I know we’re all surprised it’s May already – where has this year gone? But let’s rejoice and celebrate that we’re finally getting to the spring and summer and enjoying the sunshine that is finally arrived. And with Cinco de Mayo tomorrow, celebrate with you favorite tequila. When was the last time you tasted tequila? Really tasted it, not just in a fruity too-sweet margarita that covers up the true tequila flavors, but perhaps on it’s own? It’s as varied and full of character as any wine and Casa Noble Organic Tequila is no different. Casa Noble harvests their agave at 14 years maturity, unlike other tequilas where the agave is picked between five and seven years. The extra time allows the tequila to develop a perfect water/sugar balance that ensures the final results are sublime every time. As a single estate grown and USDA certified organic tequila, they show a true commitment to quality, small batch manufacturing and sustainability. Each part of the tequila making process is meticulously controlled and monitored, right down to the hand blown bottles!
- Tequila Blanco : Is an un-aged silver tequila, with citrus notes that pair well with guacamoles, like this one from Cooks with Books! Or try it with a squeeze of lime straight into the tequila glass so you can sip and savor both flavors in tandem.
- Tequila Reposado: Spending 364 days in French White Oak barrels, this tequila has an herby and almost woody flavor to it. The French White Oak barrels lend caramel and vanilla notes to the tequila which dance on your tongue and finish smooth.
- Tequila Anejo: (our group’s favorite of the night) takes a whopping 14 years to produce! Like the Resposado aged in French Oak barrels, this tequila is almost like whiskey! So if you’re a whiskey fan, give this one a try! It’s nutty and spicy notes really glean themselves from the oak barrels and the aged tequila. It’s tantalizing and so much fun to taste. Everyone picked out different notes from this beauty it was quite a conversation starter!
