Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol
Puntagave Rustico Sotol is produced from wild-harvested desert spoon in the Chihuahuan Desert of Northern Mexico. Maturing for 15-years on the mountainsides, the plants store vast amounts of natural energy before they are harvested. José Daumas “Pepe”, who received his Master’s degree in enology at the world renowned École Nationale Supérieure Agronomique de Montpellier, France and whose résumé includes a plethora of well-respected brands such as Martell, Larsen & Moet Chandon, meticulously oversees a state of the art production process which starts by slow steam cooking the wild-harvested plants, natural fermentation with champagne yeast, and distilled in a double-column copper still.
Decent smokiness relative to other Sotol, with a pleasant earthy and mineral character. I‚Äôd buy this one again.
