In 1795, the King of Spain granted José Antonio de Cuervo the first concession ever to produce Tequila commercially. This particular event marked the birth of Tequila. Today, Jose Cuervo Especial Gold is the #1 selling Tequila in the world. The Jose Cuervo recipe and process has been passed down and maintained by a family of entrepreneurs, inventors and risk takers. It’s no wonder why Jose Cuervo is the most awarded family of Tequila in history.
Legend has it that Cuervo Gold was used to make the first ever Margarita. Cuervo Gold is a blend of Reposado and younger Tequilas. The result is a well-balanced, smooth Tequila that makes the perfect Margarita, frozen or on the rocks.
Jose Cuervo Especial Reposado Tequila has a sweet aroma with notes of agave and a hint of oak. It has a beautiful golden color. The taste is fine and sweet with notes of agave, oak and vanilla.

The family-owned business, José Cuervo, was founded in 1795 by José Maria Guadalupe de Cuervo. José Cuervo is the world’s first tequila producer, and for more than 250 years, the company has been producing tequila using the same traditional methods as when it all started. A careful selection of the very best agaves, careful fermentation, distillation and processing have created the world’s finest and best-selling tequila.
The Mexican government has set some standards for what tequila is and how it should be made. These standards are called Normas, and every bottle of real tequila has a so-called NOM No. (Normas Oficiales Mexicanas). José Cuervo has the NOM numbers 1104 and 1122, which indicate which distillery the tequila is made at.
