Analysis

Herradura was cool before Tequila was cool. For nearly 150 years Herradura has been crafting the real article — 100% agave Tequila. The iconic square bottle was a very welcomed sight, as it is today, to those in the know seeking quality spirits. The world has caught up to real Tequila but Herradura has not changed. Casa Herradura still uses only the most mature blue agave and artisanal methods, such as slow cooking the agave in traditional clay ovens and fermenting naturally with wild yeast. It's simply a classic. Their Silver is aged in cask for a period of 45 days. Typically Tequila producers bottle their blancos without any wood aging. The Herradura method delivers a silver Tequila with notes of vanilla and oak. You can decide if you prefer your blanco with or without wood.

How to Enjoy

This is a classic cocktail Tequila performing well in all of the classic Tequila cocktails we love.
