Ancho Reyes

Made in the Barrio del Artista in Puebla, Mexico, since 1927, Ancho Reyes is a spicy ancho chile–based liqueur that actually tastes like real peppers. The peppers set fi re to your mouth, but the heat gets tamed by the spirit’s brown-sugar sweetness and cinnamon, orange and vanilla notes.
