Ono Sotol Artesenal Joven – 70cl

Wild harvested plants for an untamed spirit

Sotol Onó is produced by Maestro Sotolero Gerardo Ruelas. Gerardo Ruelas produces a wide range of sotols under various brands and marks.
Sotol Onó is made with Dasylirion Cedrosanum, which takes 12 to 15 years to reach mature in the open, hot desert landscape. The sotol plants are pulled out of the ground with axes, and the spiny leaves are cut from the piñas. The piñas of the sotol plant are typically smaller and with less juice than those of for instance Blue Agave and Espadin.
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 ferment for 5 -7 days, depending on the weather, before being distilled.
