Our founder Don Carlos Aristi was born in Progreso, a small fisherman’s port, in 1916. He had a heart for adventure and flavor, and set off at age 19 to travel the peninsula in search of Mayan culture and history. It was then that he discovered a true gem: an ancestral Mayan beverage.
Upon his return to Merida and convinced of the potential of his discovery, he perfected his own recipe. And so D’Aristi Xtabentún was born, together with a small liquor business that Don Carlos and his brother built with the aim of preserving the traditions, culture and flavors of their land.
Since then, Casa D’Aristi has grown to develop a portfolio of artisanal liqueurs which represent the best flavors of Yucatan, all produced with care in our land. Our promise is to follow our founder’s legacy, preserving and sharing the treasures of the Mayab with the world.
