Lamata Cucharilla is a sotol produced by Lázaro Monjaraz in Yutanduchi de Guerrero, a traditional Mixtec community located about four hours from Oaxaca City. Lázaro, also known as "Hacha," comes from a family with a long tradition of mezcal production. His wife Catalina manages the fermentation and distillation process while Hacha works the countryside, cutting agave and arranging the oven.

The sotol is made using dasylirion serratifolium, a plant species that can reach over 100 years of age and has decorative and culinary uses in addition to being used for distillation. After the plants are cooked underground, they are hand mashed using a mallet and machete. The cooked and smashed agave is then fermented in food-grade plastic bins with spring water. It is distilled in a clay and steel hybrid pot, with the bottom half made of steel for added durability. The proof is adjusted using heads and tails.

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.
