ASp is an Agave spirit made in Australia and inspired by Mexican traditions.
It is handcrafted using locally grown agave and each batch has a unique taste. The most notable variation is in the smoky character.
To help you choose for your palette there is a Smoke Index rating of 1 to 7. The SI of 1 will be a subtle feeling of smoke while 7 would be like a bushfire in your mouth.
Each person will have their own individual taste experience. Don’t forget that there are 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 with different Smoke Indexes. The palette 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, if you consider the SI. How about a Snake Daquiri (ASp instead of rum). The possibilities are infinite.
