A deliciously fresh and luxury Tequila bursting with citrus flavours. Made by the much-awarded Don Julio, this Tequila is made using the finest agave plants from Los Alton de Jalisco, masterfully crafted at La Primavera distillery (founded in 1942) and bottled immediately after distillation to maintain as much of the fresh agave flavour as possible. It’s incredibly smooth with crisp agave notes and a long finish with a touch of black pepper. A great Tequila for sharing, neat on the rocks or in cocktails.

Here’s our tequila picks that might not be on deal, but are very much worth seeking out for their unique qualities.
Casamigos was the brainchild of longtime friends Hollywood A-lister George Clooney, Rande Gerber (husband of Cindy Crawford) and Mike Meldman and their shared love of tequila. Initially created as a ‘house tequila’ for the three friends – its name translates to ‘house of friends’ – the small batch production soon became available internationally and launched in the UK in 2015. The reposado is 100% blue agave from the highlands of Jalisco, aged for seven months in American oak and has a soft and smooth taste with hints of caramel, vanilla and cocoa.
