How this product is made
Agave Harvesting: Mature blue agave plants are harvested by skilled jimadors, who carefully remove the leaves to reveal the heart, or ” piña.” The piñas are then cut and cooked to convert the starches into fermentable sugars.
Extraction and Fermentation: The cooked piñas are crushed to extract their juices, which are then fermented. Yeast is added to the juice to facilitate the fermentation process, converting the sugars into alcohol.
Distillation: The fermented liquid, known as “mosto,” is distilled twice in copper pot stills to produce a high-quality tequila spirit. The second distillation helps refine the spirit and remove impurities.
Aging: Don Julio Reposado is aged for a minimum of two months in oak barrels. This aging process allows the tequila to mellow and acquire flavors and aromas from the wood, resulting in a smoother and more complex taste compared to unaged “Blanco” tequilas.
Bottling: After aging, the Reposado tequila is carefully selected and filtered to remove any sediment or impurities. It is then bottled at its optimal strength for distribution.
Appearance: Don Julio Reposado has a golden amber color, reflecting its time spent in oak barrels.
Nose: The aroma is inviting, with notes of ripe agave, vanilla, caramel, and hints of toasted oak.
Palate: On the palate, the tequila offers a smooth and velvety texture. Flavors of cooked agave, honey, butterscotch, and a touch of spice unfold, creating a well-rounded and harmonious taste experience.
Finish: The finish is warm and lingering, with a pleasant sweetness and a subtle oak influence.
Don Julio Reposado typically has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of around 38% to 40%, which is standard for most tequilas.
