Call the shots with Casco Viejo

Casco Viejo is a traditional hand-crafted tequila produced by the Camarena family, the third largest owner

of agave plantations in Mexico.

Casco Viejo


a best-selling tequila in Mexico City and in March this year it secured listings in Sainsbury's stores nationwide.

All Casco Viejo tequilas are produced and bottled on the family estate from

agave plants which take eight to 12 years before they can be harvested. At 70 per cent, Casco Viejo Silver and Gold standard versions have a higher agave content than standard tequilas for a richer flavour.

OLN has teamed up with Emporia Brands, the UK agent

for Casco Viejo, to offer a case of six 70cl bottles of Casco Viejo Tequilas - three bottles of Silver and three bottles of Gold - to the winner of this competition.

To win the prize, just answer the following question:

How long does an

agave plant take to grow before it can be harvested to make Tequila?

Send your answer, with your name , address and daytime telephone number on a postcard marked Casco Viejo Tequila competition, by Nov 30, to: Emporia Brands , The Church, 172 London Road, Guildford, Surrey GUl 1XR or e-mail your answer to
