Case Noble is debuting a rare, limited release luxury line of tequilas called Colección del Fundador. The first edition of this collection is launching this month with Alta Belleza, a Single Barrel Extra Añejo finished in rare wine barrels.
Alta Belleza begins with Casa Noble’s Single Barrel Extra Añejo, made from only hand-harvested 100% Blue Weber Agave, grown in rich volcanic soil. Triple distilled for utmost purity, the liquid is aged slowly in new French White Oak barrels.
Taking this technique one step further, the finishing touch that separates Alta Belleza from any other tequila on the market is its final rest for six months in T5 Tonnellerie Taransaud French Oak wine barrels previously used to age the exclusive Robert Mondavi To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon from the world-renowned To Kalon Vineyard.
Resulting in a sweet and bright taste that is perfectly balanced, the wine barrel imparts a distinctive, intense flavor, and delivers a beautiful copper-red tone to the liquid. Aromas of green apple and spice complement notes of cinnamon, toasted almond and sweet cooked agave in Alta Belleza’s unrivaled taste. To Kalon, which is Greek for the “highest beauty,” serves as the inspiration for the Alta Belleza name, which is Spanish for “high beauty.”
“I am thrilled to share the first volume of Colección del Fundador with the world,” said Jose “Pepe” Hermosillo, Casa Noble’s Founder and Maestro Tequilero. “At Casa Noble, we are proud to make tequilas that rival the finest spirits available, with a complexity that is unmatched. We’re dedicated to looking for groundbreaking techniques to create authentic yet unexpected tequilas that celebrate the spirit in a way it deserves.”
Casa Noble Alta Belleza Tequila will be priced at $1,200.00 and is a limited edition release with only 560 bottles being produced worldwide. Cheers!
