Tierra Noble Añejo Tequila

Tierra Noble is made at La Estacada in Jalisco. La Estacada is the highest modern distillery on the planet at 7,200 feet of elevation. At this altitude, the low temperatures cause the cooked agave mash to ferment slowly with exclusively Montpelier wine yeast while preserving the aromatic richness of the agave. Completely unique in the tequila industry, Tierra Noble achieves a secondary malolactic fermentation – more common in chardonnay production than in spirits – after the initial alcoholic fermentation. 

This tequila is aged in French and American White Oak barrels for 24-30 months. 

Tequila Tasting Set Accolades
  • 2016 International Wine & Spirits Competition – Silver Medal

GREEN & BLACK’s Organic Dark Chocolate For Tequila Sampler Gift Set

Dark chocolate and tequila make a great match. The warming, complex nature of most tequila complements the luxurious, creamy texture of good chocolate.

The underlying sweetness and alcohol bite to tequila is offset extremely well by the more bitter and lingering flavor of dark chocolate.

Our organic Dark 70% chocolate from GREEN & BLACK’s is made from fine Trinitario cacao beans, providing complex fruit notes and intense bittersweet chocolate aromas.

GREEN & BLACK’S is a chocolate brand founded on sustainable and ethical cocoa sourcing principles.

A great addition to a tequila birthday gift for those looking to buy tequila samples online.

How To Enjoy

While you still have the flavours in your mouth after a sip of rum, take a piece of chocolate and let it slowly melt and add to the flavour. Then take another sip of rum and round it off.
