This rare spirit is similar to the mescal-type drinks of other parts of Mexico, but this one is produced from the core parts of the stem of the desert plant, Dasylirion wheeleri. 38DC0ECADZ6FM3CA0K6W4RCADER0VFCA9ZF4VYCANUB3DXCAQVJAXLCAWLPUZRCA9AI4IZCADJHWMTCA9RTGSGCA8Y4489CAX059YGCAHGYZ2BCAA02UFACAL1RJLICAIZO0DLCAFUNRMPCARDKPRYCABBPQZX

This stuff is delicious…no hangover and a smooth taste….much preferred over Tequilla.

Our culinary trips will feature a stop at the sotol production near the little town of Janos, not far from St Teresa, New Mexico.

More about this production area and Celso at Don Cuco later.
