About Siglo Cero Pox
Pox is a traditional Mexican drink that has roots in Mayan culture, especially that from Chiapas in southern Mexico. The spirit is made with four native corns, wheat, and sugarcane. It was drunk during ceremonies and was considered to be a natural elixir. The name Pox (pronounced "posh") comes from the Mayan language Tzotzil and translates to "medicine". The goal of Siglo Cero is both to preserve the spirit and the rich tradition behind it as well as share it with the world. The logo represents the 3 sacred Mayan birds: the eagle, the quetzal, and the owl.
Crafted with an original centuries-old recipe from Chiapas, the ingredients of Siglo Cero Pox are as follows: white corn (12%), red corn (12%), yellow corn (10%), black corn (10%), wheat bran (28%), cane sugar (20%), and piloncillo (8%). All the corn is grown sustainably and sourced from local farmers in Chiapas. First, the sugarcane is crushed, extracting the juice. It is then boiled into a "piloncillo". Then the dried corn is ground. Wheat bran goes into a wooden vat along with local spring water and is left to ferment for 10 to 18 days. Finally, the liquid is double-distilled using wood-fired copper stills. Right off the still, the spirit is anywhere between 104 and 120 proof. Before it is bottled, it is brought down to 84.4 proof. Siglo Cero Pox has won a Silver Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
