Siglo Cero Pox is a Mexican brand and is produced in the Chiapas region, where Pox is particularly popular.
Siglo Cero Pox tastes sweet and is also reminiscent of corn, freshly baked bread and sugar cane juice that has been freshly squeezed. Some spirits experts say of Pox that it's like a blend of very light whiskey, grappa and rum. Now if that doesn't sound exciting.
Background of Pox
Pox originated in Chiapas and is attributed to the Tzotzil Mayas. The liquor was and is also considered a symbol of resistance of the first inhabitants of Mexico, who resisted the Spanish soldiers and missionaries. Especially against their spirit being misused for other purposes.
Recently, however, Pox has been triumphant in the bar and cocktail scene. In Mexico in particular, it is increasingly becoming a trendy spirit. However, Siglo Cero Pox, for example, is still very difficult to buy. It is also just 6 years ago that the sale of Pox was also allowed in the state of Chiapas. After that, Pox has started its spread in California, Texas, Nevada and Washington, but is certainly only at the beginning of its spread among connoisseurs.
