The Cascahuin brand and their top-notch tequilas have a prestigious reputation in Mexico. Cascahuín itself is a family-run tequila producer that was established in 1904 by Salvador Rosales Briseño in a small town in Jalisco (the Mexican home state of tequila) called El Arenal.

Cascahuin has gained a reputation for producing an especially high-quality tequila that’s kept with the traditional production methods they’ve been mastering for over a century, staying committed to preserving the heritage of tequila and the authentic ways of traditional tequila-producing methods in the region of Jalisco.

Briseño chose the name ‘Cascahuin’, which is a pre-Hispanic word meaning ‘Peak of Light’ or ‘Hill of Light’, to proudly reflect the origins of the tequila-making tradition which is said to date back to around 300 A.D. when the Aztecs were using it for their religious ceremonies.

Alongside Cascahuin Blanco Tequila, the brand offers other variations of tequila: Anejo, Reposado, Blanco Tahona and Plata 48.

What makes Cascahuin Blanco Tequila special?

People absolutely love Cascahuin Blanco Tequila because of its balanced flavour and rich agave taste with hints of nut and sweet fruit. Cascahuin Blanco Tequila is made using a ‘Tahona wheel’ - a big wheel-shaped stone said to have been brought over to Mexico by the Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century and used to grind and crush the cooked agave into the juice called ‘aguamiel’ (Spanish for ‘honey water’). This method preserves the natural taste and sweetness of the agave, playing a crucial part in providing a richer and more complex selection of aromas and flavours.

The Tahona wheel, often sometimes referred to as the ‘Tahona stone’, is made from volcanic rock and is usually a specific type known as ‘volcanic basalt’. The tahona wheel was originally pulled by a horse or a mule, but in current times, to promote animal welfare, it’s now pulled by a machine. The Tohana wheel is not used to make every tequila in the world - this practice is generally only used for the more ‘traditional’ hand-produced tequilas like those made by Cascahuin. It’s definitely a slower process that requires a lot more manual labour… but by jove the results are worth it!

Cascahuin Blanco Tequila continues to stand out even more as we continue down the production process by its use of copper distillation pots. Copper pots are more expensive and harder to clean than stainless steel pots so many distilleries use stainless steel instead. Copper, however, is a far superior heat conductor, and because it leaves the end product with richer, tastier flavours, Cascahuin insists on sticking with copper.

Attaining to the highest standards, Cascahuin uses deep well spring water, some of the purest water available, to prodcue their Blanco Tequila. Aside from the cleanliness, this type of water is known to have a significant impact on the personality and flavour of the tequila.

Cascahuin also keeps all their tequilas free of any preservatives, additives, artificial sweeteners or other chemicals, providing a REAL and authentic tequila experience - so again, hats off to Cascahuin for really sticking to the traditional artisanal tequila-producing methods, and their commitment to producing a top-of-the-line premium tequila.
