Maintaining its commitment to provide small-batch tequila experiences to discerning spirits drinkers Tequila Herradura, crafted by the last true tequila-producing hacienda on the planet has announced the release of their 4th Coleccion de la Casa, Reserva 2015 – Directo de Alambique (Directo). This limited release is made from 100% blue agave, without barrel aging, to reflect a fresh tequila flavor.
This small-batch tequila is produced using 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. It’s then bottled direct from the still at 110 proof, preserving the fresh, flavor of tequila. 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.

“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.”
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 special editions, Master Distiller Maria Teresa Lara, one of the only female Master Distillers in the tequila industry, was the force behind Directo de Alambique.
Coleccion de la Casa, Reserva 2015 – Directo de Alambique will be available in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York and Texas for a limited time beginning December 1 at a suggested retail price of $89.99. Directo will be available nationwide for a limited time beginning January 2016.
