And speaking of tequila…

Casa Noble TequilaI was at a Casa Noble Tequila Tasting event last month, and fell in love with their smokey Reposado, which happens to be a four-time Silver Medal Winner as well as a Gold Medal Winner in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The Beverage Tasting Institute awarded it a silver medal, the Mexican Tequila Academy awarded it Second Place, and Wine Enthusiast gives it “Best Tequila.”

What makes Casa Noble taste so good?  It begins as carefully selected mature blue agave plants, which have met strict requirements for water and sugar content. Casa Noble employs only traditional methods and slow-cooks the rich agave pinas for 38 hours in stone ovens. Then, using only the core and hearts of the agaves, they extract the sweet nectar. Casa Noble is certified USDA Organic and the fermentation process is 100% natural, followed by a triple distillation—and no morning headache. So you can feel good after you celebrate, as well as during. Happy Cinco de Mayo!
