Jose Cuervo is releasing a limited edition 250 Aniversario Tequila, costing $2,250, this fall. On November 2, 1758 King Carlos of Spain granted Don Jose Antonio de Cuervo the first plot of land on which to cultivate agave and the limited edition 250 Aniversario Tequila commemorates the historic birth of tequila production and the beginning what has become of 10 generations of Cuervo family tradition. The company planted blue agave on the same land granted in 1758 and used these estate-grown plants exclusively in the production of Jose Cuervo 250 Aniversario.
Jose Cuervo 250 Aniversario is a 100% blue agave Extra Añejo Tequila blended from the most select tequilas in the family’s reserve and is aged in a unique double-cask method. The best of these Extra Añejos, aged in toasted new American Oak barrels for a minimum of three years, were selected by the master distiller and blended together to achieve a superior tequila. The distinctive blend was then finished for 10 months in Sherry casks originating from Spain. The decanter was inspired by the original glass bottle first used by Jose Cuervo to ship Tequila to towns throughout Mexico. Each comes packaged in elegant oak gift box and will have its sequential number etched into the glass, certifying the product’s rarity and authenticity.
