It’s a Cuervo fact!

Jose Cuervo is a brand of tequila that was founded in 1795 by Don Jose Antonio de Cuervo.

Real tequila is made from a plant called Blue Agave and only alcoholic beverages made with Blue Agave or Agave Azul grown in the states of Jalisco, Michoacan, Nayarit, Guanajuato and Tamaulipas can be labeled tequila.

All Cuervo Tequila is made in central mexico. Specifically, the central Mexican town of Tequila in the state of Jalisco.

 “Reposado” means “rested.” Tequila must be “rested” in wood barrels for a minimum of two months. This process mellows and refines the tequila, producing a combination of superb smoothness and great taste.

 “Añejo” means “aged”. In tequila terms, “añejo” is the designation for tequila that has been aged in oak barrels for at least one year.
