Don Julio, a brand of Diageo North America, introduced Tequila Don Julio Alma Miel, a new permanent addition to its portfolio offerings.
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 that holds sweet notes of agave honey, spiced orchard fruit, creamy caramel and rich roasted agave, the company says.
“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," said Christina Choi, senior vice president of tequila at Diageo North America, in a statement. “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."
Packaged in a sleek 750-ml bottle, Tequila Don Julio Alma Miel is on shelves in select markets for a suggested retail price of $99.99, and will be available nationwide in the coming months wherever spirits-based beverages are sold, the company says.
