Brown-Forman’s Casa Herradura has launched Coleccion de la Casa, Reserva 2013 Cognac Cask Finish Reposado , a small-batch tequila crafted by its master distiller Maria Teresa Lara. The tequila is made using traditional production methods and a proprietary fermentation from naturally-occurring wild yeast. Herradura ages the tequila in American oak barrels for 11 months, then transfers it to French oak casks sourced from France’s Cognac region for three more months. The release is the second of Herradura’s small-batch tequilas; the first was a 2012 Port Cask Finished Reposado that came out last spring. The Cognac Cask Finish Reposado will be available throughout the U.S in November at a suggested retail price of $89.99 for a 750-ml. bottle.
