Casa Noble in WatchTime Magazine

Tequilas for the Ages
The sublime extra-añejos are the Cognacs of Mexico
Richard Carleton Hacker

"...one of the most labor-intensive extra-añejos is Casa Noble Single Barrel, with its dark chocolate, brown spices, and smoky wood overtones. Triple-distilled and aged for five years in French oak, being a single-barrel bottling, only 300 bottles were produced this year. Indeed, extra-añejo is a tequila whose time has come."

Casa Noble Tequila and Interview with Jose Hermosillo

Casa Noble Tequila is in a class of flavor all its own and we learn why as BourbonBlog.com‘s Tom Fischer interviews Casa Noble Tequila CEO Jose Hermosillo at Tales of the Cocktail 2010 in the video below. We taste the Casa Noble Crystal, Reposado, and Añejo Tequilas.


Tales of the Cocktail Features Casa Noble Tequila

ales of the Cocktail® is an internationally acclaimed festival of cocktails, cuisine, and culture held annually in New Orleans, Louisiana. The event brings together the best and brightest of the cocktail community—award-winning mixologists, authors, bartenders, chefs and designers—for a five-day celebration of the history and artistry of making drinks. Each year offers a spirited series of dinners, demos, tastings, competitions, seminars, book signings, tours and parties all perfectly paired with some of the best cocktails ever made.

Casa Noble was proud to be included with their very own Tequila Tasting Room at the Tales of the Cocktail Festival. On Thursday, July 22, 2010 Casa Noble held an exclusive Journey of the Senses to educate the masters of mixology in The Bonnet Carre Room, of the Hotel Monteleone.

Hosted by the Co-Founder of Casa Noble, Jose Hermosillo, the rich heritage of Casa Noble came to life. Participants learned about the single-estate tequila - from the rich history to the production. The rare experience included sampling sweet cooked agave, feeling the actual limited addition French White Oak Barrels, and training senses to distinguish between the many distinct aromas of the Casa Noble Porfolio. Finally, sampling the exquisite Casa Noble Crystal, Reposado, and Anejo tequilas, how they were meant to be savored.  

The journey was topped off with a debut of two specially created USDA Certified Organic cocktails invented by two exclusive mixologists, and members of the USBG.
