today in the Yucatán that produce the liqueur.
