Jose Cuervo Tequila | Best Selling Brand

Jose Cuervo Tequila

Jose Cuervo tequila is one of the best selling tequila brands originally established nearly 200 years ago in Mexico. It is known for its long standing reputation, it being one of the first tequilas developed, and for having the affordability and flavor that makes a fine tequila. Interesting enough the English translation of Jose Cuervo is Joe Crow, however more interesting is the way everyone responds to it as it’s name should be- great tequila.

Jose Antonio Cuervo developed his signature spirit when he bargained with the Spanish king and opted for land that was flourishing with the blue agave plant that tequila is made from exclusively. This event happened in 1758 way before tequila became popular and in the time where mezcal wine was more prominent. Tequila then became more sensationalized in 1821 after the war had ceased and Mexico captured it’s independence.
