Xanath, meaning ‘vanilla’ or ‘vanilla flower’ in the Totonac language, is an all-natural liqueur containing pure vanilla and absolutely no artificial ingredients. The origins of vanilla, originally from the Gulf coast region of Mexico, can be traced back to the Itzcoalt kingdom (1427-1440).
It was originally called ‘black flower’ and it was the Totonacs Indians who later called it ¨Xanath ¨. The Gaya family, who invented Xanath Vanilla Liqueur and continue to produce it to this day, have been involved in vanilla production in the Veracruz area of Mexico since 1873.
Xanath Vanilla Liqueur is a handcrafted nectar obtained from the best vanilla beans found in the region of Totonacapan.
The traditional harvesting methods achieve a unique flavour and maintain the delicate bouquet. Xanath, pronounced “sha-nat”, is presented in an elegant black bottle inspired by the Totonac culture, rendering a tribute to the honour and distinction of its origins.
