About Herradura Legend Añejo Tequila
In 1870, Félix López began cultivating blue weber agave from the fields of the San José del Refugio Hacienda, situated in Jalisco, Mexico. Since then, expert jimadores have been nurturing the crop at the hacienda, which ultimately came to be known as Casa Herradura. Today, the agave growing Casa Herradura, which can take up to ten years to mature, grow up 2 meters high and weigh nearly 500 pounds, are descendants of the original agave growing on the estate in 1870.
Tequila Herradura Legend is a unique Añejo tequila made from the finest 100% blue agave, naturally fermented, distilled and then matured for 14 months in heavily charred, new American white oak barrels. These special barrels have been deeply grooved, exposing the tequila to more layers of toasted oak, as it patiently ages resulting in a special Añejo tequila with an incredibly rich, deep color and a luxurious and velvety smooth taste.
