Cascahuin Blanco Tahona Tequila really shows off the Cascahuin brand’s commitment to making their tequila using traditional craftsmanship methods. Whereas other tequila producers tend to use modern mechanical equipment to extract the ‘aguamiel’, the sweet juice from the cooked agave to be then turned into tequila, Cascahuin uses the time-tested, classical method of crushing the agave using a volcanic stone - the Tahona wheel - usually made of ‘volcanic basalt’. The Tahona wheel was traditionally pulled by a horse, but being the animal-lovers that the Mexicans are, they’ve switched to using a machine to pull the big, heavy rock. It’s a slower process that needs more work, but the outstanding tequila we’re left with has more unique flavours and textures.

Cascahuin decided to create their Cascahuin Blanco Tahona Tequila to give tequila-lovers around the world a special premium tequila who’s juices are extracted 100% by the Tahona wheel so they can experience the delights of tequila as it was enjoyed centuries ago, before modern machinery was introduced and the rich flavours obtained by the Tahona-wheel-method were sacrificed in exchange for a speedier production time.

Alongside Cascahuin Tahona, the brand offers 4 other excellent expressions of their best tequila.

What makes the Cascahuin Blanco Tahona Tequila special?

Aside from using the Tahona wheel, Cascahuin uses other traditional tequila-producing methods to make their Cascahuin Blanco Tahona Tequila.

Cascahuin sets itself apart from other tequila producers by using copper pots in its distillation process. While other producers use stainless steel for the lower cost and easier maintenance, Cascahuin uses copper because it’s a better heat conductor and leaves the tequila with richer flavours.

Another way Cascahuin makes sure their Blanco Tahona is high quality, pure, and abundant in flavour is by using deep will spring water. Aside from being a very clean and purified water, the fact that it’s been filtered through rock and soil leaves it with minerals such as calcium and magnesium which can add a subtle bit of extra flavour to the tequila. Cascahuin also prides itself on adding no preservatives, artificial sweeteners or other additives. It really is a pure, high quality premium tequila!
