Sotol: A Traditional Spirit of Northern Mexico



Cocktails, Food and Education

Join us for a deep dive into Sotol. Enjoy a sotol cocktail, samples of sotol, food and a deep dive into Sotol.

Sotol is made from 1 of 16 species within the Dasylirion genus, a spindly stemmed succulent plant which grows in a burst of spiky leaves in the arid hills of northern Mexico, much in the way agave grows further south. Indeed, it was once classified as an agave plant (and is part of the same plant order), which would technically make distillates from it mezcal. However, sotol was reclassified more recently, moving it to its own family tree and creating a separate class of drink.

Sotol, especially those that have forgone aging, can be grassier, less smoky and every bit as complex as a well-made mezcal or tequila. And, as a sign of its growing maturity, sotol has been granted its own denomination of origin (like tequila and mezcal), which restricts production to the northern Mexican states of Chihuahua, Coahuila and Durango.

Mezcal Lalocura Tasting Dinner
6:00 PM18:00

Mezcal Lalocura Tasting Dinner

Mezcal Lalocura is new to the Minnesota market. It represents mezcal made in the "ancestral" process. Join us for a tasting and educational event to learn more about this brand and the ancestral way of making mezcal.

Ticket includes a welcome cocktail, dinner, tastings and presentation from Lalocura's national brand ambassador.

Lalocura's clay pot distilled mezcales have built a steady cult following of chefs, writers, and mezcal-heads, who turn up at the palenque each day hoping to spend a few hours listening to maestro mezcalero Eduardo "Lalo" Ángeles tell stories, taste the 20+ expressions he has resting in glass at any given time.

Before starting Lalocura in 2014, Eduardo Ángeles spent years working as the fourth generation master distiller of his family’s label Real Minero, where he combined a lifetime of working under his father, the late, great Don Lorenzo with a degree in agricultural engineering, and a philosophy that is all his own.

As conscientious of where he sells his bottles as he is of what goes into them, Lalo's mezcal has only been available outside of the palenque at a select few venues in Mexico.

Until Now.

Añejo Tequila Tasting

Añejo Tequila Tasting

UPDATE: Event has sold out. Our next event will be in February.

It's winter in Minnesota, so this is the perfect time to sip on some aged tequilas. Anejo tequila must be aged in oak by law, but using different types of oak and barrel treatments opens up many flavor possibilities. Todd Mulhair is hosting our walk through añejos, cocktails and food.

Welcome cocktails at 6pm followed by a presentation and tasting.
