August will mark the five-year anniversary of Casa Blanca Restaurant & Cantina and its unique mix of fresh Mexican food, cool décor, expansive patios, big-screen TVs, and good-time vibe. And with 140 brands of tequila in stock, the sipping’s outstanding, too, whether it’s a classic Margarita, an inventive specialty cocktail or a connoisseur’s super-premium añejo. In the past year, Casa Blanca has raised its already top-shelf tequila game, introducing a house tequila from the venerable Herradura tequila distillery. A Casa Blanca crew traveled to Herradura’s historic hacienda in Jalisco, the heart of tequila country, and spent the day with the master distiller, walking the agave fields, and watching the harvest and the distillation process. They sipped from several barrels and purchased their favorite, a reposado blend aged a year in American oak. The tequila was bottled and labeled at the hacienda, and Casa Blanca Herradura Reposado tequila was born. Since then, six staff have made three more trips to Herradura to purchase three more barrels. And recently Casa Blanca started a similar program with Patron, buying a barrel of extra añejo (aged 34 months) at a price that allows them to pour what could be a $50 shot for $15. The bar crew is inspired and ready to share stories - and new tequilas - to inspire you. Salud!
