Continuing with our culinary classes, we would like to introduce you the host!

Yes it is an alcoholic drink, rarely drunk in cocktails and usually drunk straight, shot by shot.
Aguardiente or firewater is an anise-flavoured liqueur derived from sugarcane. It has 24%–29% alcohol content and it is your friendly host in almost every party.

Aguardiente has been present in the Andean regions of Colombia since the Spanish era and is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages now days.

It’s common for Aguardiente to be served as a shot, along with a slice of orange or a glass of water.

And we always say “Salud

Little Paisa Town in Medellin, Colombia is a Tourist site you cannot miss when visiting the City of the eternal spring.

Located on top of an 80m-tall hill known as Cerro Nutibara, “El Pueblito Paisa” depicts a typical town in the early twentieth century.

It is a town replica with entire buildings: a chapel, a school, city hall, the priest house, liquor shop, barbershop, apothecary, craft shop and a 2 story house. Every building is a museum and part of the Colombian history.
