For more than two centuries, Jose Cuervo has followed rigorous production standards to produce Reserva De La Familia. Only 18,000 bottles of the 100 percent blue agave anejo tequila are produced each year and a member of the Cuervo family personally samples each barrel to ensure its high quality.
The meticulous care used to create this ultra-premium tequila is also extended to its packaging. Each bottle is carefully assembled by hand, numbered, dated and then placed in a handcrafted wooden box designed by a local artist. Luis Zarate was chosen to create the packaging artwork for the 2002 edition, entitled "Tinta, Savia and Espinas," which translates to "Ink, Sap and Thorns," three icons that symbolize tequila and the agave plant.
Aged in American charred oak barrels, Reserva De la Familia has a full, mellow taste that combines floral, agave, vanilla, nut and flavors.
