Our barrel of Herradura tequila has arrived! Fortunately for you, the actual tequila is in numbered bottles with our personal imprint subtly added to the label, so you don’t have to buy the whole barrel to give it a try. After a journey of six thousand miles – four thousand to travel to and from Mexico to select this barrel of Herradura Reposado, and the two thousand the barrel traveled on its own – you’d think the journey might be over. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. If you’ve been following our little story about how fine drink is a journey, you know that Joe (the owner) and his sidekick Steve (aka “Señor Gracias”) made a trip to Amatitán, Mexico, to personally select a specially-aged barrel of Herradura’s amazing Reposado. But that’s just the beginning of the journey. The next part of the journey is YOURS. First, a little journey to one of the outlets that have this amazing tequila in stock. Then the journey of enjoying it with your friends. And this is just the first of many journeys we’ll be taking. As promised, we launched HandSelectedSprits.com in May to record the trips we’ll be taking around the world to find the best wines and spirits, and when possible, bring them home to you. So this barrel is really just the beginning. Stop by and select your own numbered bottle. They’re going faster than we expected! And stay tuned for news of future trips. Joe already made a trip to ten California vineyards last month, and we’ll be visiting Woodford Reserve Distillery in Versaille Kentucky this summer. Join us on the journeys!
