Cascahuín Tahona Blanco Tequila

Cascahuín Tahona Blanco Tequila

Item # 42570 750mL

This family owned palenque that dates back over a century is still dedicated to making uncompromising tequilas in the old artisan fashion. The Tahona expression reaches for the pinnacle of this style, shunning any "industrial" practices. The lowland agaves are first cooked very slowly in brick ovens, then crushed by a manually turned Tahona, naturally fermented with bagasse in cement vats, and double distilled in a combination of stainless steel and copper pot stills.

Glossary

Tahona

 The traditional, large stone wheel turned by donkeys, oxen or tractors. It pivots in a circular space (often a cement well) to mash the pulp of the agave into a coarse paste and extract the juice (aguamiel). This is diluted with water to give it the necessary consistency for fermentation. Also see molina and noria.
