Abasolo Distillery

Destilería y Bodega Abasolo honors the millenary Mexican culture of corn through our obsessive, innovative production of spirits that maintain their integrity from field to bottle. Every drop of Nixta Licor de Elote is produced at our distillery.

Honor the Legacy of the Land

Destilería Abasolo is located in the heart of Jilotepec at an altitude of 7,800 feet, making it one of the highest distilleries in the world.

Located on a property that was originally used for planting and drying corn, the destilería consists of restored old buildings—a stable, original cellar, and farmer’s house—along with a modern architectural structure inspired by traditional corn storage systems called "sincolotes”. Every element of the distillery is meant to reinforce and reinvent the ancient tradition and contemporary craft that is part of our production process and inherent in contemporary Mexican culture.

The distillery employs local workers from Jilotepec and other neighboring municipalities, training them in the corn trade and spirits production and contributing to the local economy.
