Carnel Sotol - The Ethereal Masterpiece of the Desert

A rare gem from the Sotol universe, Carnel is a transcendent expression of Mexico's most mystical artisanal spirit. Crafted from wild-harvested Dasylirion wheeleri plants, this pechuga-style sotol undergoes an ancient, sacred production method virtually unchanged for centuries.

The hearts are slowly roasted over smoldering oak embers in a traditional pit oven, concentrating their vegetal essences. After meticulous hand-milling with axes and knives, an unhurried fermentation of up to two weeks extracts every nuance.

The magical alchemy continues as the fermented mash ascends through three sacred distillations in a copper pot still, refining it to its sublime essence. True to the venerable pechuga method, a wild turkey breast is suspended in the still to contribute faint, savory notes.

The result is an otherworldly spirit of profound complexity - at once rustic and ethereal, vegetal and mineral, intense yet elegant. Each sip evokes the austere beauty of the Chihuahuan Desert landscape from whence it came.

Savor Carnel neat or in a contemplative cocktail to experience the masterful handiwork of Mexico's premiere sotelieres. This is sotol at its most magical and transcendent form.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?

Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.

Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.

One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.

Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.

In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
