In the Sierra Madre Occidental of Chihuahua lies the rustic outpost of Madera: an ancient mining town. In Madera, Sotol has been distilled for centuries following a specific methodology and using a blend of their local grown plants of Sotol 'Sereque' and Agave 'Churique'. The flavor is herbal in a quasi-floral way, imparted by the musky terroir of the lush mountain forest. For this variety, Cardenxe champions tradition, following the ancient production methods with a slight twist: our Sotol de La Sierra is distilled from 100% Sotol.
The result: a sublime explosion on the palate, and a unique potential for an eccentric cocktail recipe.
Subtle floral notes of eucalyptus, moss & nuts fill the palate, transforming into a vigorous grassy aftertaste that evokes the high altitude forests where the sotol plants grow. A unique flavor that is quite hard to unravel… although the local producers would say “esto es puro Sotol!”
