Lavish Extra Añejo Tequila finished in Madeira.

Don Julio Gonzalez was a pioneer in creating ultra-premium Tequila. He started his distilling tale in 1942 when he was only seventeen years old, and within five years, he opened his distillery. He named it ‘Primavera,’ which means ‘Springtime.’ He then spent the next 40 years perfecting his process and boosting the quality of his brands. Seagram came along as an investor in the Nineties, and Diageo acquired the entire operation in 2014. Today, they make the Don Julio brand of fine Jalisco Tequilas and several other Spirits brands in the Diageo portfolio.

Don Julio Ultima Reserva Extra Añejo Solero Aged Tequila honors Don Julio and his devotion by immortalizing the final agave he planted. It was produced using the Solera method before spending 36 months in ex-Bourbon oak barrels and got a lovely finish in Madeira seasoned casks. That makes this Tequila one of those Spirits you only use on special occasions. You’ll be wooed by alluring notes of apricot, toasted oak, and caramel. You’ll want to enjoy this one neat.

Tequila is like Champagne or Cognac. It has a Denomination of Origin, meaning it can only be produced in the Jalisco State, Mexico.
Tequila goes bad with time! Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidation and evaporation diminish the quality of the Tequila and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
Tequila is made from one type of agave, Blue agave. Each of these plants takes at least 6 years, more likely a year or two longer to mature.
Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.

Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.
There are over 136 species of Agave. For Tequila to be officially called “Tequila,” it must be comprised of at least 51% of the Blue Weber Agave species.
The strongest Tequila available for sale clocks in at 75% ABV (150 proof). This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but drinking huge amounts of this spirit is likely te-quil-a.
