Dolores González Torres
Dolores resides in the southern Sierra of Yerbaniz Batopilas, Chihuahua. The region, terroir, wooden still, hand crushed by ax agave, the single fermentation vat over 100 years old, make for a very special offering. This 340 liter batch of Lechuguilla is what Dolores has begun bottling into his local brand called Cumbrita de la Sierra that he hopes to grow into an international brand. His process and palenque appear to be one of the most ancestral ways of making agave spirits and the occasional sotol.
