Original

Clean and fresh with a palate-pleasing flavor, Desert Door Original sotol is unlike any other spirit in this world (or the next). With only three ingredients—wild sotol, organic yeast, and purified natural Texas water—it’s low in calories too.

Tasting Notes

Herbaceous, creamy, and vegetal - and unquestionably of the desert terroir. It leaves the palate with a crisp earthiness, a hint of floral mint, and just the right amount of sweetness to calm it down. Its dry and weighty finish will make you wonder why you haven’t met before and have you dreaming of your next encounter.

Additional Notes

Desert Door Original is as versatile as a vodka, but far more intriguing and complex. When it comes to craft cocktails, it can one-up the usual suspects from bourbon to gin to tequila. We find our own cocktails the most compelling.

Oak-Aged

At 100-proof, Desert Door Oak-Aged sotol isn’t for snowflakes. Distilled using only mature plants, and aged in new American-charred white oak barrels, this ultra-premium sipping spirit has the smoothness of bourbon and warmth of brandy while retaining the unique flavors only wild Texas sotol can deliver.

Tasting Notes

More floral than vegetal, the bouquet opens with a bang of caramel vanilla and a touch of mint. Next comes an infusion of oak and a hint of smoke. It finishes with sweet earth and ineffable mystery. Unlike many tequilas and whiskeys, there is no burn, and the subtlety of smoke distinguishes it from mescal. The aftertaste whispers of white peppercorn, rose water, and oaky vanilla.

Additional Notes

We place Desert Door Oak-Aged sotol next to the finest aged spirits on the market. Elemental, beautiful, and natural, it transports imbibers to a uniquely Texas place and time. In fact, this Desert Door sotol has converted lifelong bourbon drinkers, tequila lovers, mescal fanatics, and many a wine snob after just one glass.
