Desert Door is a craft distiller of a premium and unique Texas spirit known as Texas sotol. Their liquor is made from the sotol plant which they wild-harvest all across Texas, from Driftwood to Marfa. Sotol was the first alcoholic beverage ever consumed by humans in Texas 800 years ago, and the plant has been in use for over 13,000 years. The sotol is smoother than whiskey, less smokey than mezcal, and it doesn’t burn like tequila. The intriguing and complex flavor will give you a sensation of west Texas in every sip and you can substitute your usual spirit with sotol for a more compelling cocktail.
Desert Door Distillery is located in Driftwood, on the eastern edge of wild sotol country, where you can drop by the desert modern tasting room and enlighten your palate. Enjoy live music every weekend and delicious bites from the onsite food truck.
