July, 3 Few moments are as meaningful to tequila as this image: the planting of the “hijuelos” or baby agave plants. Casa Noble uses compost made 100% from our tequila production residues, that provides nutrients, helps the soil retain moisture, and many other benefits. Our Organic certification is a valuable tool that helps our handcrafted, luxury tequilas start in the best way possible: blue agave plants that are nourished, cared and grown in a natural, sustainable
way. This is passion for perfection.

July, 10 Baby agaves, called “hijuelos” (ee-huu-elos) grow from the mother agave plant’s root (also called rhizomes). This is how they start their life: attached to their mothers, to be detached later and re-planted so they can continue to grow on their own. At Casa Noble we take extremely good care of our babies, planted in organically enriched soil. Nature and our jimadores will take care of the rest. This is Passion for Perfection.

Santana’s Casa Noble Tequila is now in the Philippines

With the traceable influence of Mexico in the country’s cultural fiber (think of the Manila-Acapulco trade during the Spanish colonial era), it’s small wonder that Filipinos celebrate Cinco de Mayo—or at least use the date as a warrant to munch nachos and tacos, or drown in Mexico’s inebriating gift to the world: tequila.

According to model Borgy Manotoc, despite the notoriety of tequila among younger drinkers, it still boasts itself as one of the world’s best alcoholic beverages.

“Tequila’s got a very bad rep sometimes because everyone sees it as just a shot of alcohol and some young people have a bad experience because they say it’s a little bit difficult [to drink],” he said.

“But I think when they understand the product and they understand the flavor of the tequila, they will start to really appreciate the taste, and not just the fact na medyo matapang siya,” Manotoc added. He also said that tequila has a “flowery” taste that people will only appreciate once they start to get acquainted with the said drink.

Tequila is an alcoholic drink produced from blue agave plants growing at the culturally-rich state of Jalisco in Mexico. Aside from drinking it straight or served on a shot glass rimmed with salt with a slice of lime, it is also mixed with orange liqueur, lemon and lime juice to make famous margarita.

So how is tequila made?

These blue agave plants take more than a decade to fully mature and when they do, they are taken out of the grown and their leaves removed until the core or piña is left. Next, they are taken to the distillery and cut before they are loaded into special furnaces to roast the piñas. After cooking them for about thirty-six hours, the cooked cores are shredded and the juice is extracted, which will be fermented for five days.

After fermentation, the tequila is distilled twice, or thrice in other distillers, to produce the nice aroma of the blue agave plant and at the same time, for the tequila acquire its pure taste. While most of tequilas are ready after distillation, some of them are aged for two months to obtain the golden color. However, distillers such as Casa Noble age some their tequilas for one year, while others last up until five years, which makes it the oldest tequila in the market.

Casa Noble’s variations include Cyrstal, Reposado, and Anejo. Photo source: casanoble.blogspot.com.

At a recent product launch of Casa Noble held at the Opus Lounge in Resorts World, Manila, tequila aficionados gathered together to enjoy shots of the premium drink. Borgy, who was one of the event’s guests, says, “Casa Noble is all about the product. There are no shortcuts in the production. Everything is done to the highest quality. This is the same family that’s making tequila and growing agave plants from the same place for 300 years, so they have really perfected their craft in a way that nobody else has done.”

Interestingly, Carlos Santana, a Mexican, multiple Grammy Award-winner, and iconic Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, has joined the Board of Casa Noble and is now one of the owners of the brand.

“It is the only tequila in the world that is [certified] USDA organic. It means that on the entire property that produces the product, there are no chemicals used, no pesticide, and even vehicles that come in should have their tires sprayed so they don’t pollute the property,” he furthered. Manotoc also serves as the brand’s ambassador to the Philippines.

Casa Noble is brought to the Philippines by Calvo Imports, Inc., owned by the same people that brought Pacific Xtreme Combat (PXC). Watch PXC at AKTV, TV5′s sports and lifestyle channel.

Posted: 05/04/2012 7:29 am

It happens every year. I get a bunch of tequilas or mezcals or agave nectars or orange liqueurs in the mail. I think, well, this margarita-centric stuff doesn’t fit with the in-depth exploration I’m working on of schnapps made in the greater West Virginia area, or the pastrami-flavored vodka review I have to write for next week. I’ll leave it until Cinco de Mayo. Inevitably, before I know it, it’s Cuatro de Mayo, and instead of writing about tequila or anything vaguely Mexican, I’m working on a piece about chocolate chip cookie-infused aquavit, or the best armagnacs to drink with Cheez Doodles.

So, without further ado, here’s a quick little shout-out to some of the best tequilas and related products I’ve had the pleasure to sample over the last year, and to the PR flaks who faithfully remind me about Cinco de Mayo starting in, oh, November or so.

Here’s to you, Casa Noble Tequila, whose blanco, reposado and añejo are all among the finest tequilas you can quaff. My favorite is the añejo, triple distilled and aged in French limousin oak barrels, with a damn near perfect balance of vanilla, agave and earthy/grassy flavors and a long, smooth finish that will leave you going “Aaaahhhhhh….” And the bottles are as attractive as the tequila inside is delicious.

Muchas gracias, Dr. Adolfo Murillo, creator of Tequila Alquimia, one of the best tequilas you’ve probably never heard of. Certified organic and housed in bottles made from recycled glass, Alquimia is both earth-friendly and mouth-friendly. The blanco may be the best I’ve tried all year, with soft anise and grape notes that make it delicious both in a margarita and sipped on its own. The reposado is a stunner as well, with strong vegetal, vanilla and pepper notes. And the añejo is simply out of this world — soft and velvety, caressing your taste buds and doing everything but singing Mexican folk ballads softly in your ear. If you see Alquimia at your local watering hole or liquor store, don’t hesitate. One sip and you’ll be thanking Dr. Murillo too.

A hearty ¡ay, Dios mio! to Patron, the groundbreaking premium brand whose Gran Patron Burdeos will run you in the neighborhood of $500-700. Patron blew my mind and broke me out of the Cuervo Gold ghetto when I first tried it in the ’90s. But after the distillery was moved in 2002, its quality and reputation suffered, to the point where it’s de rigeur for serious tequila fans to either ignore or belittle the brand. This super-high end bottling, finished in vintage Bordeaux barrels and housed in stunning handcrafted black walnut boxes, has had its share of both ecstatic and horrific reviews. I’m closer to the ecstatic camp. It’s definitely an odd one, with the Bordeaux barrels giving it flavors of dark fruits and more intense caramel notes than you’d find in a typical tequila. But of course, it’s not supposed to be a typical tequila, is it?

Big Cinco de Mayo props to Milagro Tequila, who sent me one of the spiffier gift packs I’ve gotten in recent memory. The “World’s Freshest Margarita” kit included a Boston shaker, a lime press — essential for margarita making! — Milagro’s own Silver blanco tequila and agave nectar, fresh limes and a beautifully bound hardcover recipe book, containing recipes for margaritas and much more, in a handsome tote bag to carry it all. Is it the world’s freshest margarita? Well, I guess it’s in a tie with every other margarita made with fresh squeezed lime juice. But it’s tasty, that’s for sure — Milagro Silver makes a fine margarita. On its own, it’s got a lovely, herbal and slightly mineral flavor with a bit of citrus on the entry. As a mixer, it’s full-bodied enough to stand up to whatever you throw in with it.

As for the agave nectar included in the kit, I much prefer sweetening my margs with orange liqueur (or triple sec or curaçao), which complements the agave in the tequila in a way that simply adding more agave in the form of nectar can’t. Which is why I tip my chapeau to Mandarine Napoleon. Sure, it’s French, but your margarita definitely won’t mind. Most orange liqueurs use a neutral spirit base, but Napoleon, like Grand Marnier, uses a cognac base, which gives the whole shebang a much deeper, richer and more complex flavor. It also uses Sicilian mandarine oranges rather than the more traditional curaçao oranges. It’s a liqueur, so it’s a little sweet and syrupy when consumed on its own, but it makes for a mean mixer, comparable to Grand Marnier itself. And legend has it that this stuff was first created for Napoleon himself. Pretty cool, right?

Mixing rum and tequila? Sounds gross, right? But not if you flavor your margarita with Rhum Clement Creole Shrubb orange liqueur, which uses Clement’s superlative rhum agricole (meaning rum distilled from cane juice rather than molasses) as a base. It’s got a beautiful, zesty orange flavor that’s lighter and less sweet than most triple secs, and a finish that’s got a lot of wood as well as orange notes. I wouldn’t have believed that it could work in a margarita… until I tried it. A big “¡Saludos, amigos!” to Martinique’s finest.

And last but not least, a misty-eyed “Yo recuerdo, querido” to El Teddy’s, the legendary and long-gone Tribeca watering hole. As a callow youth in the mid ’90s, uneducated in the way of drinking for quality instead of quantity, El Teddy’s opened my eyes to the magic of margaritas. Cocktails with fresh ingredients and premium spirits weren’t as ubiquitous back then as they are today. To taste a ‘rita made with fresh-squeezed lime juice and a tequila that wasn’t Cuervo Gold — and shaken in a shaker rather than frozen in a blender, no less! — was an eye-opening and mind-expanding experience that will stay with me until the last sip of tequila crosses my lips. I miss that place to this day.

¡Tenemos que beber ahora! Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone!

Celebrated 200-Year-Old Boutique Distillery Ready to Shine with a Year of Promotions and Events

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Casa Noble Tequila is looking to 2012 as a year of new beginnings. With a series of promotions and events, the organic tequila company has set its eyes on new markets and campaigns for 2012. Casa Noble will see changes to its social media platforms including regular updates on the company’s Facebook and website, as well as the addition of a newsletter, previously reserved for the beverage industry, which will soon be available to fans who sign up at www.casanoble.com. Alongside these changes, Casa Noble will release a new ad campaign featuring the newest edition to the Casa Noble family, Carlos Santana. The Casa Noble mobile app – available on iPhone with the Android platform coming soon – will also get a face lift with the inclusion of cocktail recipes and featured dishes that pair with the tequila in new and innovative ways. Soon to be announced promotions around the United States will bring new eyes and fans to the long celebrated brand.

Casa Noble CEO Jose Hermosillo said, “Casa Noble has been growing exponentially, even in such a competitive market with the large multi-national companies that invest millions in advertising, and so many non-industry newcomers with deep pockets who have found the tequila business so appealing. I believe our commitment to quality and the attention to every detail is key to Casa Noble, which has made tequila fans and high quality spirit aficionados take notice.”

2011 proved to be a milestone year for Casa Noble when BusinessWeek, who previously named Casa Noble as one of the “World’s Best-Tasting Tequilas,” gave the brand’s Reposado top marks – 5/5 stars – in their December 2011 issue, putting it above all others in the taste test. Another highlight of 2011 was the addition of music icon Carlos Santana who joined the board and came on as one of the owners of the company. This exciting change to the organization allows Santana to be involved in the continued development of the brand which is already recognized as one of the finest handcrafted spirits in the world.

Hermosillo, commenting on the shared long-term commitment to the continued growth of the brand, said, “With Carlos becoming a part of the family last year, we see 2012 as a chance to position Casa Noble as the ultra-premium tequila of choice, we are very excited to see what is ahead.”

A renowned boutique distillery, Casa Noble represents the pride, passion, and quality commitment of more than 200 years and over 7 generations of tequila production. The Casa Noble family of Single Estate Organic tequilas — Crystal, Reposado, and Anejo — has a rich history that has earned them a position as one of the finest ultra premium spirits portfolios in the world. Casa Noble’s handcrafted tequilas are exported to over 23 countries worldwide and currently available in premium retail outlets, exclusive restaurants, distinguished bars and lounges and destination hotels Nationwide in the U.S.

Casa Noble is produced on a family owned distillery that can trace its roots back to 1776 along the hillsides of Jalisco, Mexico surrounded by citrus and mango trees, which are integral to the tequila’s unique taste profile. The tequila is harvested, distilled and bottled on the private family estate that boasts over 6,500 acres of land and more than one million blue agave plants.

Stay tuned for upcoming announcements of events and promotions over the next few months.

A total of sixteen companies were given a special award that recognizes Mexican entrepreneurs whose groundbreaking work is opening doors to new borders and markets. Mr. Carlos Hernandez, President of Casa Noble Tequila received from the hands of Mexican President this singular honor, as Casa Noble became the only boutique distillery to receive such award ever.

With trade to China from Mexico estimated to reach 200 billion dollars this Year, the potential for tequila in Asia looks extremely attractive, and with the outstanding leadership in branding and marketing strategies, Casa Noble stands out as a definitive leader once again.

LOS ANGELES CA, JUNE 9 – Casa Noble Tequila is set to expand into Asia/Pacific region with the appointment of Liberty Lighthouse Group as the exclusive broker for the territory. “Edward (Ted) McDonnell Jr. is known for his keen business experience and strong brand building skills; he and his organization are going to be strong partners as the brand rolls out in Asia,” said Jose Hermosillo, CEO and Founder, Casa Noble Tequila.

The Liberty Lighthouse Group will initially be introducing Casa Noble to China, Macau, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, S. Korea, Micronesia & Commonwealth Northern Mariana Nations, Australia and New Zealand. Following that the group will focus on Thailand, Philippines and India.

“These countries are important for the brand – in terms of volume and placement. This is a strategic step in growing the brand as the category continues to gain share in these markets, continued Hermosillo.

Casa Noble will now be warehoused in Singapore for regional distribution with the Oceanus AP company, under the guidance of Noni Mangubat and Edward (Ted) McDonnell Jr.
