The Marfa Spirit Co. launched its debut product: Chihuahuan Desert Sotol. Distilled from a plant growing wild in forest and desert climates throughout Mexico and the Western United States, sotol can be uniquely diverse and regionally specific, the company notes. Chihuahuan Desert Sotol, which is distilled in Mexico and then processed and bottled inside Marfa’s 1920s era Godbold Feed Mill-turned-distillery, is herbaceous and earthy, with hints of white pepper and a crisp, bright finish, the company says. Crafted in collaboration with Sotol Don Celso in Janos, Mexico, Chihuahuan Desert Sotol pays homage to the history of the distillery’s hometown of Marfa, while also carrying on the legacy of Mexico’s celebrated sotol industry and the sotoleros who make it possible, it adds. Each 1-liter bottle of Desert Sotol has a 45% ABV and is available to purchase online for $48-55. Store locators can be found by visiting the company’s website.
