Chicha Morada is an artisan drink steeped in ancient Peruvian history.
Translated as ‘’Purple Brew’’, The roots of this maize-based soft drink date as far back as the Pre-Inca Empire. It is traditionally made from fermented boiled corn and blended with an array of fruit skins and spices.
At Amaize Drinks we have stayed true to that authentic flavour with a recipe passed down from generations.
Our delicious Chicha Morada cordial is infused with natural botanicals, blended with unrefined sugar, and contains no artificial preservatives, colours, flavours or sweeteners.
Amaize’s modern twist on this ancient classic is as versatile as it is sweet.
Try it with Gin, Rum and Pisco, or experiment with frozen cocktails and ice lollies. You can even serve it as a hot drink in winter.
What it tastes like?
A silky, decadent & unique flavour bursting with pineapple, citrus fruits and spicy cinnamon with a just a subtle hint of caramel.
How to drink it?
Our classic drink is best served chilled with plenty of ice, a slice of lime or lemon and some freshly chopped pineapple. We recommend 100ml Cordial to 250ml of Water.
Purple corn benefits?
“The Purple Corn within Chicha Morada has a high concentration of polyphenols, especially delphinidin which is characterized by interesting antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.”
“There has been a suggestion that this particular polyphenol may be important for vascular health.”
