Don Julio 1942 is made using mature, handpicked blue agave

In 1942, seventeen-year-old Julio González Estrada started making tequila and founded his distillery, La Primavera (The Springtime), in Jalisco. 

Originally released in celebration of the 60th anniversary of Don Julio Tequila, this meticulously crafted small-batch añejo is produced according to the same principles that started the teen's venture down the road to success. Made using mature, handpicked blue agave that is slow-roasted for 70 hours in traditional brick ovens and aged for a minimum of two-and-a-half years in American white oak barrels, this elegant tequila is a great product for añejo rookies. Besides pleasing aromas of caramel and toffee, it offers a rich palate of flavors most people enjoy — maple, vanilla, molasses, brown sugar — while still retaining the expression of agave. We raise a glass in memory of Don Julio González Estrada, who died in 2012, but whose tequila legacy lives on.
