By Christopher Null | November 24, 2009 |

I recently had the great opportunity to attend Tequila Herradura’s battle of eight Bay Area mixologists, each trying to outdo the other.

By Christopher Null | November 4, 2009 |

As the story goes, Antiguo de Herradura was a version of Herradura served only to guests of the Herradura estate, beginning in 1924.

We’ve covered Casa Noble’s ultrapremium tequilas on several occasions, but have only had run-ins with single barrel Joven offering twice, both courtesy of the New Hampshire Liquor Commission.
