Tequila is often considered a manly drink, but some of the world's finest is being made by a woman.
Herradura's Master Distiller Maria Teresa Lara created Herradura Coleccion de la Casa Tequila Reposado Reserva Cognac Cask Finish, a small-batch reposado tequila using naturally occurring wild yeast. After resting in medium-char American oak barrels for 11 months, it is then transferred to French oak casks that previously held Cognac for the final three months of aging. The two different types of barrels make for a very complex yet balanced flavor profile. The essence of the agave is present along with dried fruit and it finishes with a satisfying vanilla.
