Margaritas are simple drinks to make for cocktail parties, backyard barbecues and informal get-togethers. They’re also simple drinks to make organic. Start by replacing your off-the-shelf tequila with organic tequila. If you want a brand that combines history and quality in an organic tequila, try Casa Noble’s line of organic tequilas.

Casa Noble’s tequilas are all USDA-certified organic, distilled from organically grown, hand-harvested blue agave plants on a family-owned estate in the Mexican state of Jalisco. Casa Noble’s farming and production practices have changed little since the distillery opened its doors in 1776. For more than 200 years, this family-owned company has grown its blue agave plants without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides, relying only on the nutrients in the volcanic soil to enrich the plants. Wild yeast cultivated at the distillery also allows Casa Noble to ferment its plants without the use of chemical additives. While other tequilas are distilled only twice, Casa Noble’s organic tequilas are distilled three times, producing a high-quality product.

Casa Noble makes several variations of its organic tequila. The Crystal organic tequila is the company’s standard tequila. Casa Noble also makes the Reposado organic tequila, which is Crystal organic tequila aged for about 364 days in oak barrels, and the Añejo organic tequila, a complex organic tequila that contains hints of chocolate, coffee beans and oak.

Casa Noble's tequilas are sold in 41 states. Enter your zip code here to find a location near you. Each tequila in Casa Noble's collection is available in either a 750 mL or 50 mL bottle. A 750 mL bottle ranges in price from $40 to $60, and a 50 mL bottles ranges in price from $7 to $8.
