Description

Sotol Onó is made from 100 % Dasylirion Cedrosanum and only one bottle can be distilled from a single piña. It is handcrafted in Aldama, Chihuahua by Gerardo Ruelas who is a third generation Maestro Sotolero part of a family that has produced Sotol in the state of Chihuahua for decades.
Sotol has been made for more than 800 years by Rarámuris and Anasazis (native ethnic people from Chihuahua) and it was a spirit almost forgotten. Sotol is a distilled spirit made from Dasylirion (commonly named Sereque in Chihuahua).  As part of the Nolinaceae family it grows along the North of México and the Southwest of the USA including Texas. This plant resists the extreme dessert weather with high temperatures and dryness, and typically grows on rocky slopes in the Chihuahuan desert grassland between 3,000 and 6,500 feet above sea level. The Dasylirion is actually related to onions and garlic plants, and it is not an actual agave but a Yuca, this is why it has such a unique flavor. Dasylirion Cedrosanum takes about 12 to 15 years to be ready and it is a wild harvest. The jimador is the one responsible of choosing the Mata or head of the sotol plant, he makes sure the plant is mature and ready to harvest, he knows they are ready to harvest because the plant starts exuding a substance similar to syrup or honey. They pull out the plant from the earth with axes, they proceed to cut the spiny leaves of leaving only the Piñas ready to transport to the Vinata.
Once in the Vinata, they roast the piñas for about 3 days, then they grind them using axes and knifes, the next step is the fermentation, this lasts between 5 and 7 days, depending on the weather.

Сотол Onó се произвежда от 100% Dasylirion Cedrosanum и от една пиня може да бъде направена само една бутилка. Приготвя се изцяло ръчно в Алдама, Чиуауа от Gerardo Ruelas, който е трето поколение Maestro Sotolero член на семейство, което е произвеждало сотол десетилетия.
