Appearance: Pristine to the sight with a silver hue
Aroma: Complex, herbaceous and spiced with hints of fresh green asparagus and white peppercorns. Its elegant nuance is reminiscent of damp earth and tubers like the Yam bean and yuca in a fresh herbal frame such as epazote and avocado leaf
Palate: In the palate, it feels fresh and joyful. A smooth texture follows a fruity mid-palate of guava, coconut and ginger.
Finish: Dry and long, very complex in spices and minerals
Flor del Desierto Sotol – Ono
Have a Question?
Sotol Onó is made with Dasylirion Cedrosanum, which takes 12 to 15 years to reach maturity in the wild. The sotol are pulled out of the earth with axes, and the spiny leaves are cut from the piñas to transport to the Vinata. Once in the Vinata, Maestro Gerardo Ruelas roasts the piñas for about 3 days, then grinds them by hand using axes and knives. The plants then ferment for 5 and 7 days, depending on the weather, before being distilled.
