Famous for his natural tonics, Don Cazacabel is a healer with powers that attracted Mexicans from hundreds of miles around. A fainthful student of Toltec, Olmec and Aztec traditions, his Tequila recipes only use the best, natural ingredients that the fertile land can offer and his philosophy has been the inspiration for Cazcabel Tequila.
Cazcabel tequila is created in an independent micro distillery in the town of Arandas, located in the highlands of the Jalisco mountains in Mexico.
The elevation of Arandas ensures that the agave are well hydrated and that they have mineral and nutrient rich soil which allow them to grow larger than anywhere else in Jalisco.
Once harvested they use autoclaves to steam their piñas and start converting the carbohydrates and starches into fermentable sugars. Autoclaves have many benefits including being able to regulate temperatures which allow for an even cook and a beautifully clean tequila.
After fermenting in steel tanks for 10 days, Cazcabel is distilled using a combination of copper pot and steel stills and then chill-filtered to get rid of any impurities. The combination of these processes gives Cazcabel tequila its well rounded but amazingly smooth and balanced flavour.
Each sip comes with a fresh, crisp and earthy agave flavour, with a hint of citrus and a crack of black pepper.
Good with sushi, carnitas, ceviche or Tequila lime vegan tacos
