ASp

ASp is an Agave spirit made in Australia and inspired by Mexican traditions.

It is handcrafted usually with wild, locally grown Agave americana (sometimes with angustifolia) and each batch has its own unique taste.

While the signature of ASp is a smokey taste this will vary with each batch and each person’s taste/experience.

We recommend that you take the opportunity, when you can, to try a variety of Agave Spirits.

Each person will nevertheless have their own individual taste experience.  Please don’t forget that there are many other flavours to seek out beyond the smoke.

DRINKING ASp

This may be a new experience for some while others will have tried a variety of agave spirits.

To get the full ASp experience it is best for the drink to be unmixed and at room temperature.  If you have the opportunity try a number brands as each will have their own flavours.  The palate can be cleared between drinks with a slice of orange topped with a salt & chilli mix. Once you have your taste, seek out the other flavours within the drink.

ASp is also great in mixes and cocktails.  Try replacing other agave spirits with ASp, such as ASp Sunset (tequila sunrise).  More possibilities would include using ASp instead of other spirits.  How about a Snake Daquiri (ASp instead of rum).  The possibilities are infinite.  Check out some on our ASp Cocktails Page.
