Don Julio Blanco Tequila
About Don Julio Blanco Tequila
From a classic story to a worldwide classic, Don Julio has grown over the past 80 years from humble roots to one of the world's most popular tequila brands.
Don Julio Gonzalez-Frausto Estrada founded what we know today as Don Julio in 1942. After learning tequila making from his uncle, Jose, Don Julio began selling only to family and friends from a small distillery in Jalisco. Today, Don Julio (NOM 1449) is produced alongside Casamigos in Atotonilco El Alto, Jalisco at one of the most sophisticated distilleries in the world. Atotonilco El Alto is a small town of 50,000 people located in the Jaliscan highlands. More importantly, it is also the birthplace of the brand's founder almost 100 years ago.
