This Special Release Is A True Testament To The Legacy Of Don Julio González

Savour the history.


Don Julio González – a name that resonates with tequila enthusiasts worldwide. He wasn’t just the founder of a renowned tequila distillery; he was the game-changer who transformed the tequila industry. Opting for quality over quantity,  González planted agave plants with ample space to flourish and let them reach full maturity before harvest – a practice now embraced across the industry.


Now, as the brand marks its 80th anniversary, Tequila Don Julio pays homage to its founder with the ultimate tribute: Tequila Don Julio Ultima Reserva. Made for collectors, and crafted from the last agave harvest planted by Don Julio and his family in 2006, this tequila luxuriates for three years in bourbon-seasoned oak barrels, then in Madeira wine-seasoned casks, resulting in an unparalleled depth of flavour. A sip reveals hints of apricot and orange, culminating in a smooth, honeyed agave finish that lingers on the palate.

The taste of success

Even a decade after his passing, González’s influence permeates every bottle. Whether it’s the more approachable Reposado Tequila (more on this below) or this most lavish blend, sipping on Don Julio is like savouring history – the earthy soils where González toiled as a ten-year-old, the sweet, smoky essence from the first batch of toasted pina at his Primavera distillery, and the oak-infused richness from the barrels he loaded onto his horse to sell tequila in nearby towns.


A genuine collector’s gem, Don Julio Ultima Reserva Extra Añejo Tequila is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks to fully grasp its complexity. With limited availability, it promises a drinking experience that’s not just unique but also unforgettable – a true testament to the legacy of Don Julio González, and the perfect addition to any top shelf.


For those looking for a mid-week reach-for, Mexico’s highest selling super premium Tequila is the perfect go-to.
