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 Reposado is carefully matured in oak barrels for 8 months to impart the tequila with subtle notes of pear, apple and lemon. Its flavour is smooth, light and sweet with hints of dark chocolate that has a warm finish with the essence of dried fruits. Experience this tequila side by side with fresh sangrita or in a tall glass mixed with lemon lime soda, a squeeze of lime and a dash of salt over ice cubes.
