Don Julio founded his own distillery in 1942 and since then has aspired to produce Mexico’s finest handcrafted tequilas by perfecting traditional methods.The agave cultivated to produce Don Julio’s tequilas requires seven to ten years to reach full maturity. Following traditional methods, the agave is slowly cooked in masonary ovens to obtain a juice that is subsequently fermented and double distilled. Heritage, tradition and over 60 years of experience result in a range of tequilas with a smooth, consistent and distinguished taste. Don Julio Anejo is aged for 18 months in American oak barrels to impart the tequila with a lime, grapefruit and mandarin aroma. Its flavour is smooth with a touch of butterscotch and results in a bright, lightly spiced finish with the essence of wild honey. Don Julio Anejo is best experienced in a sniffer or over ice.
