To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Don Julio Tequila, they have produced this fantastic Añejo tequila. Their finest agave plants are hand selected for distillation. This tequila is then aged for 18 months in American White Oak barrels, and then filtered to a pure silver colour. The result is an Añejo Tequila with the smoothness of a blanco.
An intriguing finished Tequila created by master distiller Teresa Lara. Distilled from the finest blue agave, the Tequila is first rested in medium-char American oak casks for 11 months, before a finishing period of 22 months in cask which formerly held vintage Port. This accentuates the complexity and creates agve-rich notes.
A European release of the increasingly legendary Don Julio 1942 tequila, named for the eponymous Don who passed away in 2012. A rich, old and chocolatey tequila with the trademark pepper notes backed up by loads of fruit. Impressive.

A legendary special edition tequila bottled for the Millennium from the very oldest and greatest of Cuervo's vast stocks. With a depth of flavour, softness and complexity that is quite astounding for a tequila, this is a true connoisseur's treat.

Piedra was Patron's first ever extra añejo Tequila initially released for travel retail in 2013. Produced from 100% Blue Weber agave, grown in the Jalisco highlands, which is crushed in the traditional Tahona process. Aged for three years in a combination of new American and French oak, this is an exceptional example of aged Tequila.
The daddy of the Don Julio family - this is Real as in Madrid. Not as lively as the Don Julio 1942, but with an extra layer of super-smooth texture. Stunning vanilla, toasty oak spices and peppery agave character. I make no apologies for saying that this is the 'Real' deal.
