Don Julio 1942 Anejo 750ml
Don Julio was founded in 1942, by Don Julio González-Frausto Estrada, who began distilling tequila at age 17. Don Julio tequilas are handcrafted in the Highlands of Jalisco, where the microclimate and mineral-rich clay soil allow the blue agave plant to flourish.
La Primavera exclusively produces Don Julio. Each bottle is distilled from 100% pure Blue Weber Agave which are harvested after 7-10 years by expert Jimadors. As highly respected craftsmen they handpick and then uniformly handcut the agave pencas (leaves) from the piña to increase the quality of juice.
Then the piñas are slowly steam-cooked in traditional masonry ovens for three days to release the sweet agave juice. It takes 8 pounds of blue agave to produce one bottle of tequila. This iconic Don Julio 1942 Tequila is made in small batches and matured for at least two and a half years, Don Julio 1942 Tequila is handcrafted in honor of the year that Don Julio González began his tequila-making journey.
