Florida Representative for Carlos Santana’s “Super Natural Casa Noble Margarita” Contest to Be Judged in Naples
Judges Choose Naples to Determine ‘Best’ from an Impressive List of ‘Noble Places’
Later this year Carlos Santana will summon nine bartenders to Las Vegas Nevada to compete for the title of Carlos Santana’s “Super Natural Casa Noble Margarita” and the judging for the State of Florida representative has been announced.
Naples has been chosen to host the State of Florida judging that will determine one of those nine states that will send bartenders to compete in front of Santana using the tequila that not only got his endorsement but that is also from his home town of Jalisco.
It’s an easy fit according to Carlos Santana. “Casa Noble and my family have the same origin, and my family roots date back to the 1700’s in Jalisco”, said Santana who will be coming to Florida for three concert dates later this month.
That passion, pride and quality commitment has spanned 200 years and 7 generations of tequila production for the Hermosillo family. The Casa Noble family of Single Estate Certified Organic includes Casa Noble Crystal, Casa Noble Reposado and Casa Noble Añejo Tequilas— have a rich history establishing them as one of the finest ultra premium spirits portfolios in the world.
Nine states from a total of 13 market regions will be represented in the final quest for the winning recipe in Carlos Santana’s “Super Natural Casa Noble Margarita”, Texas (Dallas, Houston, Austin), Florida (Tampa, Miami) California (Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco) Nevada (Las Vegas) Massachusetts (Boston) New York (NYC) and Colorado (Denver) and Illinois (Chicago).

Florida’s contest will have six recipes as finalists selected from a total of only 31 qualifying accounts in the state that are based within in the metro areas of Tampa, Orlando and Miami and Naples was selected as ‘neutral turf’ for the judging.
Not only will BeverageUnderground.com be on-location for the event but Larry ‘Smokey’ Genta of Naples has been selected, along with representatives of Infinium Spirits to do the ‘blind’ judging. Infinium Spirits represents Casa Noble nationwide as well as other luxury spirits like Dan Aykroyd’s Crystal Head Vodka and the aged to perfection Zaya Rum.
“I proudly accept and look forward to being the ‘host’ Judge for the State of Florida Competition for Carlos Santana’s Casa Noble Tequila in the search for his “Supernatural Margarita“, said Genta. “I’m especially glad it is in Naples and on a Monday when bartenders and industry people can see and taste this really great Tequila” added Genta.
All ingredients will be obtained and selected Bartenders will made the exact recipes to exact measurements and a panel of judges, including Genta will taste all six…and select the best Casa Noble based ‘Super Natural Margarita’ to represent the State in the Las Vegas showdown.
‘This is the way Infinium does it…fair, honest and accurate. We’ll have no prior knowledge of the drinks or where they came from prior to tasting” said Genta who also has been a judge for several contests including Tampa Area USBG (United State Bartenders Guild) events in the past.
