THE BEVERAGE THAT “JOINS HEARTS TOGETHER”

Pox (say “posh”), a Maya beverage that warms and caresses the heart, is a distilled Maya corn-based liquor, with great significance in the Maya culture. It is used in a ceremonial way, but also as a symbol of fraternity in the community. La Poshería, the house of Pox, is the place where it has been respectfully rescued and shared worldwide; we produce it ourselves with the original corn-based recipe. We have 10 varieties: traditional white Pox, ceremonial white Pox, and eight flavors: coffee, coconut, cacao, vanilla, banana, apple, almond, and mango. Come for a free tasting!
