Oggun is a premium Aguardiente that is available in a 151 proof and in a 100 proof. This is a huge brand in the latin community and highly consumed.
Aguardiente translates to fire water, which most Americans now nicknamed whiskey, so let’s take that comparison but instead of whiskey you have a sugarcane liquor similar to rum but stronger and not as sweet.
Aguardiente is no joke when it comes to ABV, the range can be anywhere from that contain between 29% and 60%. The strength comes from the distillation and fermentation of sugared or sweet musts, vegetable macerations, or combinations of the two. Of course, that is as basic as we can get, and therefore you know what’s coming- many variations. The most common one to describe Colombian Aguardiente is anise flavored.
