The second segment(Technical details that are mostly available on a google search)

Founded by Don Julio Gonzalez, La Primavera Distillery was built in 1947. It was in 1987 that the tequila was branded as Don Julio. It has quite the history and a legacy of a man who had a passion for producing quality tequila. Its website has all the details about it! The passion shows when you sip one :-) Also, the bottle is shorter and unique. The reason is that it could be kept on the table and still allow people to see each other, compared to taller traditional tequila bottles.
The product label says it is aged for 8 months in American White Oak Barrels. This is where the magical flavor comes from.
