Sotol is a native plant that’s been around for 13,000 years. As a liquor it has existed since the 1500’s, and the spirit is very much on the rise according to Forbes, Wine Enthusiast and more. Desert Door is the only sotol distillery in the USA and our processing is unlike any other distillery, so a tour at Desert Door is truly unique.
Tours are about 30 minutes and include a private tasting of Desert Door Original and Oak Aged sotol. While touring our facility, you’ll see wild-harvested sotol plants, hear our backstory, and learn the history of sotol. We’ll take you behind the scenes to see where our sotol plants are steamed, juiced, fermented, distilled, and barrel-aged.
