Don Julio was founded in 1942, by Don Julio González-Frausto Estrada, who began distilling tequila at age 17. Don Julio tequilas are handcrafted in the Highlands of Jalisco, where the microclimate and mineral-rich clay soil allow the blue agave plant to flourish.
La Primavera exclusively produces Don Julio. Each bottle is distilled from 100% pure Blue Weber Agave which are harvested after 7-10 years by expert Jimadors. As highly respected craftsmen they handpick and then uniformly hand cut the agave pencas (leaves) from the piña to increase the quality of juice.
Then the piñas are then slowly steam-cooked in traditional masonry ovens for three days to release the sweet agave juice. It takes 8 pounds of blue agave to produce one bottle of tequila. Created by Master Distiller Enrique de Colsa in collaboration with the Lagavulin Distillery Manager, Colin Gordon, this limited edition, innovative tequila is inspired by Don Julio Gonzalez’s creative spirit and passion to take the art of tequila making to new heights.
Tequila Don Julio Reposado, Double Cask is a unique, rich and nuanced expression of classic Reposado matured for 8 months and finished for 2 weeks in casks that previously held Lagavulin Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. You’ll find a hint of signature Lagavulin peatiness amongst the more traditional reposado notes.
