Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia
The world’s first extra-añejo tequila.
It is hand-selected from the Cuervo family’s private collection. Each bottle is made using only blue agave harvested at its peak maturity after eight years of growing in the field, and aged in French and American oak barrels for a minimum of three years. Reserva de la Familia® is best served in a snifter, allowing for full appreciation of its flavours, aroma, and velvety finish.
The first Tequila made under the Jose Cuervo brand ran from the still on the family farm in 1795, after the founder’s son, also Jose Cuervo was formally granted permission to commercially distil tequila by King Carlos IV of Spain.
The skills, secrets and experience of the Cuervo founders was passed down through generations of family members, as the family business continued to thrive. In 1880, Jose Cuervo was the first brand of tequila to commercially sell Tequila in bottles, where all other producers were still selling in barrels.
Today, the business remains family owned. Many generations after Jose Cuervo first founded the brand, the production of fine quality world-renowned Tequilas continues in the traditions and values upon which it was founded in 1795.
