Make it Empirical

Our core spirit Ayuuk is based on Pasilla Mixe, a special smoke-dried chili that grows in a cloud forest. For this serve, the chili's earthy, dark red fruit and smoky notes are balanced out with the zesty, bite of ginger.


One 750ml bottle of Ayuuk makes for 15 cocktails. 

The Ayuuk & Fever-Tree Ginger Beer Bundle contains the following

1 x 750ml Bottle Empirical Ayuuk ($85.00)

1 x 4 pack 200ml Fever-Tree Ginger Beer ($7.99)



About the Cocktail 

The Ayuuk Mule is Empirical's reinterpretation of the classic Moscow Mule. 

By incorporating Ayuuk, we've added layers of complexity to this otherwise straightforward cocktail. The result is a rich and nuanced drinking experience where the earthy, smoky depth of Ayuuk enhances the zesty kick of Ginger Beer. This cocktail not only pays homage to a timeless favorite but is a great example of how an uncategorized spirit used in a classic can make it Empirical.



Origin of the Moscow Mule

The Moscow Mule was born in the 1940s in the United States, a product of collaboration between a vodka distributor and a ginger beer maker. Served in its iconic copper mug, this cocktail quickly became popular for its refreshing, spicy flavor and distinctive presentation. Over the years, the Moscow Mule has become a classic, celebrated for its simplicity and zesty profile, making it a perfect canvas for innovative reinterpretations like our Ayuuk Mule.

About Ayuuk

The smoky Pasilla Mixe chili is the sole botanical and the primary source of all the complexity in Ayuuk. Sourced directly from Mixe farmers in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, the chilis are then macerated in a spirit made from Danish heritage purple wheat and pilsner malt. After distillation the best fractions are rested in a sherry Oloroso cask, allowing the flavors to infuse and mature with each other, giving a smooth, distinct and savory finish. 43% ABV
