A brilliantly-aged Añejo Tequila from the masters as Herradura.
Tequila Herradura is a legendary Tequila producer celebrating one hundred and fifty years. Félix López acquired the distillery from Feliciano Romo in 1870. It remained a family-owned and operated business for more than one hundred and twenty-five years and was seminal in the creation of the reposado and Añejo styles. It has since become a part of Brown-Forman where it is the foundation of their Tequila production. In addition to their own super-premium brand, Located in Amatitán, Jalisco, Mexico, they produce several other brands, including El Jimador — the biggest-selling Tequila in Mexico — among others.
We all already now that Herradura produces high-quality Tequila, right? Well, Herradura Tequila Añejo is ample evidence of that. Let’s make that case starting with a single statistic.
To legally qualify as an Añejo, a Tequila must be aged a minimum of twelve months. That’s why you see a lot of really good Tequilas aged in the twelve to fourteen month range. But Herradura Tequila Añejo is aged more than twice as long as it needs to be — a full twenty-five months in American white oak. Want more proof? Over the last fifteen years it has won fifty-three major industry awards, with eighteen of them Gold Medals. That, my friends, is quality and consistency.

The aroma balances between earthy herbal notes, citrus, and sweet vanilla custard.

Taken neat, the flavor profile is complex with plenty of warm toasted oak providing the base notes for succulents, cilantro, tangerine zest, anchos, and flan.
The finish is medium length, herbal, and warm.
