Cazcabel Tequila has all your cocktail needs covered this Christmas

Who doesn’t like kicking off the holiday festivities with a tequila cocktail? Summer has officially arrived and Christmas is just around the corner so it’s time to up the entertaining ante with Cazcabel Tequila, which recently launched its premium range in Australia. 

Cazcabel Tequila is created in an independent micro-distillery in the town of Arandas, located in the highlands of the Jalisco mountains in Mexico. The elevation of Arandas ensures that the agave are well hydrated and that they have mineral and nutrient-rich soil which allow them to grow larger than anywhere else in Jalisco.

The recently launched range includes Blanco, Coffee, Reposado and Honey. 

Cazcabel Blanco Tequila – At the heart of Cascabel’s range, the spirit is fashioned from sun-baked blue weber agave from the heart of the Jalisco region. Fresh, crisp and with a rustic hit of earthy agave, this tequila is truly one to be sipped and savoured. RRP $64.99.

Cazcabel Reposado Tequila – Rested in American oak barrels for nine to eleven months, it balances the clean and earthy agave flavour of the double-distilled Blanco with the complex but subtle aromas of toasted oak. RRP $69.99.

Cazcabel Coffee Tequila – Using the fresh and earthy base of the Blanco, Cazcabel Coffee Tequila blends in a roasted sweet hit of luxury coffee for the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness. It’s a stunning shot that can be used in innovative cocktails or enjoyed neat over nice. RRP $59.99.

Cazcabel Honey Tequila – This multi-award-winning tipple is one of the world’s first honey tequilas! With the fresh, earthy and dry Blanco at its heart, Cazcabel Honey Tequila adds a dose of sweet nectar to the blend. An intense aroma of honey and rich caramel packs a punch for cocktails and drinks. RRP $59.99.

And now for the all-important cocktail recipes. You’re welcome!
