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.

Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.
The strongest Tequila available for sale clocks in at 75% ABV (150 proof). This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but drinking huge amounts of this spirit is likely te-quil-a.
Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.
In general, price of Tequila goes up with age, so añejos and extra añejos will be the most expensive and blancos the cheapest.

If the Tequila bottle label does not state that it’s manufactured from 100% Blue Agave, then, by default, that Tequila is a Mixto (manufactured from 51% Blue Agave).
