Made from 100% agave, each agave is planted further apart, giving them more room to grow to full maturity before harvest. Slow roasted for 72-hour cycles and matured for eight months in American white-oak barrels. Bottled at 38%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: An inviting aroma of mellow lemon citrus notes and spice layers with touches of ripe stone fruit.

Palate: Incredibly soft and elegant hints of dark chocolate, vanilla and light cinnamon.

Finish: Silky, warm finish with an essence of dried fruit, nuts and a touch of caramel apple.

Named after its founder Don Julio González, Don Julio Tequila was founded in Jalisco when González began distilling tequila in 1942 - he was 17 at the time. He named his distillery La Primavera which translates to “the Springtime”. Initially made to share with his close friends and family, the popularity and quality of his tequila spread and gave room for a business to grow. For González’s 60th birthday in 1985, his sons created a tequila in his name, Don Julio, and it was this tequila that launched the company in 1987. At the time, tequila bottles were usually tall and hidden beneath the table, González designed a shorter bottle so his guests could still see each other across the table, seeing his tequila as worthy of being placed on the table rather than under it. Don Julio González passed away in 2012, and the brand has been fully owned by Diageo since 2014.
