Don Julio Primavera

The Product Story

Introducing Tequila Don Julio Primavera – A limited Edition. In his true innovative spirit, Don Julio González was a pioneer in creating ultra-premium tequila and believed reposado tequila was tequila at its finest. Embracing the legacy of its founders’ innovative spirit, Tequila Don Julio Primavera features a deliciously smooth expression that takes the brand’s traditional Reposado and finishes it in orange wine casks, which previously held wine infused with macerated orange peels, striking the balance of citrus and honey. This unique reposado tequila is made for moments spent outdoors, in the daytime, with friends.

Featuring a flawless balance of notes including honeyed agave, a hint of spice, and a light, citrus finish, Tequila Don Julia Primavera is best enjoyed on the rocks with an orange wheel or in our signature drink of the summer: The Primavera Sunset. Simply top Tequila Don Julia Primavera with club soda and garnish with a cara cara orange wedge – it’s the perfect cocktail for any outdoor daytime get-together.

Tasting Notes

Komos is a completely unique expression of the very best Tequila can be. Komos is made with a unique five-step process. First, they make great tequila in the namesake town from agave of perfect ripeness from both the highlands and the lowlands for complexity. Then, the tequila is aged in only the finest wine barrels for twelve months. Next, the tequila is refined again removing any impurities. From here, the tequila is rested in the ancient Greek amphorae which makes it even more smooth. Komos is packaged in handmade ceramic bottles recalling Greek ceramic traditions in a modern expression.
