Not technically an agave spirit (but grouped with them for convenience), Sotol is produced from the flowering plants of the Genus Dasylirion, in the asparagus family. This Higuera Sotol is distilled from Dasylirion Leiophyllum in the state of Chihuahua. The core (piña) is harvested from wild plants around 15 years of age, and roasted over hard wood in an adobe oven. The roasted piñas are then ground by hand and fermented with ambient yeast in open top pine vats. Twice distilled in a copper alembic still.Sweet clover on the nose, with fresh mint, wet slate and serrano pepper. Intriguing. Rich texture in the mouth, grassy, basil, ginger, black pepper. Serious stuff.
