Rum produced from sugar cane grown in Mexico, it is a molasses rum (when heating the sugar cane, we have on the one hand the sugar and on the other hand the molasses, this residue from the production of cane sugar, a dark liquid, concentrated in sugars and aromas). The molasses is fermented before going through a double distillation in a column still (or Coffey still). After distillation, the rum is aged in old American oak barrels, before a finish in barrels that have seen red wines in Solera method, from the small town of Parras de la Fuente, in Northern Mexico.
Pixan is a young distillery founded in 2015 by Francisco Barrenechea and Sergio Valles, and is settled in Monterrey, in northeastern Mexico. In a country where tequila reigns supreme, you have to be resolutely passionate to take on the challenge of rum! This is the case of our duo, lately joined by Diego Martinez, who grew up in an agricultural region highly influenced by Mayan culture, became a chemical engineer and a real spirits buff. He is now Pixan's master distiller. In the Maya culture, Pixan (or Pishán) literally means “spirit that gives life”; and Pixan is a rum full of subtleties that awaken the senses and nourish the spirit.
