Transport Yourself to Mexico these holidays with Cazcabel Tequila
It’s no surprise that Mexico continues to be a top contender on people’s bucket lists due to its heat, culture, beaches, food and tequila. While we patiently wait for international travel to resume, gift your loved one an authentic Mexican experience this Christmas with Cazcabel Tequila – a range of premium tequilas that recently launched into Australia.
Blessed by Don Cazcabel, the mythical Mexican curador and “Snakeman” of the Jalisco Mountains, the range includes Blanco, Coffee, Reposado and Honey. Four award-winning generations continue to perfect every batch in an independent micro distillery in the highlands of the Jalisco Mountains, using the finest, locally grown, seven-year-old Blue Weber agave.
If your loved one is a fan of traditional tequila and spirits, then look no further.
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, ABV: 38%.
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, ABV 38%.
Whereas, if you’re beloved family member or friend is interested in broadening their horizons or fancies a flavoured tipple, Cazcabel Coffee and Honey Tequila will go down a treat!
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, ABV 34%.
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, ABV 34%.
Now that you have the perfect gift sorted, it’s time to showcase your expert cocktail making skills! These festive recipes require minimal effort but will have your guests raving.

About Cazcabel Tequila:
Cazcabel Tequila is the result of one man’s pursuit to craft the perfect tequila. Don Cazcabel, also known as the “Snakeman”, began crafting his tequila in a run down shack in the Jalisco highlands in Mexico with the help of his trusted donkey, Silver. Ever since then, his name has graced each and every bottle of Cazcabel Tequila, holding up the traditions of artisan tequila, quality and heritage.
Cazcabel Tequila is one of the fastest growing tequila brands, boasting multiple awards, including being the highest rated spirit at the Great Taste Awards, as well as the whole Cazcabel range being awarded Gold at The Spirits Business Tequila & Mezcal Awards in 2019.
