Herradura Directo de Alambique
2015 DIRECTO DE ALAMBIQUE TEQUILA, UNCOMPROMISED.
At 110 proof without barrel aging, “Directo” is a crystal-clear tequila with robust notes of sweet agave, green pepper, citrus, and a hint of herbs and spice. Taken together, these notes provide a smooth, complex, and prolonged presence. A bold tequila expression for true tequila lovers.
This small-batch tequila is produced using only the finest blue agave plants, harvested at the peak of perfection. It is then fermented with natural yeast amid the warm breeze and citrus trees of Casa Herradura, a process entirely unique in the industry. Finally, it is bottled direct from the still at 110 proof, preserving the fresh, youthful flavor of Herradura’s beautiful tequila, a taste unchanged since 1870. The result is a crystal-clear tequila with robust notes of sweet agave, green pepper, citrus, and a hint of herbs and spice. Taken together, these notes provide a smooth, complex, and prolonged presence. A bold tequila expression for true tequila lovers.
“We are delighted to introduce Coleccion de la Casa, Reserva 2015 – Directo de Alambique to our Tequila enthusiasts in the United States just in time for the holidays,” said Liz Edwards, Senior Brand Manager for Tequila Herradura. “The fourth edition in Tequila Herradura’s small-batch tequila series is 110 proof and straight from the still. It’s an ideal expression for discerning tequila drinkers looking to enjoy the crisp, vibrant flavor of Herradura.”
Tequila Herradura has a strong reputation as an industry innovator and is credited with introducing the first-ever Reposado in 1974 and Extra Anejo tequila in 1995. Coleccion de la Casa is a great example in the industry of how four of the primary sources of flavor– agave, water, fermentation, and distillation, absent of maturation impacts the character of the final product creating a totally new flavor profile. As with the other three editions, Master Distiller Maria Teresa Lara, one of the only female Master Distillers in the tequila industry, was the force behind Directo de Alambique.
“I am excited to share Coleccion de la Casa, Reserva 2015 – Directo de Alambique with consumers throughout the United States,” said Ruben Aceves, International Director for Brand Development and Tequila Herradura’s Master Taster. “Directo is personally one of my favorite expressions of Tequila Herradura – straight from the pot still with no aging.”
