So­phis­ti­cated Tequila Ex­pe­ri­ence

SLOW Magazine - - Must Get -

Casa Her­radura, one of Mex­ico’s most his­toric and renowned tequila pro­duc­ers, was the first tequila pro­ducer to launch a Re­posado tequila glob­ally in 1974. Crafted by Maria Teresa Lara López, Re­posado is made from the finest blue Weber agave. Tra­di­tional, sus­tain­able, and ar­ti­sanal pro­duc­tion meth­ods are used: Slowly cook­ing the agave hearts in tra­di­tional clay ovens and fer­ment­ing nat­u­rally with air­borne wild yeast. The vari­ant is then aged to per­fec­tion in medi­um­char Amer­i­can white oak bar­rels for 11 months and is dou­ble-dis­tilled. With hints of cooked agave, anise, dried fruit, and spices on the nose, Re­posado is sweet­smelling with a smooth fin­ish. Her­radura is the first brand to age tequila in wood, and this com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lence has earned Her­radura nu­mer­ous awards, in­clud­ing more than 16 gold medals for taste and qual­ity.
