Mike,

Here are some bits and pieces I found on the internet that may be of help--

Sotol or Zotol: in Jalisco and Nayarit, a distilled drink using fermented sap of the desert yucca called sotol, of the genus Dasylirion.

There are several varieties of the maguey (mah-GAY) plant, a cactus-like jack-of-all-trades, used to produce aguamiel and pulque (central Mexico), mezcal (Oaxaca), tequila (Jalisco), comiteco (Chiapas), charanda (Michoacán), zotol (Chihuahua) and bacamora (Sonora).

1925 domestic tax was levied and collected by Mexican federal government on alcohol industries, liquors, wines, beer and pulques; specifically tequilas, mezcales, zotoles, liquors, pulque and legitimate wines made with the juice of the grape or other substances, and other spirits of national production.

Cheers,

Frank Sternad

The keg and bottles is a nice touch in that stamp.
A collector of Dos Reales of the first design. Always having fun.

For clarity, here is an example of what I'm talking about.

No they aren't. I know what you are talking about. The ones I am aksing about are the same general size and shape as a normal postage stamp, having a valuation and have either Alchoholes, Licores or Cerveza as a part of the printing, not overprinted as some other stamps are.

The strip stamps are another matter. They don't really tell you what they are for, but anyone who has opened a bottle of liquor or wine will know what you are talking about.

Were they stamps that could be attached to the bottles?

In 1925 - 1930, three series of stamps were issued for those three categories.

Can anyone confirm their use?

I suggest that they represent production taxes, in a manner similar to the Petroleos and the US wine and beer stamps.

Does anyone know the real answer?
