Product Description

Flor Del Desierto embraces 100% artisanal and organic practices to create these small batches of extraordinary sotol. The 100% Wild Harvested Dasylirion Leiophyllum (Sereque) is harvested at an altitude of 4000 Ft. Aged for 3 months in bourbon barrels and finished reposado style with a golden oak colour. The rattlesnake poison is cured and safe to drink. Enjoy the spiritual and healing properties of the non-poisonous rattlesnake venom the indigenous inhabitants of the northern regions of Mexico have been using for centuries.

Smells Like

Soft on the nose, with light notes of wet soil and cactus roots but a sweetness of dates and nuts familiar with the arid regions in northern Mexico

Tastes Like

Light amber in colour, dense and oily, yet an intense attack of smoke, minerality and dried chilli pepper. This “reposado” style finish leaves a white pepper aftertaste on the tongue.

How It Is Made

This beautiful spirit is crafted by Gerardo Ruelas, a 3rd generation Sotolero and producer from the oldest distillery in Chihuahua. Ruelas has been fascinated with sotol and the thrill of discovery from a young age, experimenting with different recipes as he strives to make the perfect sotol.

This Sotol is picked at between 18 to 22 years of age before it is roasted in a shallow pit oven using willow & Oak firewood. The water source is from a natural spring, milling is all done by hand with axes and knives and fermentation occurs over 5 to 7 days in 1000 L pinewood tanks with wild airborne yeast.

Once fermentation has finished, distillation occurs twice, in copper stills which cures the rattlesnake venom at the same time. An average bottling run is 700 bottles. We are honoured to exclusively import and share this brand with Australia.
