Using a German copper-pot alembic, they fuse old & new world distilling traditions to produce the finest hand-crafted, small batch liqueurs & spirits from organically-grown mangos, oranges, mandarins, and blue agave. Our products have won medals at seven international competitions in New York, San Francisco, and Europe. Our name… Onilikan, is derived from the ancient language of the Aztec people. “Onili” means liquor and “Kan” means place – and together when translated – Onilikan is “Place of Liquor.“ Onilikan is located in Mazatlan, Mexico, known as “The Pearl of the Pacific”.

Production –To create this unique small-batch liqueur, we use only the finest regionally grown blue agave.

At the same time we distill a clean blue agave spirit (Onilikan Blue Agave Aguardiente or Spirit), then we put the cooked agave piñas into the distilled agave spirit and through a process of extraction, the best flavors are slowly concentrated in the alcohol.
