The Hidden Gem of Mexico’s Spirits Unveiled in Stockholm! 


Tequila and mezcal aficionado or not, get ready for a wild ride through the world of spirits! We’ve got a tale to tell that might just introduce you to your new favorite drink, and it goes by the name of Sotol.

We were invited by Alias Smith, in partnership with the Mexican Embassy, to explore the hidden treasures of the drink scene.  Introducing Sotol! It’s like the hidden gem of Mexico, straight out of the northern deserts of Chihuahua, Durango, and Coahuila. This ancient elixir, crafted from the Dasyliron plant, has been soothing souls and satisfying thirsts since prehistoric times.

Now, you might wonder why Sotol hasn’t stolen the spotlight like tequila or mezcal. Well, it’s been a rocky road, thanks to the twists and turns of history. From persecutions to Prohibition, this spirit has faced many obstacles.

But now the masterminds behind Sotol Noche Luna, Ricardo Pico, Maestro Vinatero Don Lalo Arrieta, Ivan Saldaña, and yes, even the legendary Lenny Kravitz, are here to shake things up. That’s right,  Lenny Kravitz isn’t just rocking the stage; he’s shaking up cocktails with Sotol Noche Luna, including his signature “Fly Away” cocktail, mixing Sotol, pineapple juice, Ancho Reyes, lime, and salt. Because when you take a sip, you’ll feel just like that flying away.

Let Lenny Kravitz tell you more about Noche Luna

But enough talk  let’s get to the good stuff. What does Sotol taste like? Is it like tequila, mezcal, or something entirely unique? Brace yourself for a flavor journey like no other. Noche Luna Sotol is a symphony of minerals and herbs. And the best part? You can find Noche Luna in Stockholm, whether at Systembolaget or indulging in Mexican cuisine at the delightful restaurant Xulo.

So, until our paths cross again, stay safe and hopefully you may fly away!
