La Higuera Sotol Cedrosanum, crafted by Master Sotolero Gerardo Ruelas in Aldama, Chihuahua, is a premium spirit embodying traditional sotol production's essence. This artisanal beverage undergoes a meticulous process to ensure the highest quality and capture the region's unique flavors.

To create Cedrosanum, mature sotol plants are carefully selected and cooked in an outdoor conical oven, using wood and rocks as fuel. The cooked plants are then milled by hand using axes, preserving the authenticity of the craftsmanship. The resulting fibers are naturally fermented in large 1,000-liter pine vats, where wild yeasts work their magic, contributing to the complex flavor profile.

After fermentation, the sotol is double distilled in copper alembic stills, a method that allows for the separation and purification of the spirit. This traditional distillation process further refines the flavors, enhancing the overall quality of the final product.

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.
