Since 1904, Tequila Cascahuín has been a reliable and revered protector of traditional tequila production. It’s distinguished today amid the renaissance of historically made tequila for its longevity as a producer, the quality of the raw agave used in production, and the distinctive and authentic flavors of its distillates—in short, the superior standards and quality of its tequila. Chosen by founder Salvador Rosales Briseño, the name “Cascahuín” has pre-Hispanic roots, meaning “hill of light” or “celebration on the hill.”
The production of Cascahuín Tequila has remained at one historic fabrica (now NOM 1123) since its inception; this is the Rosales family distillery in El Arenal—a region known as the “gateway to agave.” After years of collaborating with David Suro to produce Siembra Valles, the fourth- and fifth-generation distillers in the Rosales family have begun working with Suro Imports to bring their own family brand of unique and beautiful tequilas to the US market.
Every batch of Cascahuín is produced entirely from a single estate harvest, whether from the Rosales family’s own fields, or meticulously sourced from some of the best cultivators of Blue Weber agave in the Valles region of Jalisco. The brand includes a classic line-up of exceptional tequilas at 40% ABV in blanco and limited aged expressions, but quickly advances in leaps and bounds with elegant and distinctive bottlings, including a higher-ABV label at 48%, a Tahona-milled blanco, and a rotating roster of limited-edition releases—all of which come and go, garnering demand and much acclaim.
