Ancho Reyes Verde | Limited Edition | Roasted Poblano Chile Liqueur At the end of the summer, into the first days of autumn, the chile harvest takes place in the Southwest. The smell of roasting peppers fills the air at farmers markets and festivals where vendors mind mesh metal drums that turn methodically over an open flame. As the chile peppers start to blister and show their meat, they snap and pop to announce they’re done. The unmatchably wonderful taste and smell of roasted peppers can cause otherwise normal people to hoard sacks of them in their freezer to tide them over until the next year’s harvest. Some actually buy a separate freezer to store their stash. If someone could bottle this stuff, they might save the world—this little corner of it, anyway. Daniel Schneeweiss and Moises Guindi have come close. The spirits industry visionaries, who produced Milagro Tequila, Montelobos Mezcal, and Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur, have just released the latter’s “younger brother,” Ancho Reyes Verde, which contains roasted green poblano peppers. When fully ripened and dried, the poblano peppers are called ancho peppers, hence the name of the original liqueur. Ancho Reyes Original, made from ancho peppers, came by way of a 1920s recipe Schneeweiss and Guindi discovered. Ancho Reyes Verde is totally their take on using green poblano peppers.
