Carefully crafted using traditional methods, Herradura is produced and estate bottled in the heart of Mexico's tequila region, using locally grown, high quality 100% blue agave. Aged for 11 months in virgin american white oak barrels to give a light golden colour with vanilla and cinnamon notes on the finish.
Tequila Herradura was founded in 1870 by Feliciano Romo, who established the location of the estate in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains – where Feliciano stumbled across a ray of light shimmering from a horseshoe on the ground – he sought to establish his dream based on this fortuitous find and named the brand Herradura, Spanish for ‘Horseshoe’.

Herradura Tequila is made from the finest blue agave, with an unrivalled patience and meticulous care. 100% blue agave, all- natural, estate grown and estate bottled.
