Cacho de Cabra (Goat's Horn)

Mellow Chilies of South America

Cacho de Cabra [Ca-cho day Ca-bra] -

Goat's Horn, a smoked chili pepper from Peru and Chile noted for its intense smoked chili flavor. (Heat: 1K - 5K Scoville.)

Pasilla de Oaxaca [Pa-see-ya day Wa-ha-ca] -

Aisle of Oaxaca, a smoked chili pepper from the Mexican state of Oaxaca noted for its luxuriously rich smoked chili flavor. (Heat: 4K - 10K Scoville.)

These chilies both start out about as hot as a Jalapeno, but we use a custom flavor extraction process to take the smoke and the robust chili flavor without all the heat. After the process, the whiskey is equivalent to a mild Anaheim pepper (about 1000 Scoville). Honey tempers and balances the chili flavors for a smooth sipping whiskey you can enjoy neat or on the rocks. Got a favorite cocktail using Cacho? Send it in!!

Tasting Notes

Color: Deep reddish-brown.

Aroma: Three layers of whiskey caramels, honey, and BBQ.

Flavor: Broad and densely packed with light sweetness from grain and honey supporting big chili notes. On the finish, the heat builds pleasurably for a couple of seconds then recedes leaving a slight tingle. 

Available in 750 ml.  Bottled at 40.0% ABV.

Old Fashioned Goat

Orange Slice

Preserved Cherry

2 dashes Angostura Bitters

2 oz Cacho de Cabra

Orange Zest

While the original Old Fashioned calls for a sugar cube, you can probably skip that here since Cacho brings some honey to the party.

Muddle the Orange, Cherry, and Bitters in an Old Fashioned glass. Add a large ice cube and pour over the Cacho de Cabra then give it a quick stir. Toss in the orange zest and enjoy, the old fashioned way!
