About this sotol
Los Cantiles 1905 Palmilla Ensamble is produced by maestro vinatero Jose Luis Portillo, a 4th generation vinatero in the town of Nacori Chico, Sonora. This is made with roughly 70% Palmilla (Dasylirion wheeleri) and 30% maguey Lechuguilla (Agave shrevei). The plants are cooked in a pit oven that is lined with volcanic rock. The plants are cooked with mesquite and oak. They are double distilled in a stainless steel still with a copper serpentine.

The Portillo Family started producing Bacanoras, Lechuguillas and Palmillas back in 1905 when Don Refugio Portillo, Jose Luis Portillo’s great grandfather, founded “Rancho La Nopalera.”
The project includes replanting agaves and promoting Opata Traditions, an ethnic group that is almost extinct. Their bottles are 100% recycled glass, made by hand by artisan workers, promoting economic grow in the region.
