n the cantinas and cabarets of Puebla's Barrio del Artista, passionate discurso is fueled by unique menjurjes—homemade concoctions

created from a blend of native ingredients and local spirits.

One particularly popular menjurje created by the family Reyes was
the only one made from Puebla's signature crop: the beloved ancho
chile. Ancho Reyes is the original ancho chile liqueur—a smoky, heated celebración of the radical, the romantico, the independiente inside us all.

ncho Reyes is born from the sacred earth of Puebla, an original liquid as unique and independent as the ancho chile from wich it is made.


Deep bronze hue with medium body and high viscosity


Slightly pungent, followed by dried chile notes, spices, cinnamon, cocoa, tamarind, and wet wood with light herbal notes adding to the complexity.

Pleasantly sweet, followed by chile with moderate heat and slight acidity. Hints of spices, tamarind, plum, cacao, apple and almonds, then subtle notes of fine herbs. A pleasantly lingering pungent taste on the finish.

ncho Reyes Original and Ancho Reyes Verde are born from the sacred earth of Puebla, an original liquid as unique and independent as the ancho and poblano chiles from which there are made.


Tones ranging from light green to pale green with amber reflections, with medium body and high viscosity.


On the nose, fire roasted green poblanos, charred tropical fruit, and smoke

Notes of golden roasted pineapple, a touch of savory acidity, and the bright taste of green chiles, finishing with rich texture and piquant heat.

t only makes sense that Puebla’s beloved chile ancho would serve as the main ingredient in Ancho Reyes, one of the city’s most significant menjurjes. Great care has been taken

to fashion Ancho Reyes liqueur just as it was in the original family Reyes recipe.

Puebla’s agricultores take special care growing their chile poblanos. Soil is rested for three years before it again grows the peppers, and caring for the crop is a full-time ocupación.
Only the best ancho chiles are selected from the most reputable farms.
The ancho chiles soak and macerate in
neutral cane spirit within small iron vats
for half of a year.
The mixture rests allowing the flavors
to combine perfectly.
Ready now, the liquid is bottled. And each bottle is inspected individually then hand labeled every last one according to tradición. May the spirited debate begin!
Hand-picked from August to October,
the green chiles are placed in the sun to dry.
The smoky, fiery chile ancho is born!
One by one, each chile ancho is individually selected for quality and scissor sliced by hand for what is to come.
The maceration is taken from the vat and all ingredients are blended according to the ways the menjurje has always been made.
