With inspiration from the region’s native coyotes, these sotols are made from wild agaves that are hand harvested after maturing in an organic setting — they can take up to 15 years for full maturation. The resulting plants are cooked in underground clay ovens before being hand-ground and eventually distilled on a homemade copper pot-still. At no point in the process are any colorants or additives used.

Tasting Notes

"This wild spirit has a fairly intense nose of cantaloupe, iodine, green grass, and a wisp of smoke. The palate is mineral and densely structured but carries its high ABV with an admirable amount of grace. There is a bit of a fibrous, earthy flavor that builds up before untangling to a long, moderately spicy finish. Certainly a delicious sipping spirit that shows the intense nature of the desert from which it comes. "
