Nerd Night Sotol is proudly sponsored by: Hacienda de Chihuahua


A huge thank you to Hacienda de Chihuahua for sponsoring our 5th Nerd Night!   Hacienda de Chihuahua’s Sotol is an extraordinarily pure spirit with its own denomination of origin, highly valued for over 800 years for its rich flavors.  It is an organic agavacea, wild-harvested in the Chihuahuan Desert of Northern Mexico which takes 15 years to mature.  From there, their master distiller, who received his Masters degree in enology at the world renowned École Nationale Supérieure Agronomique de Montpellier, France  meticulously oversees our state of the art production process which starts by slow steam cooking the wild-harvested plants, naturally ferment them with champagne yeast and distill the “aguamiel” in a double-column copper still where our plata and platinum, genuine, non-stop travel, from the desert to you un-aged editions are directly bottled after being double and triple-distilled respectively.
