Day of the Dead is a day of remembrance celebrated in an explosion of colour, song and dance, as a carnival atmosphere captures the country.

Wherever you are this year, Cazcabel Tequila – a premium and authentic range of Mexican tequilas, has ensured you won’t miss out on these lively events. Crafted in an independent distillery in the highlands of the Jalisco Mountains, Cazcabel Tequila takes only the finest natural ingredients from the land and gives them new life, making it a very fitting drink of choice for this commemoration.

So, what will you enjoy this Dio De Los Muertos? If you’re into a fresh and crisp tequila that has a rustic hit of earthy agave, Cazcabel Blanco Tequila, will be your pick. If you want a twist on a traditional Reposado, Cazcabel’s Reposado Tequila boasts light citrus notes and a Jalapeno tingle finish. If you’re still warming up to tequila, their Cazcabel Coffee Tequila will give you a roasted sweet hit of luxury coffee, while their Cazcabel Honey Tequila packs a punch for cocktails with its rich caramel and light floral notes.

If you prefer to enjoy your tequila in cocktails, Cazcabel has rounded up four themed cocktails to mark Day of the Dead.
