Sotol is made from the Dasylirian plant or desert spoon. There are 16 varietals of sotol. The sotol plant is found throughout Mexico but the denomination of origin for sotol dictates that to be labeled a sotol it must come from 1 of 3 states: Chihuahua, Coahuila and Durango.
The Leiophyllum has notes of wet soil and ash with a palate that is meaty with tones of salami. The finish gets fruity with peaches and bananas.
