Tequila of the Month, April 2012

Tequila of the Month April 2012, Jose Cuervo Reserva De La Familia Extra Anejo
Rated: 93 Points

It’s with great pleasure that we’ve awarded April 2012 “Tequila of the Month” to Jose Cuervo Reserva De La Familia Extra Anejo Tequila.

About Jose Cuervo, Reserva De La Familia Extra Anejo Tequila:
In 1795, King Carlos IV of Spain granted Jose Maria Guadalupe Cuervo y Montano the first license to produce mezcal wine in the Tequila region. The history of the Cuervo family has always been linked to the development of the Tequila region and to the growing appreciation of the unique spirit throughout the world. From the beginning, they have selected only the finest blue agaves from their fields. In antique ovens of stone and clay the agave is baked, the sugars are extracted and then double distilled.
In celebration of their long tradition that spans more than 200 years, the family selects only the best of its tequilas aging them in a private cellar, in new American and French oak barrels recently charred to ensure its rich, mellow flavor and golden color. Thus they achieve what their close friends call: The Family Reserve.
