Mecha Uma was the stage for owner/chef Bruce Ricketts to showcase his super delicious, fresh, Japan-sourced seafood with a Mexican cooking style—perfect for a tequila event.
Casa Noble is critically acclaimed and acknowledged as one of the world’s finest ultra-premium tequila brands, made from 100 percent, organically grown “blue agave” and widely sought for its unique aroma, smooth taste and distinctly satisfying, velvety finish.
Casa Noble principals headed by Jake Jacob, vice president of Asia-Constellation brands, along with Joe Milner and Samantha Befus, attended the intimate dinner. Also present was Edwin Francis Ong of Global Noble International.
Ambassador Julio Camarena from Mexico was the guest of honor and he led the toasts with a Casa Noble Single Barrel bottle. Casa Noble is the first to develop a single barrel program in the tequila world, elevating the standard for a “reserve” or “limited edition” tequila.
At the dinner, I found out that music legend Carlos Santana is one of Casa Noble’s owners, and US President Barack Obama is an aficionado. This reminded me that a Santana-autographed guitar was auctioned off last year at the Red Charity Gala, won by CATS Motors owner Felix Ang.
