tequila's smoother more sustainable cousin

Welcome to the untamed spirit of the Texas desert, encapsulated in every drop of Desert Door Texas Sotol Original. Our story begins amidst the rugged landscapes and arid beauty of West Texas, where the sotol plant thrives in the unforgiving terrain. With a heritage deeply rooted in tradition and an unquenchable thirst for adventure, we've crafted a spirit that embodies the essence of the wild west.

Explore the heart of Texas through the unique flavors of our original sotol, a bold and distinctive expression that pays homage to the land, culture, and pioneering spirit that defines our home. Join us on a journey as we unlock the secrets of the desert, one sip at a time.

What is Desert Door Texas Sotol?

‘Sotol’ is both the name of our unique spirit and the plant we make it from. The sotol plant is not an agave but a distinct and separate species. Which means Desert Door is not in fact a tequila. So, If we’re not a tequila what are we? Imagine if tequila had a smoother, more flavorful cousin - that’s Desert Door.

Our Mission

How do I drink Sotol?

Desert Door Original is great for mixing in cocktails and can be substituted for clear spirits in most recipes. It can also be enjoyed neat or over an ice cube.
