Don Julio 1942 Anejo Tequila
Don Julio 1942, an exquisite Tequila Añejo created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the opening of Don Julio's first distillery.
In 1942, Don Julio Gonzalez founded his distillery, La Primavera, under the brilliant sunshine of Los Altos de Jalisco. From the cultivation of the Agave to the bottling of the final product, he refined an intricate process that produces one of Mexico's most exquisite Tequilas.
The process begins by hand selecting Agave plants that take seven to ten years to mature. The Agave is then slowly roasted for 70 hours in traditional masonry ovens and double distilled in a special alambique. This limited edition Tequila is crafted from the finest Agave and aged until it reaches the most extraordinary levels of flavor and character.
Rested in oak barrels for over 2 years. Pure golden color, full nose of vanilla, apple and oak. Silky profile with a sweet vanilla finish.
