In 1795, the King of Spain granted José Antonio de Cuervo the first concession ever to produce Tequila commercially. This singular event marked the birth of Tequila. Today, Jose Cuervo Especial® Gold is the No. 1 selling Tequila in the world. The Jose Cuervo® recipe and process has been passed down and upheld by a family of entrepreneurs, inventors, and risk-takers. It is 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.
