A tequila with mass appeal. A high class reposado for aficionados and an uncomplicated treat for newcomers. A mellow flavour, a silky texture, a gentle burn and a head turner of a bottle. What’s not to like?

What makes the Don Julio Reposado special?

The eight months this sits in American white oak barrels previously used for bourbon whiskey casks is at the upper range of waiting for a reposado. The extra time smooths off the edges to create a pale amber liquid that melts in the mouth. There is no peppery aftertaste, just an elegant, refined tequila. The fact this is Don Julio, the oldest makers of premium tequila, also means you can be assured of quality.

Don Julio Reposado tasting notes


A distinct smell of roasted agave, with hints of honey, vanilla and light oak


A twin burst of roasted agave and sweetness. The sweetness one might liken to vanilla, caramel, honey or stewed apple. This is followed by some spicy light pepper notes with some light oak. In the mouth the texture is silky


A long, pleasing finish with a slight heat and lingering agave on the tongue that melts dreamily away.

Don Julio Reposado Appearance

If looks are important to your drinks shelf, then this is a must have. Other bottles may tower above it, but few if any will be as wide. Like all Don Julio tequila it comes with a pretty head; a large polished wood top housing the cork inside. The dark brown glass is nod to the oak barrels the drink was aged in - the tequila itself is a light gold colour.

Where does Don Julio Reposado come from?

It starts life as a pampered blue agave plan in in highlands above the town of Atotonilco, in Jalisco state. The extremes of weather there bring brings out the best in the plants. To avoid the heat, the jimadors (harvesters) venture out as early as possible to cut the pinas from the plants. It is then fermented in the famous La Primavera distillery and aged in American bourbon casks made of white oak.

Don Julio – The producer of Don Julio Reposado

Julio González-Frausto had a hunch that blue agave grown in the highlands would taste better than the agave from the plains. Until then, way back in the 1940s, tequila had not been thought of as high-end drink. Fortunately, Julio’s hunch was right, and a legend was born.

How to enjoy Don Julio Reposado

Recommended with Tacos. Serve with chargrilled vegetables, guacamole and meat or seafood of your choice – both prawns or pork are a favoured match.

This is Mexico’s version of the Bloody Mary – Sangrita literally translates as ‘a little blood’. It is a savoury drink with bite that is served as a separate spicy drink, alongside a glass of neat Don Julio Reposado served. To do the Sangrita justice, ensure all ingredients are fresh. Add all the ingredients to a jug and stir to ensure the salt has dissolved. Then store for 15-30 minutes in a fridge. Take out remove and discard the jalapeno. Then serve side by side with the Don Julio – take sips from each in turn.
