Cascabel Sotol 48.0% ABV - The Venomous Spirit of the Desert

Origin: Coyame del Sotol, Chihuahua, Mexico

An authentic taste of Mexico's high desert, Cascabel Sotol is crafted from wild-harvested Dasylirion Leiophyllum plants aged 18-22 years before harvest. The hearts are slowly roasted in a traditional willow and oak pit oven, imparting rich, earthy notes.

This venerable spirit undergoes an ancient triple distillation process called "pechuga," in which rattlesnake meat is suspended in a copper still, contributing a faint briny minerality.

The distillate matures for 90 days in 40-year-old neutral oak casks previously used to age straight American whiskey from Juarez. This unique barrel aging delivers unparalleled smoothness and complexity.

Under the watchful eye of legendary Master Sotelier Don Gerardo Ruelas, each batch captures the rugged essence of the Chihuahuan Desert. Savor the deep flavors of this one-of-a-kind sotol - the spirit with a venomous bite.

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.
