Don Julio looked to Portugal for its latest luxury tequila innovation: Don Julio Rosado. The new offering follows in the footsteps of the brand’s most recent colorful offering, the orange wine cask-finished Primavera.
Tequila Don Julio Rosado is a Reposado tequila that’s aged for at least four months in Ruby Port wine casks from the Douro wine region of Portugal. The result is a tequila with a delicate pink hue that delivers notes of creamy strawberry, ripe raspberry, dried plum, roasted caramel, and a touch of rich cocoa, creating a unique and smooth tequila.
On the nose, the tequila offers inviting aromas of red fruits and caramel. The palate finds a unique blend of strawberry, raspberry, and plum notes balanced with flavors of roasted caramel and rich cocoa. The finish is described as “incredibly smooth with a light fruit finish.”
The brand recommends enjoying its Rosado on the rocks or with a splash of sparkling water and lemon garnish.
Don Julio Rosado is priced at $125.99 per 750ml bottle. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
In October, Don Julio launched a second bottling of its Ultima Reserva, a special bottling that celebrates its 80th anniversary. Now the brand is releasing a second bottling of the unique tequila.
