Parejo Sotol

Parejo Sotol Bienvenido Fernández-Wheeleri Mezcal


Bienvenido Fernández-Wheeleri

The Maestro of the Sierra.

Bienve has been distilling sotol since he could carry the bar to knock down the dasylirion stem.

A 4th generation maestro, and legendary storyteller, Bienve has always smiled in the face of adversity. Evading the eye of authorities, he embraced a nomadic life to traverse mountain ranges with the aid of his favorite donkey to carry his copper still. As he traveled, he crafted batches of sotol, lechuguilla, and ensambles from the plants he encountered along the trail.

Distilled in Madera, a city located in the northwest of Chihuahua, at an altitude of 6,900 feet above sea level, this area is known for its coniferous forest vegetation. Its high altitude provides a cool subtropical climate, with humid summers and cold and dry winters.
