STORY: We believe that Don Julio’s pioneering work in the craft of tequila has much in common with our work in the craft of chocolate. We selected our Rain Harvest 2015 - Light (73%) to mature in one of our Don Julio casks.
PAIRING RECOMMENDATIONS: The first and most obvious choice is añejo tequila in general, and Don Julio in particular. Whiskies across the board also pair very well, particularly American whiskies like Bourbon and rye, as well as Scotch and Irish. In the realm of cheese, look toward mild Alpine cheeses (eg. Comté, Gruyère and Beaufort), soft and semi-hard sheep milk cheese, as well as gouda and brie.
