The company works with a group of indigenous women high in the Ecuadorian Andes who maintain their ancestral traditions of harvesting and preparing this ancient spirit. The sweet sap that is extracted from the agave once it reaches 12 years of age. Andean Spirits buys the sap of the cooperative at fair prices and distills it into Miske at a distillery outside the city of Quito, Ecuador.
