For more than a generation, Don Julio has been the definition of quality Tequila Blanco.
Don Julio Gonzalez started making his own Tequila in 1942 when he was only seventeen years old. Within five years he opened his own distillery, naming it "Primavera" (meaning “Springtime”). He spent the next forty years refining his process and improving the quality of his brands. Seagram came along and invested in 1990s, and Diageo acquired the entire operation in 2014. Today, they make their namesake Don Julio brand of fine Jalisco Tequilas and several other Spirits brands in the Diageo portfolio.
If you point us to a back bar and ask us to whip up a perfect Margarita, you will probably see us reach for two fresh limes, a shaker of ice, one shot of Cointreau, and three shots of Don Julio Blanco Tequila. Don Julio is good Tequila made right and consistent — we’ve never had a bad pour form a bottle of Don Julio. Heck, we’ve never had an average pour either. Every shot of this 100% Weber Blue agave nectar is as good as the last. So, grab a bottle and join us.
The famous action-adventure author Clive Cussler made Don Julio Tequila the favorite drink of his fictional hero Dirk Pitt.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is a textbook of Tequila fragrances, including cilantro and sage, lime zest, a little chili, and a hint of pineapple.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile opens with a light sweetness that blooms to citrus and sea salt with more earthy herbs and some black pepper.
The finish is long for a Blanco with lingering notes of salted sage.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Don Julio Blanco Tequila and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
