La Higuera is a range of sotol, the traditional spirit of Northern Mexico, made in the town of Aldama, by Gerardo Ruelas – a fifth generation Sotol producer. Made from the Dasylirion plant, known as “sotol” in Mexico, it is a close relative of agave.
La Higuera showcases the diversity of sotol, with each expression made from a different variety of Dasylirion such as wheeleri and cedrosanum, each offering unique flavour profiles.
La Higuera employs only traditional production methods dating back hundreds of years, roasting the sotol hearts in traditional earthen pits, fermenting naturally with wild yeast in wooden vats and double distilling in small copper pot stills.
The spirit is kept pure and undiluted after distillation, and has a fresh and vibrant taste profile with a subtle smokiness that is not as heavy as mezcal.
