Called the Food of the Gods, cacao has long been celebrated for its positive effects on health and happiness. The feel good benefits of cacao come from an abundance of stimulants like theobromine, a natural mood enhancer known to promote feelings of bliss.
Scientists ascribe the aphrodisiacal qualities of cacao to two chemical components: Tryptophan, an amino acid that converts into serotonin, a brain chemical involved in sexual arousal; and phenylethylamine (PEA), a stimulant that is released in the brain when people fall in love.
For centuries, the peoples of Mesoamerica consumed cacao beverages inpreparation for battle and more amorous conquests. The Aztec ruler Montezuma is said to have consumed copious amounts of this famed beverage before embarking on hismany romantic trysts.
The original drink - xocolatl or "bitter water" - was a fermented mash prepared for the ruling elite. Through modern distillation techniques, Solbeso has transformed this noble beverage into a sublime spirit that’s uniquely flavorful and incredibly smooth.
