When you have passion, you have everything.
Don Julio Gonzalez
The life of Don Julio González was defined, above all else, by passion. It was this passion that inspired his creation of the world's first luxury tequila. From a young age, Don Julio González saw a unique opportunity in the production of tequila. With nothing but his own passion for the endeavor, he went to a powerful local businessman and requested a loan to pursue his vision. Seeing exceptional drive and confidence in the young man, the businessman granted him a loan to found his first distillery.
The process of creating Tequila Don Julio is as unique as the tequila itself. From the cultivation of the agave plant to the American white-oak barrels it is aged in, making Tequila Don Julio is a process that requires the skilled and practiced hands of people trained in the art and craft of tequila. Each bottle of Tequila Don Julio is made from the same handpicked, 100% pure, blue Weber agave plants from the highlands of Jalisco?one of the country's most fertile agave-growing regions. It is here where each agave plant is allowed to grow seven to ten years before it is harvested, resulting in the mellow, fully developed agave flavor Tequila Don Julio is known for. It is this attention to quality, craftsmanship and tradition that sets Tequila Don Julio apart from other tequilas and makes it the world's finest luxury tequila.
Blanco: is the base from which all of our other variants are derived. Commonly referred to as "silver" tequila, its crisp agave flavor and hints of citrus make it an essential component to a variety of innovative drinks including margaritas.
Reposado: Barrel aged for eight months in American white-oak barrels, Tequila Don Julio Reposado is golden amber in color, and offers a rich, smooth finish?the very essence of the perfect barrel-aged tequila.
Añejo: Barrel aged in smaller batches for eighteen months in American white-oak barrels, Tequila Don Julio Añejo is a testament to the craft of making a superior tasting, aged tequila. Rich, distinctive and wonderfully complex, its flavor strikes the perfect balance between agave, wood and hints of vanilla.
