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

It is handcrafted using wild, locally grown Agave americana and each batch has a subtle variation.

To help you choose for your palate we started with is a Smoke Index rating,as mentioned in Glossary, but with the growing experience of our customers and the reduced variability of ASp this is no longer necessary.

If we produce a particularly smokey lot we will sell it as a separate expression for your selection.

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.


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.
