Tequila Casa Noble comes to us from the beautiful La Cofradia distillery in the lowland town of Tequila, Jalisco. Owner & founder Jose “Pepe” Hermosillo believes that patience is the most important quality in producing super-premium 100% agave Tequila.
All barrels at La Cofradia are imported from Cognac, France. The wood grain is tighter than American Oak, and production differs considerably. The staves(the individual pieces of wood which are shaped to form the barrel) are split, not buzz sawn and allowed to air dry for 3 years as opposed to being kiln dried. Patience, yes. Expensive, yes – very. Is it worth it? Absolutely.
With Casa Noble each step of the process is slowed down to ensure the mostelegant agave avors. From the 10-year old agaves to the extra 3rd distillation to the maximum aging in French White Oak, Pepe believes that quality is determined with time.
