In 2006, Don Julio, with his family, planted their final agave field. In honor of his devotion and craftsmanship, this agave harvest was carefully distilled, barreled, and set aside for a special use. To preserve this tequila and the exquisite agave piñas behind it, we have implemented a Solera aging system. The Solera aging method combines and matures tequilas of different characteristics finished in unique casks, allowing Don Julio’s final agave harvest to remain at the heart of this rare Extra Añejo Tequila.
Ultima Reserva has been rested in oak, previously used to age bourbon, and finished in Madeira wine-seasoned casks. This exceptional tequila begins with a nose of toasted oak and caramel, follows with hints of apricot and orange and finishes with deliciously smooth honeyed agave. Don Julio’s Ultima Reserva is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks – perfect for those special moments you want to savor and celebrate with those closest to you.
