Desert Door Texas Sotol was born in the West Texas desert, where our founders first encountered the Sotol plant - a spiky desert succulent that, hundreds of years ago, was used by Indigenous residents for everything from tools and food to fermented drink. We age our Original Texas Sotol in new white oak barrels for about a year to create our Oak-Aged Texas Sotol.
“Sotol” is both the name of our spirit and the plant we make it from. We wild-harvest all our sotol on ranches across Texas; we don’t farm or cultivate any of our sotol stock. Wild-harvesting is a much more sustainable practice than monocropping and helps conserve valuable resources such as land and water.
