May 18: Herradura Double Barrel Reposado Pairing at WEST

On Wednesday, May 18th, WEST Restaurant & Lounge is hosting an exclusive Herradura Double Barrel Reposado Pairing, featuring six small plates paired with six tequila cocktails. As guests admire the view from the Penthouse Level of the Hotel Angeleno, they’ll enjoy dishes prepared by West Executive Chef Manuel D. Medina and cocktails by John Yuhico. As an added bonus, the event will feature a live agave shaving demonstration.

Herradura Double Barrel Reposado is made in the town of Amatitán, Jalisco, in the heart of Mexico’s tequila region. Every bottle of Herradura begins with 100% Blue Weber agave, descended from the original agave that grew on the Hacienda in 1870. To create the Double Barrel Reposado, the tequila is first rested in toasted oak barrels for 11 months (9 more than category standards), giving the reposado its deep copper color and a notable smoothness. The tequila is then matured for an additional month in a new, toasted oak barrel. The handmade barrel, specially created to augment aging, allows the spirit to develop additional depth of character and flavor, including notes of cooked agave, dried fruits and sweet brown spice.
