Siglo Cero was founded with two goals in mind: preserving the ancient tradition of pox distillation and sharing a small portion of the rich Mayan culture with the rest of the world. They are focused on providing the highest quality pox on the market, using the original recipe, which has been used for centuries in Chiapas, Mexico. Pox is a traditional spirit with roots in the rich Mayan culture of the southern Mexican state of Chiapas. The mystical drink is produced from four native corns, wheat, and sugarcane. In the Mayan language, Tzotzil, pox means “medecine” or “healing”. It was used by ancient Mayans in a ceremonial manner, and considered to be a natural elixir.
Their logo represents the fusion of three sacred Mayan birds: the eagle, the quetzal, and the owl. The bold colors embody the beautiful landscapes, clothing, houses and people found in Chiapas.
