Casa Noble only makes 100% agave tequila from blue agave grown organically (certified USDA) on 650 hectares of their own land in the hills of Jalisco. A succulent native to Central America, it thrives in this arid climate and high altitude sites.

Mature agave plants (over ten years old) are handpicked and their hard cores (piñas) are slowly steamed in a stone oven for 38 hours to convert the carbohydrate (inulin) into fermentable sugars. The soft piñas are then pressed in a gentle screw mill that presses the sweet juices out. Casa Noble uses a screw mill instead of a roller mill. The latter, while resulting in less wastage, extracts more astringent flavours. The juice is then put into stainless steel fermentation vats where ambient yeasts carry out the fermentation. After fermentation, Casa Noble distils their tequila three times, a process that ensures an extra smooth drink. The Añejo has been aged in French oak for two years, a year more than required, to develop layers of complexity.

Aged tequilas show aromas developed from their maturation in oak, such as vanilla, almond, sweet melon and honey overlaying the gentle vegetal notes from the blue agave. Pale gold in colour, the Añejo has rich aromas of dried fruit. Toasted oak, spice, butterscotch and sweet cooked agave characters make this a delight to sniff and sip.

Country Of Origin: Mexico
Established in 1776 in the city of Tequila, Casa Noble was acquired in 1990 by Jose 'Pepe' Hermosillo, the seventh generation of his family to run a tequila distillery. The boutique distillery makes their tequila solely from blue agave grown organically (certified USDA) on 650 hectares of their own land in the hills of Jalisco. Mature agave plants (over ten years old) are hand-picked and their hard cores (piñas) are slowly steamed in a stone oven for 38 hours to convert the carbohydrate (inulin) into fermentable sugars. The soft piñas are then placed in a press to extract the sweet juices. To ensure quality, Casa Noble uses a gentle screw mill instead of a roller mill for this process. The latter, while resulting in less wastage, extracts more astringent flavours.

The juice is then put into stainless steel fermentation vats where ambient yeasts carry out the fermentation. After fermentation, they distil their tequila three times, a process that ensures an extra smooth drink. Casa Noble was named 'Tequila Producer of the Year' at the 2016 International Spirits Challenge, as well as the Blanco Tequila picking up numerous gold medals recently.
