Crafted from high-gloss metallic gold and silver-coated glass, the bottles include vintage-inspired raised lettering. They're finished with an intricate skull design influenced by Mexico's traditional calaca skeletons.
The Cuervo Legacy
Everyone knows Jose Cuervo—it's the world's best-selling tequila—but did you know that the brand is over two centuries old and has always been family owned? Or that they were the world's first tequila producer? It all started back in the mid 18th century when the King of Spain issued Don Jose Antonio de Cuervo a land grant in the Jalisco area of Mexico some fifty-plus years before it became an independent republic. Don Jose's family started a farm where they cultivated and harvested blue agave. By 1795, the Taberna de Cuervo was commercially distilling agave into tequila and an industry was born. In 1880, Cuervo became the first distiller to bottle tequila, at a time when other producers were still using barrels.
Today, that same family tradition is alive and well. All of Jose Cuervo's tequila is still made in the central Mexican town of Tequila in the state of Jalisco, where they operate the oldest active distillery in Latin America. And while they now produce half a dozen varieties of tequila, they still handcraft their spirits using traditional, time-honored methods and recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation. It all seems to be working: the first family of tequila has stayed on top of the game for 220 years and to celebrate, the brand has created two limited-edition bottles of their best selling Especial Gold and Silver tequila. Imbibed with two centuries of tradition and only available for a short time, these artistic bottles are true collector's items. But don't let that stop you from enjoying what's inside.
