Meet the Maker
Produced with wild sotol plants by third-generation Maestro Sotolero Edmundo Juarez on his apple orchard in the foothills of the 2,000 person town of Bachiniva, Chihuahua.
Edmundo is a renaissance man. He runs the family farm, distills inventive spirits, and is a professor of food and agricultural science at the Research Center in Food & Development (Centro de Investigación en Alimentación y Desarrollo). He doesn't always drink beer, but when he does, it's with Guerra Seca Sotol.
Aroma: Citrus, floral and mineral,
with notes of almond, black pepper, tobacco and cinnamon
Taste: An initial flavor of lightly smoked meat followed by a cinnamon, woody and tobacco middle, and ending with fresh, floral and mint notes

After the first distillation in a stainless steel alembic pot still, Edmundo lines the same still with clay and rests the distillate in that clay-lined pot for 2 weeks.
Keeping the clay in the still, Edmundo then runs the still a second time, producing a sotol closer in taste to the way sotol was enjoyed for hundreds of years using fragile clay pot stills.
The mineral-rich distillation runoff is filtered and applied to soil near growing sotol plants to increase future yields and reduce waste.
