About this sotol

Lamata Sotol Chihuahua from Lupe López (Lulo) is produced in Madera, Chihuahua, Mexico. This is made with Dasylirion wheeleri. These sotol plants are cooked in a traditional earthen pit oven. They are milled by hand using a small axe and fermented with natural yeasts and spring water. They are distilled twice in a hybrid copper & wood pot still.


Lamata (formerly named Amormata) is the for-export label of Nacion de Las Verdes Matas, a small unregistered brand started by Luis Loya many years ago. His goal is to share mezcal from Northern Mexico from places that are under-represented in the market. Luis has relationships with producers in Durango, Nuevo Leon, Sonora, Chihuahua, San Luis Potosi and Tamaulipas among others.

The typical lot sizes of Amormata releases range from about 40 liters to 200 liters. The producers will continue to make about the same amount of spirits that they historically have in the past. Therefore, the brand will not bottle much more than a total of three to five thousand liters per year. Amormata is dedicated to promoting the “gusto historico”, the terroir, the liquid culture, and the history that is mezcal to people beyond the borders of the places where it is made.

This review is just an impression of a small pour from a big Lamata tasting. No bottle info. Will update if I try again.

Review #130: evergreen, mint, pine, gasoline, grass, wax, juniper

This was kind of gin-like with the botanical flavors all going on. I found it interesting but wasn’t a big fan of it, but others around me did like it more.
