  • Wall Street Journal writer Writer Charles Passy declares that "Sotol will become the new mescal" in Food for the Future: Trends of 2016! Distilled from a cousin of the Agave, Sotol is made from a succulent called Dasylirion Wheeleri and takes approximately 15 years to mature. One plant yields only one bottle of Sotol.
