Casa Herradura has been named "Distiller of the Year" in Wine Enthusiast magazine's 2007 Winestar Awards.
The company is one of the oldest producers of Tequila. It was founded in 1870 by Ambrosio Rosales and Aurelio Lopez.
Casa Herradura, located in the Mexican state of Jalisco, produces 100% blue agave tequila, and is all natural, estate grown and estate bottled.
It introduced the first reposado tequila in 1974, and later launched the first extra añejo, Seleccion Suprema. Herradura was purchased in January 2007 by Brown-Forman of Louisville, KY.
