The oldest distillery in Latin America to still remain active, La Rojeña, was founded in 1812. It is here that Jose Cuervo tequilas are produced. José Antonio de Cuervo y Valdés began to plant agave on his land in Jalisco in 1758, with permission from King Ferdinand VI, for the purpose of tequila production. The company has been in the hands of the family since creation, today it finds itself in the hands of the tenth generation of the Cuervo family.
Jose Cuervo is the owner of the largest amount of agave in the world. After slowly growing and maturing over seven years, the Jimadors, which is the special term for those who take care of agave, harvest and prune the plants so that their cores can be processed to make tequila. The juice extracted from the agave is fermented, distilled, condensed, and rectified. This young, white tequila is then put into oak barrels for up to six months to rest and acquire characteristics from the wood. The bottled product is Jose Cuervo Especial Reposado .
A young, golden, aged tequila, Jose Cuervo Especial Reposado is the perfect tequila for margaritas or other mixed drinks that require the tequila to play the protagonist. It is also perfect for enjoying on its own. If you would like to enjoy your tequila with food, try this excellent tequila with tropical fruit, seafood, or Mexican food.
