'100% AGAVE TEQUILA'
Casco Viejo Blanco is a traditional hand crafted tequila produced by the Camarena Brothers, the third largest owners of agave plantations in Mexico. Their privileged access to the finest plants from the premium highland region of Arandas creates 100% agave banco and reposed tequilas of exceptional quality.
As the 3rd largest owner of agave plantations, the Camarenas are in a perfect position to concentrate 100% agave tequilas. Then pints are traditionally baked in brick ovens, rather than autoclaved, and a similar level of attention to traditional methods is applied to every part of the process: water it reliably sourced from their own artesian wells, and their yeasts are unique descendants of those used in the 1930s. Distillation takes place in traditional pot stills; new American oak barrels are used for ageing; and the tequilas are reduced to the correct strength with water from their own well, filtered by reverse osmosis.
This is a family business that has been passed through each generation the respect for growing the best agave and distilling and maturing tequila of great pure flavour ideal or classic cocktail or as a single shot. Mexico City's favourite tequila!
Nose: On the nose it is delicately fruity, with cherry and ripe apple hints, intense cooked agave and notes of vanilla, caramel and chocolate.
