About Sotol: Sotol is a distilled spirit made from a plant that was once thought to be an agave; in those days it was referred to as a mezcal.

The plant is found throughout Mexico, but the Denomination of Origin dictates that to be labeled a sotol it must come from 1 of 3 regions: Chihuahua, Coahuila and Durango.
