Don Julio Reposado Buchanan Double Cask Tequila
Tequila Don Julio announces the release of Tequila Don Julio Reposado, Double Cask, a limited-edition Reposado tequila finished in casks used in the making of Buchanan’s Blended Scotch Whisky. Inspired by Don Julio González’s innovative spirit and passion to take the art of tequila making to new heights, current Master Distiller Enrique de Colsa is continuing the legacy by producing a truly unique tequila. The latest variant to the portfolio is a rich and nuanced expression of Tequila Don Julio’s traditional Reposado with hints of whisky on the finish.
Since Don Julio González revolutionized the tequila industry in 1942 when he began producing the spirit, the brand has always sought to deliver innovative offerings that are also representative of the quality that Tequila Don Julio has been known for. Master Distiller Enrique de Colsa, spent nearly three years perfecting this innovation, constantly experimenting with the vast cask options available within the Diageo portfolio. He landed on casks used in the making of Buchanan’s Blended Scotch Whisky since it provided a wonderfully complex, new flavor offering that still allows the notes of Tequila Don Julio’s signature Reposado to shine through.
Master Distiller Enrique de Colsa commented, “I spent three years experimenting with various cask options to perfect the flavor of this variant and I’m proud to introduce it to the U.S. I found that finishing the tequila for one month in casks used in the making of Buchanan’s Blended Scotch Whisky allowed me to create a tequila that perfectly balances the core flavor of Tequila Don Julio as well as the signature flavor of Buchanan’s Blended Scotch Whisky. It’s an incredibly unique flavor profile that is excellent enjoyed responsibly neat or on the rocks.”
