A worthy homage to the Mexican land.
“The Duke” was, John Wayne — the rough and tumble actor who has become an icon of Americanism and the rugged cowboy. Duke Spirits is the holding company owned by John Wayne Enterprises, which is the managed by the family’s estate. Famous for making their Duke Bourbon, they’ve recently expanded their range.
Among other things, The Duke loved Mexico and spent a significant amount of time down there. He filmed some of his most famous movies there and immersed himself in the culture — and yes, this included sipping authentic Tequila with his local friends. To honor his connection to the land, a line of premium Tequilas was launched.
Hand-distilled in Los Altos of Jalisco, Duke Grand Cru Extra Añejo Tequila Founder's Reserve is aged and finished for six years in the finest French Oak Wine barrels. That’s just the right amount of time for the wood to impart the delicious flavors of caramel, oak, and vanilla on this lovely agave-forward Spirit. Plus, it’s a bottle with a cause as every Duke Grand Cru Tequila bottle purchased will support the John Wayne Cancer Foundation.
