Tequila Don Julio Introduces Rare Ultima Reserva Expression
Tequila Don Julio has announced the introduction of Tequila Don Julio Ultima Reserva, a special 36-month aged luxury Extra-Añejo that preserves Don Julio González’s ultimate legacy – the final agave harvest planted by González and his family in 2006.
As a tribute to Don Julio González’s devotion and craftsmanship, this final agave harvest was set aside for this special distillation. Highly limited quantities of this luxuriously rare liquid will continue to be released each year until it reaches the end of this final agave harvest.
“When Don Julio González first embarked on his tequila-making journey, he crafted a special private reserve that was meant to be shared with his close family and friends,” said Christina Choi, Senior Vice President of Tequila, Diageo North America.
“We are proud to carry on his legacy with the release of Tequila Don Julio Ultima Reserva, an offering that honors 80 years of devotion with a liquid meant to be enjoyed exactly as Don Julio intended – celebrating with those closest to you.”
Tequila Don Julio Ultima Reserva is rested in oak barrels previously used to age bourbon and finished in seasoned Madeira wine casks in the Solera method.
The result is an exceptional spirit beautifully golden in color that begins with a nose of toasted oak and caramel, follows with hints of apricot and orange, and finishes with deliciously smooth honeyed agave that is best enjoyed neat.
Available in extremely limited quantities, the first batch of Tequila Don Julio Ultima Reserva will be available in select markets while supplies last, with a suggested retail price of $399 USD and each year’s released batch specially labeled.
