Ancho Reyes is a traditional chili liqueur from the Puebla region in Mexico. In the 1920s, it was quite common for the local cantinas to offer a homemade “Menjurje” to its guests, which was sort of a local homebrew. Quite fiery and spicy in character, the liqueur has always been manufactured using the local poblano chilies. After sun-drying them for roughly 20 days, this special variety is called Ancho chili, hence the name of the spirit.
