Tequila Herradura is expanding its ultra-premium portfolio with the launch of Tequila Herradura Legend, a first-of-its-kind Añejo tequila.
Tequila Herradura Legend is made from the finest 100% blue agave, naturally fermented, distilled and then matured for 14 months in heavily charred, new American White Oak barrels.
The result is a tequila with an incredibly rich, deep colour and a luxurious, velvety smooth taste.
“At Tequila Herradura, we are focused on bringing Mexico’s greatest export – tequila – to the world,” said John Tichenor, Managing Director, Tequila Herradura.
“Known for innovating in the tequila category-creating both the Reposado and the Extra-Añejo category – Tequila Herradura Legend is the next first-of-its-kind tequila to come out of Casa Herradura.”
Tequila Herradura Legend also marks the first release under a new generation of Casa Herradura’s female legacy. Karinna Enriquez Hurtado currently serves as Master Taster at the historic Casa Herradura in Amatitán, Mexico and joins a decades-long heritage of women leading Tequila Herradura from barrel to bottle.
“Legend’s one-of-a-kind production process is truly what makes this product unique in the tequila category,” said Hurtado, Casa Herradura Master Taster.
“By developing specialized barrels featuring these deeper grooves, we allow the liquid to touch additional layers of oak for a longer period of time, creating an Añejo with an extra rich, smooth flavour.”
