Herradura Reposado Tequila 70cl
Herradura Reposado Tequila is the tequila that created a category. This medium-bodied ‘rested’ aged tequila is made from 100% blue agave that’s roasted in traditional clay ovens and fermented using only local wild yeasts native to the area. It’s characterised by an elegant smoothness and a vanilla, almost buttery flavour that really highlights the element of cooked blue agave—definitely something you look for in a reposado aged tequila. It’s smooth and sweet from sip to swallow. On the nose, you’ll notice fruity notes, complemented by a bouquet of exotic spices like anise and cardamom. While colour is really not important in this category, a maturation in American oak for eleven months gives Herradura Reposado Tequila a coppery, amber hue that really adds to the look and feel of your shelf, just saying. What makes Herradura Reposado Tequila especially distinctive is how it sets itself up to be enjoyed in more than just a drink. The smooth integration of exotic flavours comes with a unique set of drinking opportunities. Try mixing it up with spices and herbs, such as ginger and dill, which help to carry the tequila’s warm notes through to the finish. The brand’s sommelier recommends pairing the mellow, oaky notes of Herradura Reposado Tequila with charcoal smoked baby beef, as the sweetness of the tequila is the perfect match to the smoky flavours of the meat. These are just suggestions, of course—it’s up to you to try Herradura Reposado Tequila in new and interesting ways to suit your own unique tastes.
