Herradura Tequila

silverus_277_513NOM—the official Mexican standard —defines tequila as fermented and distilled blue agave juices obtained at the distillery from agave cores (piñas) grown in a designated Tequila Region.

By law, tequila must meet the following criteria:

  • It must be made from blue Weber agave grown and harvested only in the Mexican state of Jalisco, and designated areas of the states of Guanajuato, Michoacan, Nayarit or Tamaulipas.
  • It must be produced with no less than 35% alcohol by volume.
  • The label must read ‘hecho en México’ (made in México).

In 1902 Weber blue agave tequilana was given scientific classification, and cited as the agave of choice for tequila production.

The blue Weber agave at Casa Herradura has been propagated over the decades from the original agave plants that were growing here in 1870. Herradura keeps 25 million blue Weber agaves at every stage of maturity to guarantee production for years to come.
