NEW YORK, NY, January 18, 2024 – Continuing Don Julio González’s legacy of living Por Amor to uphold an unparalleled devotion tocraft and product, Tequila Don Julio introduces Tequila Don Julio Alma Miel, an exceptional liquid inspired by the agave honey that comes from the heart of the 100% Blue Weber Agave. This unique blend of Blanco tequila distilled with oven-roasted agave honey and Añejo tequila that has been aged for at least 14 months and finished in Crémant du Limoux wine casks from the Limoux region of France, results in a lusciously smooth liquid with honeyed aromas that brings out the heart and soul of each moment.
“Our love for the craft is what keeps Tequila Don Julio at the forefront of luxury tequila and a force when it comes to sharing some of the most exceptional expressions with the world,” says Christina Choi, Senior Vice President of Tequila at Diageo North America. “With the launch of Tequila Don Julio Alma Miel, we hope to inspire tequila lovers who are exploring new innovations as we pay tribute to the spirit of Mexico through the agave plant.”
Tequila Don Julio Alma Miel holds a rich flavor profile resulting from the addition of oven-roasted agave honey during the distillation of the Blanco tequila. This enhances the sensorial profile of the liquid increasing the roasted agave notes that have always been a signature part of Tequila Don Julio’s portfolio of luxury offerings. Once blended with Añejo tequila that has been aged for at least 14 months and finished in Crémant du Limoux wine casks from the Limoux region of France, the combination creates a liquid that holds sweet notes of agave honey, spiced orchard fruit, creamy caramel, and rich roasted agave. Beautifully packaged in a sleek, tall bottle inspired by the colors of the Blue Weber Agave, Tequila Don Julio Alma Miel is best enjoyed on the rocks garnished with an orange rind or neat.
To help bring to life the soul at the core of the product, Mexican singer-songwriter, Christian Nodal joins the brand in celebrating the launch of Tequila Don Julio Alma Miel through the lens of Modern Mexico. The contemporary artist has revolutionized regional Mexican music with his ‘Mariacheño’ sound that blends traditional Mexican Mariachi and Norteño genres, bringing the new age of Mexican music to a global stage. Nodal shares how he lives Por Amor in the brand’s new creative film launching in early February and will help curate a national dinner series that blends Tequila Don Julio Alma Miel with a fusion of Mexican rhythms and sounds, and delicious food that will tantalize the taste buds, to create sensorial and meaningful experiences through Tequila Don Julio’s new award-winning visual world Por Amor.
