SOTOL COYOTE

Triumph of the Desert

DESERT TRIUMPH

The story tells that there were three characters who survived the desert.
These characters are called: El Maestro Sotolero, the coyote and the sotol; all three have coexisted and lived together in the same environment since the first memories of them.
The noble sotol plant managed to adapt to extreme conditions of high temperatures and to receive few amounts of water and even so, it allows the Master to have it available to provide him with food, footwear and that spiritual drink called sotol, which managed to calm his soul.
The Master Sotolero, inhabitant of the arid deserts, decided to continue with the tradition inherited by his grandparents of producing sotol; out of tradition, out of love or simply by way of supporting his family.
The coyote, an animal hated and loved by man, had to learn to make his cunning his best survival weapon in the face of the excessive urbanism of man, to know when to go hunting, when to hide, when to move in a herd and when alone.

Through the Chihuahuan desert you can see the three of them, the teacher jimando a sotol under the strong 40-degree heat, while in the background a coyote that walks alone, observes the man jimando and then continues walking.
Sotol Coyote is a tribute to these three characters; that they have never wavered before what has been presented to them throughout time and history; Sotol Coyote was born to be known, appreciated and remembered. We are a survival story.
