Flor del Desierto – Desierto

Desert flower and a gentlemans spirit

Flor del Desierto Sotol Desierto is the first variety of sotol from Flor del Desierto. It is made by maestro Sotolero: Gerardo Ruelas out of Coyame del Sotol in Chihuahua.Flor del Desierto Sotol Desierto is made 100% from wild Harvested Dasylirion Leiophyllum (Sereque). This wonderful plant takes 18 to 22 years to mature so a certain respect is required when you put your lips to the glass. This spirit may have started its life before you were even born.

Tasting Notes

Flor del Desierto is crystal clear with silver hues. Shaking the bottle gives a little bubbles and fine slow trickling down the sides of the bottle.
The tasting profile gives notes of wet soil, roasted agave and fine lemongrass and lemon citrus background. It is surprisingly smooth sip with ripe fruit and earthy hints.

The aromas are reminiscent of sweet spices, citrus and minerals.


Flor del Desierto has four varieties of sotol: Cedrosanum, Leiophyllum, Texanum, Wheeleri. Just like the agaves used in Mezcal, the Daisilirion has a number of subvarieties which grow in different regions. This “Desierto” is made from Dasylirion Leiophyllum which gives us the elegant and refined complex notes. Sotol of this calibre is not as sweet as tequila can be and not as smoky and strong as Mezcal can be.

It is somehow the best of both worlds with a mind of its own.
