Don Cuco Sotol Suave – Elaboradora De Sotol S. de R.I.


This sotol is produced in Chihuahua, the traditional area for sotol. Sotol is the state drink ofChihuahua and has its own NOM ( the Mexican government version of appellation) The plant sotol, or dasylirion wheeler is found abundantly in Northern Mexico and also in the Southwest of the United States (mainly used for landscaping due to its little need for water). It takes about 5-7 years for a sotol plant to reach maturity and 1 plant yields roughly 1 bottle of sotol. So this will never be a really mass produced product or commonly available. They wildcraft the sotol and every part is used for something. The stalk is made into walking sticks and the kiote (fibers) can be woven into baskets.

Made in the traditional, artisanal manner unlike some of their competition . The entire process takes about 7-10 days depending on the weather and temperature as they first first must cook the pinãs in lave rock lined oven pits, crush them then slowly ferment them until they can be distilled.
