Eau de Vie '#2 - Tuna (Prickly Pear)'

Eau de Vie Tuna Prickly Pear Edenico
  • Prickly pear eau-de-vie produced in Agua Temazcal, Cuicatlán, in the Sierra Norte of Oaxaca
  • Maestro Destilador Rommel Krassel
  • Distilled from 100% tuna (prickly pear) sourced near the distillery in Cuicatlán
  • Fermented in stainless steel for 10–12 days using Champagne yeast
  • Distilled twice in copper alembic pot stills
  • Rested in glass 1 year before bottling
  • Starchy and piquant aromas of taro root, fresh horseradish, jicama, and freshly julienned green apple lead to a high-toned palate of nopales underscored by candied peanuts. Sweet-tart candied hibiscus lands on a delightfully delayed finish.
  • Approximately 200 liters produced each year
  • 42% ABV

The prickly pear is known in Mexico as tuna (ahem – be careful not to confuse it with the fish) and is, in fact, the fruit of the paddle cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica). Savory and juicy pink bulbs blossom at the tips of the cactus leaves; the fruit is popularly used in everything from salad to ice cream. Bright and boldly aromatic, Edenico’s prickly pear unquestionably stands out amongst the most unique eau-de-vie in the world.
