About Herradura 150 Aniversario Extra Añejo Tequila
Herradura 150 Aniversario Extra Añejo Tequila is a one-time offering that honors 150 years of Casa Herradura. The extravagant tequila was made from the finest Blue Weber Agave and matured for 100 months in American White Oak barrels. We dare say it’s one of the best tequilas, and you’ll probably want to take two: one to savor and one to save for posterity.
Casa Herradura was established back in 1870 at Hacienda San Jose del Refugio, and they’re the last tequila-producing Hacienda on Earth – a bona fide treasure! They invented Reposado and Extra Añejo, so they know a thing or two about tequila. The Old Factory reminds us of the precious legacy, and even though the processes have modernized, the heart and soul remain. Casa Herradura has been using hand-built clay ovens for cooking agave for almost a century, and they crush the plant with a donkey-powered tahona wheel cut from a single piece of volcanic rock. It doesn’t get any better than this.
