The Second Segment(Technical details that are mostly available on google search)

What is sotol? 
According to their website, Sotol is both the name of the spirit and the plant it is made from. 

Reads the website description "We wild harvest our sotol on ranches across Texas, we don't farm or cultivate any of our sotol stock "

What is wild harvesting? 
Unlike farming, ingredients are collected from crown native land that hasn't been farmed and no trees are cut down in the process.
