Tequila Herradura, founded in 1870, is one of the oldest and most respected producers of tequila.
Located and produced on the heart of Mexico's tequila region, in the tiny town of Amatitán, Jalisco, Tequila Herradura is all-natural and estate bottled 100% blue agave tequila.
Tequila Herradura received its name when Aurelio López Rosales was out inspecting the agave fields and saw a glint of light on the dusty ground. When he picked up the gleaming object, it was a horseshoe that has caught the light. Since the horseshoe ('Herradura' in Spanish) means good luck all over the world, Aurelio was inspired to give this name to his excellent tequila.
Carefully crafted using traditional methods, such as cooking the agave in clay ovens, fermenting naturally with wild yeast and aged in virgin American white oak barrels. Tequila Herradura delivers a unique sensorial experience in each of its various expressions. This is the primary reason Tequila Herradura is synonymous with success and quality since its beginning.
Herradura has been proudly producing this delicious tequila since 1962. Barrelling for two years in oak (twice as long as suggested by the category standards).
In 2014, Herradura Añejo won the following awards:

- 2014 Los Angeles International Spirits Competition Bronze Medal
