About this sotol
La Niña del Mezcal Sotol is produced in small batches by Maestro Sotolero Gerardo Ruelas with Dasylirion Cedrosanum plants from the region of Sierra del Diablo. The piñas are roasted in a stone-lined underground oven using walnut wood, naturally fermented in open-air pine vats, and double-distilled in copper pot stills. This sotol has notes of grapefruit, fresh jalapeño, walnut, and lavender. Despite the higher proof, the texture is soft and inviting.
La Niña del Mezcal
Cecilia Rios Murrieta is a freelance writer and founded La Niña del Mezcal, a company that promotes awareness of artisan mezcal in order to preserve the traditional production processes and position it as a premium spirit in international markets. Her passion for mezcal led her to pursue certification as a Mezcalier, and later to establish one of the first blogs about Mezcal and the culture that surrounds it. For years, she served as the proud owner of this Mezcal line from Oaxaca and she shared her knowledge about the spirit through tastings and pairings, while creating alliances with other Mexican artisanal producers. Listen to Cecelia talk about her mezcal here: KCRW’s Good Food – Cecilia Rios Murrieta: La Niña del Mezcal .
In March 2018, founder Cecilia Rios Murrieta retired from the La Niña brand to work on other projects, including launching a new spirits brand, Ōme Spirits.
