Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol

http://www.sotol.com/

Sotol is an extraordinary spirit, made from dasylirion plants from the Agavacea family, with its own Denomination of Origin since 2002, highly valued for over 800 years for its rich flavors. Our sotols are made from Dasylirion wheeleri that take 15 years or more to mature, and are wild-harvested from the Chihuahuan Desert of Northern Mexico. From there, master distiller José Daumas Gil de Partearroyo, who received his enology education in France and who worked with Martell, Larsen & Moet-Chandon, meticulously oversees our state of the art production process: slow steam-cooking the wild-harvested plants, naturally fermenting them with champagne yeast, and distillation in a double-column copper still. It takes one whole plant to produce a bottle of our USDA Organic and Kosher-certified Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol.

Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol Plata

Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol Plata

SKU BC: 890962
SKU AB: 318469
Case configuration: 6x750mL

100% wild-harvested Agavaceae (Dasylirion wheeleri), 38% ABV. Paul Pacult/SPIRIT JOURNAL:“This zesty aroma is invitingly minty and “green” in a vegetal sense; aeration time of seven minutes expands the aromatic theme in a minor way as the mintiness morphs into a desert-like dryness that’s equal parts vegetation and arid earth.”

Awards & Accolades: Wine Enthusiast: Very Good / Recommended. “The bouquet is pleasantly minty and vegetal. The palate entry is clean and focused; the midpalate displays a delicate touch of agave sugar sweetness... Concludes dry, vegetal and earthy.”

Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol Reposado

SKU BC: 613927
SKU AB: 760757
Case configuration: 6x750mL

100% wild-harvested Agavaceae (Dasylirion wheeleri), 38% ABV, aged 6-12 months in new French oak. Paul Pacult/SPIRIT JOURNAL: "The bouquet opens up in an alluring fashion, more floral than vegetal, more vanilla-like than spicy – the middle stage passes see no diminishment in aromatic strength as the vanilla/oaky scent deepens and the flowery aspect drifts away – the final nosing is one of harmony and stately elegance… there’s a genuine understated complexity to it that many tequilas don’t possess – intriguingly different; on palate, the entry flavor is lush, almost regal as gentle, but deceptively characterful tastes of wood and dried fruit greet the taste buds – the mid-palate turns more appropriately vegetal in an agave-like manner, complete with mild notes of pepper and soft dill; the aftertaste borders on being luxurious as long, deep flavors of sweet pepper and vanilla/oak enchant the palate;… to its immense credit, it does offer an alternative to tequila that’s simultaneously complex and elegant.”

SKU BC:
SKU AB: 760749
Case configuration: 6x750mL

100% wild-harvested Agavaceae (Dasylirion wheeleri), 38% ABV. For our Oro Puro, we take our two-year, single French Oak barrel-aged Añejo and bottle it with 24 karat gold flakes for enhanced smoothness and texture. Like our Añejo, each bottle is unique because its taste comes from a single numbered barrel, and our master distiller hand-numbers each one. Buttery and intense on the nose with subsidiary notes of molasses, custard and spice alongside herbaceous aromas typical of sotol. On the palate it is rich and oaked, with plenty of deep fruits, tangy apricot flavours and floral notes, followed by a long and tannic finish.

100% wild-harvested Agavaceae (Dasylirion wheeleri), 38% ABV, aged five years in a new French oak barrel. Embodying the crown jewel of the Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol family, this fascinating spirit is fermented with champagne yeast and aged in new french white oak barrels for at least 5 years, providing extraordinary richness and decadence in its unique aromas and flavors, and its dark, amber color. Big caramel nose with hint of berries and dark chocolate, initial tastes of cooked agave, caramel and oak. As the experience continues in the mouth, a nice, thick anejo body becomes apparent, with hints of agave and brown spices. Oak and chocolate become much more prominent, before a nice long finish with oak notes and a big lingering flavor of dark chocolate like that of a 60%+ cocoa bar. Extremely smooth and easy to drink.
