Padre Nat's Tepache - 625ml
Made from pineapples sourced from Costa Rica, piloncillo from the Mexican state of Michoacan and a furtive selection of spices, this lightly alcoholic elixir is sure to please your palate.
Much like American Apple Pie, there is no recipe for Tepache. It is a traditional Mexican drink, frequently consumed out of a plastic baggie with a straw, sold by street vendors in Jalisco and made at home. It's not a cider - NO APPLES! The fermentation happens on the scales and rind of the pineapples, imparting a deep and unique flavor. This beverage is low-alcohol and sweet like a Summer Shandy or Radler due to a partial fermentation of the pineapples.
Pairs well with:
Light lagers, bottom-shelf ‘champagne’, simple hard cider, spiced rum, TEQUILA, vanilla ice cream.
