Introducing Hacienda de Chihuahua

Copper Canyon, Chihuahua Mexico

This scenic wonder is the Copper Canyon, 8 times bigger than the Grand Canyon, located in Chihuahua, the largest state in Mexico. Bordering Texas and New Mexico it encompasses an area of 150,000 square miles and is Mexico's leading producer of Apples, Pecans, Jalapenos and…Sotol?

Like its cousins, Tequila and Mezcal, Sotol has its own denomination of origin.

Sotol, Mezcal and Tequila are all made from the agave (agavacea) plant. Tequila is made only from the Blue Weber agave. Mezcal can be made from a larger variety, the most popular being Espadin and Tobala. Sotol is only made from the agave grown in Chihuahua State.

The Sotol agaves grow wild in the harsh Chihuahua terrain and are smaller than most agaves, yielding an unique rich character with exceptional taste.

Introducing Hacienda de Chihuahua Super Premium Sotol Reposado.

Hacienda de Chihuahua Super Premium Sotol Reposado

The pride of Jose Daumas Gil de Partearroyo, Master Distiller, “Hacienda de Chihuahua” is 100% wild harvested, slow-steam cooked, naturally fermented (with champagne yeasts), double distilled and aged in new French Oak casks from Limoge, France. Its low 76 proof enhances the product’s mixability. The product is 100% pure and organic and packaged in handmade bottling.

Mr. Dauman boasts a Masters Degree in Enology from the prestigious Ecole Nationale Superieure Agronomique in Montpellier, France and has worked with such acclaimed spirits as Cognac Larsen, Moet & Chandon and Casa Martell.

Paul Pacult of the Spirit Journal noted “this I would buy and keep in the Spirit Journal’s liquor vault. To its immense credit, it does offer an alternative to Tequila that’s simultaneously complex and elegant.”

Hacienda de Chihuahua is also available as añejo, which is aged 2 years and triple distilled for extra smoothness. Their new Super-Premium Plata, which provides the most genuine taste of this exquisite-fresh wild harvested agavacea only found in the Chihuahuan Desert, is beautifully packaged in a clean upscale presentation.
