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 natural spring water. Then hand-milled in the 1st stage by axe, 2nd stage by knife. Fermentation occurs over 5 to 7 days in 1000 L pinewood tanks. Once complete, distillation is done twice in copper stills. An average bottling run is 1,000 bottles.
