This Cascahuin Cerro de Luz is a very special release from Cascahuin with only 2250 bottles world wide. The production methods used for this tequila are something special and are evident in the final product. Agaves cooked in 5 different earthen ovens are blended together before traditional tahona maceration. This is followed by open tank fermentation in wood with the agave fibres before double distillation also with the agave fibres present. The result is something magnificent. The tequila is rested for 5 months in glass before bottling.
