About this sotol
Origen Raiz Sotol is made with Dasylirion cedrosanum by maestro mezcalero Valentin Cortes. Don Valentin lives in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca where he produces almost all of his mezcal and other distillates. He produced this Sotol, however, at the El Ojo vinata in Tuitan, Durango. The wild Dasylirion cedrosanum was harvested from the volcanic valley of Maika of Nombre de Dios, deep in the heart of the Durango Mountains.
Origen Raiz del Espiritu Mezcal
Origen Raíz is a partnership between two distinct sets of Mexican roots. The Saravia family of Durango has a long history of working to improve the local economy through business, and the Cortés family of Oaxaca brings six generations of knowledge in mezcal production. The families were brought together by their sons, Asis Cortés and Bildo Saravia, through passion for their culture and respect for their heritage. Asis is well known for some of his other projects like Mezcal Dixeebe, and he was previously involved with his family's other brands of Oaxacan-based mezcal: El Jolgorio, Nuestra Soledad, and Agave de Cortes. The family also operates a mezcaleria named Mezcalogia and Asis has a restaurant named Puro Burro in Oaxaca City.
