About this sotol

Flor del Desierto Desert is made by third-generation producer Gerardo Ruelas in Coyame del Sotol, Chihuahua from the Dasylirion Leiophyllum plant. The sotols are cooked in shallow pits fueled by oak firewood, shredded by axe and knife, open-air fermented in below-ground tanks, and double-distilled in copper pot stills. It is savory with notes of sage smoke and leather along with an underlying salinity and finish of black peppercorn.

Flor del Desierto Sotol

Flor del Desierto began in 2011 by a small group of friends after one of them, Flor, won a baking competition using sotol as the special ingredient. All sotol plants, also known as the desert spoon or sereque, are wild-harvested in the Coyame Desert and mountains of Madera. Each one of Flor del Desierto's Sotols are distinguished by the region they’re produced in, the stills where they are distilled and the hands of each sotol maker, whose own techniques and years of experience give their spirits a unique character.

Woody, little earthy, definitely different not agave. A lot less sweet.

Flor del Desierto, Desierto. Batch 001 , bottle 526.

Amazing trio of sotol sweetness, minerality, and smoke. Tons of dried porks, ground coffees, hazelnut, dried orange, lavender. White chocolate and fresh tobacco, cumin, thyme, pecan, soft black pepper, green apple peel. On the palette, it hits soft, floral, with great minerality. Spicy nuts tingle on the edges of the palette. Leaves tongue refreshed, with herbal tints.

Wonderfully delcious with great typicity. Almost tempted to give another star.
