Sotol Festival, happening in Terlingua Friday and Saturday, April 12-13, will bring a variety of sotol brands to a new audience. The festival celebrates this regional distilled spirit for the first time on this scale in the U.S.

The evergreen sotol plant, with its slender serrated leaves, is prolific in the Big Bend and northern Mexico, where the drink originated. It is made in a way similar way to Mexico’s more famous import, tequila, but sotol is favored among many in Terlingua, and is the state drink of Chihuahua, Durango, and Coahuila.
