About this sotol

Balam Sotol Durango is made with Dasylirion Wheeleri in Peñón Blanco, Durango. This sotol is produced by Sotolero Jesus Roman. The plants are cooked in a wood-burning oven, milled by hand, and double distilled in a copper/steel pot still.


Balam Raicilla and Sotol was launched in 2016 by Xavier Villagran. He has taken careful consideration to find raicilleros that were previously not commercializing their raicilla, which has a reputation of being the moonshine of Mexico. Balam was the second brand of raicilla to legally enter the United States market. Villagrán sources artisanal spirits: mezcals in Oaxaca, raicilla in each of the three distilling regions of Jalisco (costa, sierra, llano), sotols from Chihuahua and Durango, and the rare churique from the tiny agave lechugilla.
