About this sotol
Marfa Spirits Co. Chihuahuan Desert Sotol is a collaboration between Jacobo Jacquez, a sixth-generation sotol producer, and the Marfa Spirits Co. This release is grown, harvested, cooked, fermented, and distilled in Mexico. Production takes places at the Jacquez family viñata in Janos, Chihuahua, Mexico. 15-year-old Dasylirion leiophyllum plants are cooked in an earthen underground oven. Next, they are cored and chipped into pine fermentation vats with water added and fermented using natural yeast. The result is twice distilled in copper pot stills with the bagasse in the first distillation.
Marfa Spirits Co.
The Marfa Spirit Co. is the first and only distillery (as of 2022) in Marfa, Texas. It was founded by entrepreneurs Josh Shepard, Seth Siegel-Gardner, and Morgan Weber. Their debut product was Chihuahuan Desert Sotol in October 2021 – a collaboration with Sotol Don Celso in Janos, Mexico. The company also produces gin, rum, vodka, and citrus liqueurs.
