Review: Cabresto Silver Tequila
Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 15, 2016
Tequila Cabresto, imported by Cabresto Imports Corporation, is a brand rooted as solidly in Detroit as they are in Arandas, Mexico. It is a family owned brand with duties spread across two generations of the Lopez family. Founder Silverio Lopez runs the family ranch in Arandas and cares for the agave until its reached peak yield. His son Antonio is learning the craft of growing the agave and currently handles the branding and exportation of Cabresto to the United States. Silverio’s daughter, Sonia, is the first Lopez to graduate college and is spearheading the US operations of the Cabresto Imports Corporation. They do all this while maintaining the family tire shop in Southwest Detroit.
Cabresto Silver Tequila is a pure 100% Agave tequila. The agave fields, and the distillery which produces the tequila are located in Atotonilco in the highlands of Los Altos de Jalisco, Mexico. The harvested agave is cooked in an adobe furnace that softens the plant’s fibers and transforms its starches into sugars. Once cooked and rested the agave is passed through a shredder to separate the coarse fibers, then through rollers to squeeze out its sweet juice.
As a highland tequila,we can expect the Cabresto Tequila to exhibit strong fruity citrus notes and to have a little hot pepper in the delivery and in the finish. (This is as opposed to lowland tequila which has stronger earthier flavours of agave and less hot pepper.)
Cabresto Silver Tequila is bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.
Here is a link to my full review of a blanco tequila which I have found to be ridiculously good:
“… The fruity agave seems to hint at impressions of baked garden squash, grilled pineapple and mushy banana. As I am enjoying the aroma, I notice citrus spice and herb pepper building up and breaking free from the earthy agave notes. Perhaps I am noticing a hint of cinnamon and a touch of soothing menthol in the breezes as well …”
Please enjoy my review of this outstanding silver tequila, Chimo!
