Sotol distillery Desert Door opened in October 2017 to craft the unique spirit with deep roots in Mexican history and culture (and often referred to as the cousin to mezcal). Desert Door Sotol is distilled from wild-harvested desert spoon plant (”sotol” in Spanish), a spiny plant similar to the yucca found in the West Texas desert. The resulting spirit is vegetal, herbaceous and slightly floral, and it tastes fantastic in the Desert Door Margarita (Desert Door Sotol, fresh lime juice, Ancho Reyes Verde Chile Poblano Liqueur, orange liqueur). Take a weekend drive to the 6,500-square-foot Driftwood distillery for craft cocktails and guided tours, then sit for a spell in the stylish tasting room.
