“We have been exploring this partnership for some time. This is a natural synergy; Casa Noble Tequila is deeply rooted in the pursuit of quality, craftsmanship and tradition. Santana through his life and his music has dedicated himself to those same values which are the key motivators behind this alignment,” says Hermosillo.
“We have come together because I love the Tequila,” Carlos Santana tells BourbonBlog.com. “Passion, dedication and integrity is what attracted me to Casa Noble Tequila. I feel at home with my new family at Casa Noble. They strive for excellence and don’t take shortcuts. Just like the music of Santana, one note or one drop…they are the same thing. You have to feel each note from your heart. Casa Noble and my family have the same origin— Jalisco, Mexico. My family roots date back to the 1700’s in Jalisco. My father is a Huichol Indian. When I visited the distillery, I immediately felt spiritually connected to the Hermosillo family and Casa Noble.”
While the details of the deal were not made public, the partnership for Mr. Santana shares ownership in the company and a long-term commitment to the continued growth of Casa Noble and its family of fine ultra premium tequilas. “We anticipate Santana’s fans all over the world will share not only his passion for music but also his passion for Casa Noble Tequila,” said Hermosillo.
