Description

Alambique Serrano is an artisanal rum brand consisting of unique blends and single-cask selections of rums distilled from sugarcane juice in the cloud forest of Oaxaca, Mexico. Organic sugarcane hand-harvested at up to 3900 feet above sea level is processed with a mobile mill before natural fermentation and distillation. Aging takes place in a variety of vessels and environments, from French oak in a humid cave to glass demijohns in a dry bodega. All bottlings are cask strength.

This brand is 100 years in the making, the four Krassel brothers continue the work that their grandfather Max started in the 1930s after fleeing his home country of Germany at the start of WWI. With no knowledge of Spanish, Max began working any odd job that he could find. He eventually found himself in the mountainous Cañada region of northern Oaxaca, where he learned the ropes of distillation before setting out on his own to produce aguardiente using a still he designed and built himself.

More than a century since Max Krassel landed in Mexico, his grandsons Isidoro, Rommel, William, and Axel continue to carry on the family legacy of high-quality rum production full of passion, ingenuity, and dedication.
