At Lot001, we strive to curate a portfolio that represents the highest quality agave, sotol, caña, and maíz spirits made by the most extraordinary producers. These amazing liquids carry with them a historic, economic, and cultural significance that we regard as much more than just bottles on a shelf. We experience their sensorial delights, we travel to places and back in time and we hear the voices of makers and their ancestors.

We listen, come and listen with us.

WE LOVE REAL TEQUILA!

We love tequila that is really good, too. Luckily, we have both here.

This beautiful blanco tequila from Tequila Mi Casa is made with three ingredients and three ingredients only. The agave comes from a single estate in Michoacán, the Rodriguez family land, where they’ve been growing Blue Weber since around 2000. They were the first to make tequila with 100% Michoacán agave, and they remain one of only a few.

This wonderful elixir was distilled 12 years ago and rested in stainless steel tanks for 10 years at 54.5% ABV, then it was adjusted to 45.5% ABV and spent another 2 years in bottle. In that time it has grown up, mastered the art of relaxation, and probably even earned a PhD in chemistry.

Cheers, friends. Let’s get this party started.

Pictured here is Bienvenido Fernández. His sotol made from wheeleri continues to stand out as something that needs to be experienced. It bursts with citrus, excites the palate, and raises eyebrows. ⁣
We’re welcoming Parejo into Lot001 Brands, and with that we welcome Bienvenido, his brother Juan, and the Familia Arrieta. It is an honor to represent such exceptional vinateros. We look forward to sharing their stories and enjoying their spirits.

Parejo is committed to the preservation of Mexican cultural traditions in distillation throughout the Sierra and Desert regions of Chihuahua. The brand aims to provide a tasting experience steeped in history and one that is direct from the source.⁣
The producers that work within the brand are incredibly experienced and talented. Their individual styles are presented in their spirits. Only sotol that is ‘parejo,’ or perfect, makes it into a Parejo bottle.

Introducing Jorge Caldera, one of the founders and the brilliant orchestrator of Sotol Parejo.⁣
Parejo is founded by Jorge Caldera, who has devoted 13 years to studying the native spirits of Chihuahua. In 2015, he embarked on a journey across Chihuahua in search of the producers. For many years, viñatas were considered illegal by the government. Because of this, Jorge found that a shared struggle existed among the maestros. Unfortunately, their craft was considered taboo.

He first found himself with maestros from the desert, in hidden towns seemingly in the middle of nowhere but connected through the joyous simplicity of their lives. Later, he went to the forests and spent time with maestros who held a long and rich history in sotol production. He absorbed their stories and they became a sort of extended family for him. He then encountered maestros from the tropical areas of Chihuahua who continue to craft lechuguilla using traditional methods. All of these experiences added to his understanding, appreciation, and love for the spirits of his homeland.

The goal of Parejo from the outset was to recapture the historical taste of sotol, which have become like an endangered species. Conversations with vinateros revealed a recurring term: “PAREJO.” It became clear that this word was used to describe great sotol, and Jorge wanted to share that perfection. He works directly with the producers, immersing himself in every aspect of sotol and lechuguilla production - from the plant to the perlas. 

With Parejo, we now have an opportunity to celebrate what was once clandestine.
