Casa Noble Tequila Receives USDA Organic Certification
Hello Luxist community! I'm new to the team and looking forward to joining the conversation. There's probably more than you'd ever want to know about me here, but in short, I travel the world about a third of the time in search of what's cool, fascinating and fabulous. And the rest of the time ... well I do the same thing at home, either in New York City or in Litchfield County, CT.
So I will be toasting tonight with Casa Noble tequila, which just received USDA organic certification. It still doesn't quite qualify as health food, but Casa Noble's triple-distilled tequilas are made from the organically-grown slow roasted hearts of blue agave cactus, fermented without additives, and aged in French White Oak barrels. The Añejo rests two years in the barrels and it's smooth, woody and just a touch fruity. It retails for $59.95, and the beautifully designed purple decanter is an added bonus. In a nod to fine whiskey, Casa Noble also has started to offer a limited edition single barrel line. For this version, the Añejo rests for five years, and costs $129.95.
