You can now personalise your Don Julio 1942 Tequilla Bottle
For the first time ever, Don Julio 1942, the world’s first luxury tequila, is offering the chance to personalise its distinctive bottle. Shoppers can now add their unique touch with an engraved name or message to create the perfect keep-sake gift.
The iconic Don Julio 1942 is a small batch of ultra-premium Añejo tequila aged for a minimum of 2.5 years. Impress your Valentine with its original aroma with a sweet taste of warm oak and hints of caramel and vanilla which can be enjoyed neat or in luxury cocktails.

Shake, shake, shake until bitingly cold. Then fill the tumbler with fresh ice and strain the drink over the top. Squeeze a wedge of lime into the glass, and toss it in too. Stir and drink.

Fill a tall glass with ice. Add 60ml white tequila, 60ml pink grapefruit juice, 30 ml lime juice, 10 ml sugar syrup and a pinch of salt. Stir and top up with soda water or fizzy grapefruit drink. Lounge and sip whilst dreaming of Tulum…
