Don Julio González-Frausto Estrada’s tequila-making adventure began in 1942 at the age of 17 in the Jalisco Highlands of Mexico, where he built and opened La Primavera distillery. From the beginning, Don Julio’s passion was reinforced by a strong work ethic, a bold spirit of innovation, and absolute dedication to craftsmanship.
A true pioneer in tequila making from ﬁeld to bottle, for a good forty years, Don Julio meticulously dissected every detail of the process and either innovated or improved in his goal to make the very best tequila. Each small, but signiﬁcant innovation and every detail of Don Julio’s dedication to his craft can still be tasted in every sip of Tequila Don Julio today.
