Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Extra Anejo Tequila
2019 Edition Jorge Pardo
The thin lines that cover the surface of this 2019
edition wooden box, are designed by the artist Jorge Pardo, who has created a
series of drawings depicting jimadores skillfully working the fields of western
Mexico with the coa and barreton. The designs, produced digitally from
real photographs, are composed of dense superimposed stripes that make the
whole difficult to take in at a glance. This method of visual composition
not only blurs the bodies of the jimadores themselves, but also creates an
illusion of movement that lends the piece a charged energy. This theme
and approach hearkens back to the great traditions of Mexican avant-garde
painters of the first half of the 20th century who often depicted subjects of
rural development and revolution.
Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Extra Anejo Tequila -
100% Anejo. 100% Blue Agave.
Aged in oak barrels for an average of 3 years. Final
blend includes Tequila from reserves aged over 30 years. Reserva de la Familia
Extra Añejo is the award-winning pinnacle of the Jose Cuervo family of
tequilas. The finest 10-12 year-old agaves are hand-selected, and only the most
flavorful inner portion of the agave’s heart is used to make this 100% Blue
Agave Extra Añejo Tequila. Vibrant, with a full, mellow flavor, combines
floral, agave, vanilla and Cognac-like flavors.
Reserva de la Familia is the Cuervo family's finest
Tequila. In fact, for over 10 generations it was a family secret only shared
with the closest of friends. In 1995, to celebrate their 200-year anniversary as
the world's leading producer of Tequila, the Cuervo family decided to share
this blend of its special Tequila reserves with people who truly savor an
exceptional taste sensation.
Reserva de la Familia is often served in a snifter, where
its complex flavors and aromas can be fully appreciated. Produced in limited
quantities with a distinct personality that varies from year to year, Reserva
de la Familia has been recognized with several prestigious awards in Mexico,
the United States and Europe.
Each bottle is handmade, numbered, dated and sealed in
wax, and every year the Cuervo family commissions a different Mexican artist to
design the new collectible box for Reserva de la Familia.
