Flor Del Desierto Sierra Sotol: A Wild Taste of Chihuahua's High Desert

Hailing from the rugged Sierra Madre mountains, Flor Del Desierto's Sierra Sotol encapsulates the bold, untamed spirit of Chihuahua's high desert in liquid form. This remarkable spirit is handcrafted by fifth-generation Maestro Sotolero José "Chito" Fernandez Flores from 100% wild-harvested Dasylirion Wheeleri Sereque.

Each piña used is a survivor, sustainably gathered only after thriving for 18-22 years amidst the Sierra's harsh conditions and thin alpine air. Using centuries-old techniques, the mature desert spoon plants are slowly roasted for days in a shallow willow and oak pit oven, allowing their inimitable flavors to concentrate.

The roasted hearts are meticulously crushed - first by axe, then by knife - before being left to ferment for seven days in pine wood tanks naturally. This nutrient-rich mash is carefully double-distilled in traditional alembic copper stills to preserve its vivid character.

The resulting spirit vividly expresses the high Sierras, clocking in at 48% ABV. The aroma alone transports you to Chihuahua's alpine peaks, with notes of desert herbs, wet earth, smoke, and stone fruits. One sip unveils layers of profound flavors - roasted agave, black pepper, salinity, and hints of tropical fruit.

Despite its ruggedly bold persona, Sierra Sotol is remarkably smooth and elegant on the palate. Its endlessly evolving finish is composed of dry mesquite smoke, spice, and lingering mineral notes.

This true desert spirit captures the indomitable essence of the Sierra Madre mountains. Sip Flor Del Desierto's Sierra Sotol to transport your senses on a transcendent journey across Chihuahua's high-altitude wilderness. For the discerning agave lover, it represents the pinnacle of tradition and terroir.

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.
