About this mezcal

This authentic small batch Sotol was distilled by Don Eduardo Arrieta in Chorreras, Chihuahua. Using wild Dasylirion Leiophyllum, Don Eduardo roasts the sotol plants in conical pits and then grinds by axe. Next, the sotol is fermented with wild yeast and distilled in copper stills. The batches are extremely small, for example an April 2016 batch was only 99 liters.

Clande Sotol

Clande Sotol is a brand that celebrates the art and tradition of craft spirits. Clandestine distilleries used to be found in Northern Mexico and were known as “vinatas.” These facilities were used to produced both Sotol (from Dasylirion) and Lechuguilla (from Agave). Vinatas were prohibited in the early 1900s and Maestro Sotoleros were persecuted and sometimes incarcerated. Sotol Clande represents sotol from different regions and delivers the impact of terroir on this beautiful spirit. The project seeks to support small local producers and improve their standard of living, as well as protect the future of the Dasylirion plant.
