Quechol Sotol is a spirit that has a distinct flavor profile and fascinating backstory.

While tequila and mezcal often steal the spotlight when it comes to Mexican spirits, Sotol remains relatively undiscovered by many outside of its region of origin. Quechol Sotol is derived from the Dasylirion plant, also known as the Desert Spoon or sotol plant. Its taste is as distinctive as its origins.

Unfamiliar with Quechol Sotol? Sotol is a non-agave-based distillate made from a native Mexican shrub, Dasylirion.

Wheeleri and Texanum are both aged on an average of 15 years in small batches.

Family owned and operated in a 100% solar-powered facility, Quechol Sotol is made using time-honored traditions that are passed down from one generation of sotolero to the next, producing the following expressions:

  • Quechol Texanum Sotol (SRP $60; 46.3% abv) – 100% Texanum Sotol. Succulent aromas of wild spearmint, roasted nuts, ancho chile and cooked caramel lead into a round, elegant palate of juicy black licorice and subtle vegetal character.
  • Quechol Wheeleri Sotol (SRP $60; 45.5% abv) – 100% Wheeleri Sotol. Bright vegetal aromas of lemon rind, bay leaf and chipotle lead into fresh jalapeno on the palate, balanced with delicate sweet black licorice and anise that lead into a long, spicy finish.
