The latest release from Don Julio is their Ultima Reserva extra añejo tequila.
The brand began when Don Julio González began making tequila in 1942. In celebration of the brand’s upcoming 80th anniversary in 2022, Don Julio has announced Ultima Reserva.
As a tribute to Don Julio González, this final agave harvest was set aside for this special distillation. Only 4,000 cases of Tequila Don Julio Ultima Reserva will release this year. Limited quantities of the tequila will continue rolling out each year until it reaches the end of this final agave harvest.
Adorning the bottle are piña-inspired designs, from the etched cap to the faceted base.
The result is a tequila with a nose of toasted oak and caramel, the company reports, followed by hints of apricot and orange, and a finish with honeyed agave.
Available in extremely limited quantities, Tequila Don Julio Ultima Reserva has a suggested retail price of $399 per 750-ml. bottle.
