Herradura is one of the truly iconic and most respected Tequila producers in the world. In operation since the 1870’s, they are the very last producing Hacienda in the world. They have constantly been at the forefront of innovation in the industry. While they may be best known for the bevy of critical accolades they’ve received for the distinctive flavor of their tequilas – they were the ones that introduced the world to the Reposado style.
I’m excited to announce that Herradura is continuing that tradition on innovation by working directly with me to craft a one-of-a-kind Tequila exclusively for us. First they threw open the doors and let me have the run of the barrel room. I tasted through over 20 barrels to find the perfect tasting profile for our experiment. That’s where we started.
Reposado (which means ‘rested’) is required by law to be aged in barrel for two months. Herradura takes it quite a bit further, letting their Reposado rest for a staggering 11 months. We did the same and then we took it even further – removing the Reposado from barrel and then rebarreling in a fresh bourbon barrel for another month.
If we had just let it sit, it’d technically be a 100% Blue Agave Anejo, but because of the extra treatment, we’ve got to label it as a Double Barrel Reserve.
This exclusive Herradura Nicholas Reserve Double Barrel is truly amazing. The extra wood and aging give it a rich amber color with notes of vanilla and butter on the nose. They also reduce the take from 240 to just 180 bottles. The palate features hints of vanilla, orange peel, cocoa nib and roasted coffee bean.

An absolute beauty. Perfect neat but versatile enough for the cocktail shaker!
Great by itself or with raw or grilled seafood.
