Tequila Herradura has announced the release of the fourth Coleccion de la Casa, Reserva 2015 – Directo de Alambique (Directo).
Directo is made from 100% blue agave, without barrel aging.
This small-batch tequila is produced using only the finest blue agave plants. It is then fermented with natural yeast amid the warm breeze and citrus trees of Casa Herradura, a process entirely unique in the industry, the company says.
Finally, it is bottled direct from the still at 110 proof.
The result is a crystal-clear tequila with notes of sweet agave, green pepper, citrus, and a hint of herbs and spice, the company says.
“It’s an ideal expression for discerning tequila drinkers looking to enjoy the crisp, vibrant flavor of Herradura,” said Liz Edwards, Senior Brand Manager for Tequila Herradura.
Coleccion de la Casa, Reserva 2015 – Directo de Alambique is available in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York and Texas for a limited time, at a suggested retail price of $89.99 for a 750-ml. bottle.
Directo will be available nationwide for a limited time beginning January 2016.
