We were thrilled to see Distillery Cascahuín, where El Rey is produced, featured in Forbes magazine's list of Five of the World's Best Tequilas—and at #2 on the list, no less.
Here's how Forbes describes Cascahuín Blanco:
Earthy, sweet, oven-cooked agave, citrus, and anise harmonize nearly perfectly in this old-school treasure. This is very close to what Tequila tasted like 100 years ago. It’s made by the Contreras family, whose roots go back centuries nearly to the origins of Tequila itself. They began producing Cascahuín in El Arenal in the Tequila Valley in 1954, and just this year released this gem of a Tequila...
We're not surprised, though. The flavors Cascahuín produces are exquisite and exactly what we were looking for when we set out to create El Rey—in fact, they share the same base flavor.
We look forward to seeing Tequila El Rey in future "best of" lists alongside its cousin Cascahuín.
