Named after the term for the skilled men who select and harvest blue agave, El Jimador was introduced as a sister brand to Herradura in 1994. Aged for two months in ex-American whiskey casks, this 100% agave reposado is the most popular of the El Jimador range representing some 70% of production.
Originally launched as a 100% agave, but reduced to a mere mixto during the agave crisis of 1999/2000. This may have upset purists, but the company's accountants have never looked back as its keen price, coupled with Herradura's heritage, have made it one of Mexico's best-selling tequilas. Happily, since 2009, El Jimador Reposado has returned to being a 100% agave tequila.
