Cascahuin Plata 48 Tequila is another very fine and high quality tequila from the Cascahuin brand. Like all tequilas from this producer, it is made using traditional artisanal methods to give us a rich nuance of flavours to enjoy. Salvador Rosales Briseño created the first Cascahuin distillery in 1904 in the Mexican town of El Arenal.

The traditional methods that Cascahuin continues to use has shown to produce a top-drawer premium tequila. The tequila produced has high purity and retains the rich, complex flavours of the agave. The brand is recognized as being unquestionably one of the most superior producers of tequila in the region of Jalisco (the home of tequila). It’s very common for tequila producers to use modern methods and technologies to save time and money, but not Cascahuin.

What makes the Cascahuin Plata 48 Tequila special?

Cascahuin Plata 48 was named to emphasise that this blanco tequila has an alcohol volume of 48%. High ABV tequilas are the most traditional tequilas and in more recent times a lot of tequila is now made at a lower strength, typically from 38-40% ABV. Cascahuin released their ‘Plata 48’ tequila to the public in memory of its founder Salvador Rosales Briseño so we can enjoy tequila as it was traditionally made.

Each production lot never exceeds 2500 litres, so it’s no surprise that this fantastic, velvety-smooth tequila is a lot harder to find than most others. We recommend snatching up a bottle (or two) while they’re in stock!

Cascahuin tequila is famous for its purity because no preservatives, artificial sweeteners additives or chemicals are added during or after production. Cascahuin takes its quality further by ensuring that they use the purest water, from deep well springs, to produce their tequila.

The majority of tequila producers use a mechanical shredder with rotating blades, commonly known as an ‘agave mill’, to squeeze out the juicy pulp know as ‘aguamiel’ (honey water), this pulp is then fermented and distilled into the splendid tequila spirit. Cascahuin however continues to do things the traditional way by turning a massive Tahona wheel over the agave to crush them and squeeze out the juice. The Tahona wheel is a huge round, wheel-shaped rock usually made of ‘volcanic basalt’, traditionally horses were used to pull the wheel and rotate the rock over the agaves but now a machine is used to pull the heavy Tahona wheel instead.  Using a Tahona wheel requires far more time and manual work than an agave shredder, but retains comparatively more of the natural flavour of the agave.

 Cascahuin Plata 48 Tequila is made using copper distillation pots. These pots are perfect for producing tequila due to how copper conducts heat, resulting in a better and richer tasting end product. This traditional artisanal method is becoming rare as the majority of distilleries now only use stainless steel pots, which are cheaper and easier to clean.

Hats off to Cascahuin for sticking to these high quality procedures and giving us this remarkable premium tequila to enjoy and appreciate!
