About this sotol
Puntagave Rustico Sotol is produced from wild-harvested desert spoon in the Chihuahuan Desert of Northern Mexico. Maturing for 15-years on the mountainsides, the plants store vast amounts of natural energy before they are harvested. José Daumas “Pepe”, who received his Master’s degree in enology at the world renowned École Nationale Supérieure Agronomique de Montpellier, France and whose résumé includes a plethora of well-respected brands such as Martell, Larsen & Moet Chandon, meticulously oversees a state of the art production process which starts by slow steam cooking the wild-harvested plants, natural fermentation with champagne yeast, and distilled in a double-column copper still.
Puntagave Artisanal produces ultra-premium tequila and mezcal. The company possesses a proprietary “Consistency of Character” through an extraordinary blend and “engineered process.” This process is achieved by the 2nd certified Maestro tequilero in the world, Guillermo Barroso Arnaud. His endeavor to produce the ultimate taste profile involved producing, experimenting, and revising up to 52 batches to get to the desired tasting profile. The mindset is to produce the truest form of Tequila and Mezcal, emphasizing on a high-agave taste profile, even in the aged expression.
Puntagave Rustico is a line of microclimate, terroir-driven spirits of Mexico. The brand focuses on a “complexity of character” rather than the “consistency of characters.” Every controlled denomination of Puntagave Rustico is a unique product of a specific origin, micro-climate, time, and method of production. Older bottles were labeled under the brand name Colectivo Regional instead of Puntagave.
