Tequila Don Julio 70 Añejo Claro is a truly unique product that redefines the Añejo tequila category by embodying the rich, complex flavor of a traditional 100% Agave Añejo in a liquid that is filtered to become a clear spirit. This extraordinary tequila represents another evolution in the tequila category and marks the world’s first clear Añejo, pioneered by Tequila Don Julio.
The luxury tequila of choice in Mexico, Tequila Don Julio uses only the highest-caliber, fully matured and ripened blue agave hand-selected from the rich, clay soils of the Los Altos region in Jalisco.
Tequila Don Julio 70 originated from Master Distiller Enrique de Colsa’s special reserve and is being launched in honor of the 70th anniversary of the year Don Julio González began perfecting the art of tequila making. To create this unique masterpiece tequila, Tequila Don Julio hand selects the finest blue agave plants at the peak of their maturity. The agave is then hand harvested and twice distilled at La Primavera, the distillery founded by Don Julio González. Tequila Don Julio 70 is aged to perfection in reclaimed American white oak barrels for 18 months, then carefully filtered for extra smoothness and its unique clarity.
