Sotoleros, Lalo Y Nado, Sotol Lot 1 (Mexico) 750ML
Producer Notes: A new brand from the infamous co-founder of Clande Sotol, Sotoleros spotlights small regional distillers at viñatas across Chihuahua. Sourcing microbatch distillates of both sotol (Dasylirion) and lechuguilla (Agave) as well as the occasional blend of both – an otherwise lost tradition rarely seen within the commercial category – Sotoleros helps producers to maintain traditional production techniques on an intensely small scale, with releases rarely exceeding 70 bottles.
Produced by Don Eduardo Arrieta (Lalo) and his apprentice Fernando Porras (Nando), in Chorreras, Chihuahua, this offering made from local wild Dasylirion leiophyllum, cooked in an underground earthen oven using mesquite wood. The cooked plants are milled by hand using axe and machete, fermented in wooden vats (“tinas”), and distilled twice in traditional wood-fired copper pot stills. The resulting spirit is rich and mellow, with notes of leather, cacao, dried chili pepper, and saffron.
