Tequila Herradura, a tequila brand produced by Casa Herradura, invited Rojo Mexican Grill to visit their distillery in Mexico to study their process of making tequila, from harvest to fermentation, distillation to bottling and to select their own unique barrel.
After several taste tests, they selected a 100 percent agave, double-barreled Resposado tequila with hints of honey, cinnamon and vanilla. Rojo hopes to share this limited quantity with patrons until the barrel runs dry.
