Tequila Herradura, a brand of Brown-Forman Corp., released the fourth Coleccion de la Casa Reserva 2015 — Directo de Alambique. Directo is made from 100 percent blue agave without barrel aging. Bottled at 110 proof, the small-batch tequila is hand-harvested and produced using agave grown at the Casa Herradura hacienda. It is fermented with natural yeast and bottled directly from the still. The clear tequila offers notes of sweet agave, green pepper, citrus and a hint of herbs and spaces, which provide a smooth, complex and prolonged presence, the company says. Available while supplies last in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York and Texas, the tequila is packaged in 750-ml bottles that retail for $89.99.
