Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver tequila review

José Antonio de Cuervo y Valdés was granted a plot of land by King Ferdinand VI to plant agave in 1758, but wasn’t granted a permit to produce tequila commercially until 1795.

The firm didn’t start bottling tequila until nearly a century later in 1880, and up until that point, producers were shipping by the barrel. Jose Cuervo enjoyed success in the 19th century, but demand rocketed in the 20th century thanks to prohibition in America, when it was smuggled over the border. Today, Jose Cuervo is a huge operation and the company is working to make production more sustainable – it recently launched biodegradable agave straws, for example.

What does Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver tequila taste like?

Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver is processed before bottling to conserve flavour at freezing temperatures. So, the bottle can be kept in the freezer, making it ideal for spontaneous margaritas. The nose offers hints of aloe vera alongside a strong agave character – indeed, agave dominates the palate, along with punches of green pepper and lime. It’s well-balanced, offering a neutrality that makes it a go-to for cocktail makers.

Try Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver in a Cuervo salty perro cocktail. Mix two measures of Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver with 100ml grapefruit juice and a dash of Angostura bitters in a tall glass rimmed with salt, then top up with tonic water.

Jose Cuervo

Tequila brand based in Mexico

For the song, see José Cuervo (song).

Jose Cuervo is the best-selling brand of tequila,[1] selling a fifth of the tequila consumed worldwide.[2]

As of 2012, Jose Cuervo sells 3.5 million cases of tequila in the US annually, accounting for a third of the US tequila market.[2] Jose Cuervo is family-owned and is run today by the Beckmann family of Mexico, descendants of Don José Antonio de Cuervo. Juan-Domingo Beckmann is the sixth-generation leader of the company.[3] In July 2013 Proximo Spirits took over US distribution of Jose Cuervo from Diageo, following Diageo's failed attempt to buy the company.[2]

History[edit]

Early history[edit]

In 1758, Don José Antonio de Cuervo was issued a land grant by King Ferdinand VI of Spain in the town of Tequila, Jalisco. Here his family founded the Taberna de Cuervo, the farm where they would cultivate and harvest the flowering blue agave plant, a water-retaining plant found in central Mexico that is distilled to create tequila.[3][4][5] The first Vino Mezcal de Tequila de Jose Cuervo was made in 1795,[6] after Don José Antonio de Cuervo's son José María Guadalupe de Cuervo was granted a permit from King Carlos IV of Spain to produce tequila commercially, following a time of prohibition under King Carlos III. This was the birth of the tequila industry.[7]

By 1880, the Cuervo family had begun individually bottling tequila for commercial distribution.[8] Cuervo was the first distiller to bottle tequila, at a time when other distillers were still using barrels.[9] Tequila was known as "mezcal de tequila" until 1893, when tequila makers and the Mexican government dropped "mezcal" from the name.[7] Cuervo's first bottled tequila was sold in 1906.[9]

Upon the death of Don Jesús, his wife, Ana González Rubio, inherited La Rojeña and in 1900 married José Cuervo Labastida, head of La Constancia. From then on, the brand became Jose Cuervo Tequila. After Ana Gonzélez Rubio's death in 1934, the estate was left to her niece Guadalupe Gallardo, who died in 1966 and left the estate to her sister, Virginia Gallardo. One of her sons, Juan Beckmann Gallardo, would manage the business. Part of Cuervo was owned by Distribuidora Bega, and, starting in 1979, the other part was owned by Grupo Cuervo, made up of Beckmann, his son Juan Beckmann Vidal, José Luis Campos, and Heublein Inc.[10]

Recent history[edit]

Along with Sauza, Cuervo began to dominate the tequila industry in the 1940s.[10] Tequila first made significant inroads into the United States during the Prohibition era, when it was smuggled from Mexico into southwestern US states. Tequila made further advances in the US during World War II, when many US distilleries switched to war-related production and there were restrictions on European imports. Then, in the 1980s, more American tourists visited Mexico, discovering tequila.[4] According to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, the US demand for tequila has risen over the years, with 12 million cases shipped to the US in 2012, a 54% increase as compared to a decade earlier. The fastest-growing segment has been super-premium blue agave spirits.[11]

In 1989, the Beckmann family sold 45% of Jose Cuervo to International Distillers and Vintners (IDV), a division of Grand Metropolitan PLC.[12] In 1997, Grand Metropolitan merged with Guinness plc to become Diageo which would be Jose Cuervo's main distributor outside of Mexico until 2013.[2][10][13] Starting in 2011, Diageo, the world's largest liquor maker, was in talks to acquire Jose Cuervo from the Beckmann family[6] for in excess of $3 billion.[1][14] After it was unable to acquire the brand, Diageo announced in December 2012 that it would end the US distribution deal.[15] In a deal first announced in March 2013, Proximo Spirits, a company owned by the Beckmann family, took over Jose Cuervo's distribution beginning in July 2013.[2]

La Rojeña distillery[edit]

Background[edit]

Jose Cuervo is produced at the La Rojeña distillery in the state of Jalisco in Mexico. The distillery was officially founded in 1812. It is the oldest active distillery in Latin America.[5][16] After Ana González Rubio married José Cuervo Labastida in 1900, he renamed the distillery La Rojeña, and was the first to call the tequila produced there Jose Cuervo.[9][10] After the death of Don Vincente, Jesús Flores (owner of the distillery now known as La Constancia) took over management of La Rojeña. He was the first to package the tequila into damajuanas (rope-encased jugs), where previously they had been stored only in wooden barrels.[7] The damajuanas were later replaced with individual bottles, making it easier to transport the tequila across the border to America. The company shipped its first export of three bottles across the border in 1873.[5]

In order for a spirit to be called tequila, it must come from the blue agave plant, a species found only in Jalisco and four nearby regions in central Mexico.[8][12] All Jose Cuervo tequila continues to be made in the town of Tequila in the state of Jalisco in Mexico.[1][6]

Distillation process[edit]

The blue agave plant has spiked leaves and a round, fleshy core (the piña). The leaves are chopped off and the core is cooked and crushed to create juice, which is fermented and distilled to make tequila. The resulting unaged, clear tequila is then diluted with water to bring the alcohol content down to around 40%.[17] Pure tequila is distilled 100% from the sap of the blue agave plant, while mixto tequilas only need to be at least 51% blue agave in order to legally be called tequila.[11] In 1964, tequila makers were allowed to obtain up to 30% of the sugars in tequila from sources other than the agave plant.[10] During a blue agave shortage in the 1970s, Mexican regulations were further revised to require that tequila contain only 51.5% agave.[12] Agave plants take 10 to 12 years to mature and become ripe, while sugarcane can be harvested every year, so blending the agave spirit with sugarcane spirit is a cheaper method, while using 100% blue agave plant is more expensive.[18]

The Cuervo Express[edit]

The Jose Cuervo Express train was opened to visitors in February 2012 to help promote tourist development in the Jalisco area. The train travels 60 kilometers from Guadalajara to Tequila, taking 2 hours to journey through the agave fields and past volcanoes. Upon arrival in Tequila, guests are able to take a tour of the Jose Cuervo factory and La Rojeña distillery.[16]

Types of tequila[edit]

Silver[edit]

Tequila is naturally clear after fermentation and distillation are complete. This type is called “blanco” or “white”. “Plata” or “silver” on the other hand, despite its color being the same as “blanco”, is an aged version of tequila which got decolorized after being kept in barrels for months or years.

Gold[edit]

After the fermentation and distillation processes, tequila can then be aged in oak barrels, giving it a golden hue. There are three variations of gold tequila. Reposados have a pale amber color, as they typically spend 2 to 12 months in oak barrels. Añejos have a darker gold color and more flavor contributions from the barrel, as they are typically aged 1 to 3 years in oak barrels. Extra añejo, which has an even darker color and richer flavor, is 100% blue agave and aged more than three years.[4][18][11] The occasionally smoky flavors of extra añejo tequilas have been compared to those typically found in brandy and scotch.[17] The extra añejo designation for tequilas aged more than three years was approved by Mexico's National Committee on Standardization in 2006.[17]

Jose Cuervo tequilas[edit]

Especial Silver[edit]

Cuervo Especial products are mixto tequilas. Especial Silver is an unaged white tequila containing at least 51% agave, with the remainder being made up of sugarcane spirit.[18]

Especial Reposado[edit]

Especial Reposado (commonly referred to as "Cuervo Gold") is a blend of reposado and younger tequilas of at least 51% agave, with caramel coloring added to the finished product to give it the gold color, also known as joven tequila.[4][19][20]

Cinge[edit]

In 2013, Proximo launched Jose Cuervo Cinge, a cinnamon-infused 35% abv version of Especial Silver.[21][22][23] It is one of many cinnamon-infused liquors on the market. See Fireball and discussion therein.[A]

Tradicional[edit]

Cuervo's Tradicional has been produced since 1795.[5] Its varieties, Silver and Reposado, are 100% agave tequilas. The reposado achieves its amber color through six months of barrel aging. Silver was launched in 2011.[24]

Black[edit]

Cuervo Black was a mixto añejo tequila that included sugar cane spirit, aged one year in oak barrels. It was named on Bloomberg Businessweek's 2009 list of the world's 20 best-tasting tequilas.[25] It is no longer available.

Platino[edit]

Platino is 100% agave, handcrafted using a proprietary process in which the steam is recaptured to bring in more flavor before the tequila is chill-filtered. It was named on Bloomberg Businessweek's 2009 list of the world's 20 best-tasting tequilas,[8][25] and awarded the Beverage Tasting Institute's highest rating, Superlative.[26]

Reserva de la Familia[edit]

Reserva de la Familia was introduced in 1995 to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the distillery. Reserva de la Familia is a high-end offering of 100% blue agave tequila,[12] matured in the La Rojeña distillery's private cellars.[8] Its first edition sold out weeks after its release.[10] Reserva de la Familia is classified as an extra añejo tequila, meaning it is 100% agave aged over three years in an oak barrel, giving it a deeper golden color with a richer flavor more typically tasted in scotch or brandy.[17] It would become Cuervo's first extra añejo offering after the high-end distinction was created in 2005.[17] It was named on Bloomberg Businessweek's 2009 list of the world's 20 best-tasting tequilas,[25] and on a list of the 18 best tequilas in the world in Men's Journal in 2013.[27]

Margaritas[edit]

Cuervo offers several pre-made margaritas. The Authentic Margarita and Light Margarita varieties contain Cuervo Gold and are 9.95% alcohol by volume.[28] Golden Margarita contains Grand Marnier liqueur along with Cuervo Gold, and is 12.7% abv.[29] The Margarita Mix does not contain any alcohol.[30]

1800[edit]

Main article: 1800 Tequila

1800 Tequila, owned by Jose Cuervo and previously labeled Cuervo 1800 before being distributed by Proximo Spirits starting in 2008, is a 100% agave tequila, available in various silver, reposado and añejo varieties.[31]

Honors and awards[edit]

Volleyball[edit]

In 1979, Jose Cuervo became beach volleyball's first major sponsor. After the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP) tour folded in 2010, the Jose Cuervo Pro Beach Volleyball Series was launched in 2011 by IMG and USA Volleyball with three events across the US, and upped the number to seven in 2012.[33][34] With the return of the AVP tour in 2013, the Cuervo Series was not continued.[35]

In popular culture[edit]

Cuervo Gold is referred to in Steely Dan's song "Hey Nineteen", on their album Gaucho, released in 1980. The lyric is, "The Cuervo Gold / The fine Colombian / Make tonight a wonderful thing."[36]

In 1978, after a stint as a poster girl for Jose Cuervo Tequila, Cindy Jordan wrote a country song titled "Jose Cuervo", the first song she ever wrote. The song references the tequila in the lyrics, "Jose Cuervo, you are a friend of mine."[37] Recorded by Shelly West in 1983, it was named Billboard magazine's 1983 Country Song of the Year[37] after reaching number 1 on the Billboard country songs chart.[38]

The song "Ten Rounds with Jose Cuervo" by country music artist Tracy Byrd documents a man's night drinking Cuervo after his girlfriend breaks up with him. It reached number 1 on the Billboard country songs chart in 2002.[39] Other country songs that mention the liquor are "The Dope Smokin' Song" by Hank Flamingo and "Drink Canada Dry" by David Allan Coe.

In the 2004 MMORPG game World of Warcraft, there are some items referencing Jose Cuervo, like "Cuergo's Gold" and "Hozen Cuervo".

In Carrie Underwood's 2008 song Last Name (song) describing a woman meeting a man at a club and later eloping with him in Las Vegas after having had too much to drink that night, Cuervo tequila is referenced in the line "So I'll blame it on the Cuervo".

Cuervo Silver is shown to be enjoyed on multiple occasions on the Showtime series Dexter (2006–13).

A moody 2013 ad campaign for Cuervo Especial starred actor Kiefer Sutherland.[40]

Beyoncé references Jose Cuervo on her 2016 song "Formation", from her album Lemonade, with the line, "I twirl on my haters, albino alligators / El Camino with the seat low, sippin’ Cuervo with no chaser."[41]

As the best-selling tequila brand in the world, Jose Cuervo has fueled countless escapades at bars and nightclubs around the world. With a rich history dating back more than two centuries and the oldest active distillery in Latin America, Cuervo has plenty of stories of its own.

Some of the tales are a little iffy, like Cuervo’s claim to inventing the Margarita. But a lot of the stories are firmly rooted in history, from the brand claiming the first ever official tequila production license, to the huge debt of gratitude tequila-loving Americans owe the early rail workers.

Whether you drink añejo neat or prefer ice cold Margaritas, read on to learn a little bit more about Cuervo.

Don't miss a drop!

Cuervo Got a Royal Start.

Cuervo might seem like a 20th-century college mainstay, but it actually got its start with a royal grant of land. In 1758, José Antonio de Cuervo y Valdés obtained “a writ of land ownership” from King Ferdinand VI of Spain to grow agave for tequila production. By 1781, the Cuervo family was producing 800,000 liters per year — a drop in the bucket compared to the approximately 35 million liters it sold in 2020.

The Brand Claims a Big ‘First.’.

By 1795, after first attempting to prohibit foreign distilleries, King Carlos IV granted Jose María Guadalupe Cuervo y Montana the first (as in first-ever) license “to produce and distribute tequila” in the rich, volcanic soils of what is known today as Jalisco, Mexico. The family soon founded the “Taberna de Cuervo” and began legally distilling agave and selling tequila commercially.

The Brand Was Started By The Cuervos, But It’s Owned By The Beckmann’s.

Like many illustrious spirits brands, Cuervo started as a small, family-owned operation. But today, Cuervo is primarily owned by the billionaire Beckmann family based out of Mexico City. While the name has changed, the Beckmann’s are technically seventh generation direct-line descendants of the original Cuervo.

Cuervo Was The First To-Go Glass.

It may seem like late timing, but when Jose Cuervo started putting its tequila in glass bottles in the late 19th century, it was actually the first tequila company to do so, all the other distillers were using barrels. Demand was so high that the only way to keep the good stuff flowing was by parceling it out. To the delight of tequila lovers north of the border, glass made the liquid easier to transport and export. That same year, in 1880, Cuervo won first-place at the second Exposición de Las Clases Productoras exhibition held in Guadalajara.

We’ve Been Drinking Cuervo Since The 19th Century. (Not Continuously.)

We can thank the rise of the railroad for bringing Cuervo to the States. The tequila made its first stop in California in 1852, just in time to help gold rushers drown their sorrows when the shiny rocks they’d gathered turned out to be fool’s gold.

Some Cuervo Is Mixto.

“Mixto” is the term given to a tequila in which only 51 percent of the alcohol comes from agave (specifically Blue Weber) and the rest from sugarcane juice. The brand’s lower-end products, Jose Cuervo Especial Silver and Gold, are mixto, with labels reading “Made with Agave.” This tequila is pepper-hot, and not the best quality, but a few more dollars will get you into pure agave territory.

Plenty Of Cuervo Is Pure Agave.

Cuervo’s Tradicional Silver is 100 percent agave, and is priced right at around $20. The Reposado is a little sweeter with less piquant pepper, and is usually available for about $30. On the higher end is the Reserva de La Familia Reposada, coming in around $80, noted for an oaky depth and balanced flavor profile.

Cuervo Knows How To Get Fancy.

When only the finest will do, there’s the $140 Reserva de la Familia Añejo Max, in which the art of tequila making is on display. Only the most flavorful pulps from 10-12-year old agave vines are slow-cooked at the brand’s famous La Rojeña distillery. The liquid is then aged in toasted American and French oak barrels, after which master distiller Alex Coronado blends the three-year-old, super-premium tequila before signing and dating the wax-sealed, handmade bottles.

A Cocktail Waitress Wrote A Pretty Good Sing-Along Song About Cuervo.

Cindy Jordan, once named “Miss Jose Cuervo,” wrote the ode to Cuervo in 1977 while working as a waitress in southern California, but country singer Shelly West made it famous in 1983. As the lyrics go, “Jose Cuervo, you are a friend of mine. I like to drink you with a little salt and lime.” Many people can relate.

Speaking of Music, Cuervo Was Part Of The ‘Cocaine And Tequila Sunrise Tour.’

The Rolling Stones supposedly tasted their first Tequila Sunrises — a drink made famous by the Eagles’ song — at a bar called The Trident in San Francisco. Whether or not it was made with Cuervo is unclear, but it is pretty certain that Cuervo was the drink of choice on board the Lapping Tongue (the tour plane’s nickname, for obvious reasons).

Cuervo Loves Beach Volleyball.

Cuervo was the first major sponsor of a beach volleyball tournament in 1978. As regulations prohibited spirits companies from advertising on television at the time, creative marketers began sponsoring sporting events that would be televised in order to get brands’ logos seen across the world. 

Cuervo’s Recycling Agave Stalks Into Surfboards.

Cuervo is a major contributor to the professional surfing scene. As a sign of what’s to come in terms of sustainability, surfboards fashioned out of agave wood made a splash at the Cuervo Surf Classic in 2020.

Billions Were Made With Cuervo’s IPO.

Chairman Juan Francisco Beckmann Vidal led Cuervo, and its parent company Becle, through the brand’s initial public offering in 2017 — netting $5.3 billion for the Beckmann family in the process. 

Cuervo Sells More Than Just Tequila.

Not one to miss out on trends, Jose Cuervo made a splash when it released its Playamar Hard Seltzers. Made with Cuervo tequila, these beverages are incredibly sessionable at  4.5 percent ABV. The company struggled to keep up with demand for Margarita mixes in 2020, as quarantined Margarita lovers snatched up cases of Cuervo’s 1.75-liter ready-to-drink bottled Margs and four-packs of canned cocktails.

You Can Take A Luxury Train Ride To The Distillery.

The Beckmann family wants to turn the town of Tequila into a travel destination, not unlike a Napa Valley for tequila fans, complete with luxury hotels and high end restaurants. The main attraction, of course, is the tequila. For those who like to travel in style, the Jose Cuervo Express travels from Guadalajara to the Mundo Cuervo facilities.The Elite Wagon includes an open bar with “a line of cocktails designed exclusively for this experience, made with the finest spirits, including Tequila Maestro Dobel, Centenario, 1800, and Reserva de la Familia.”

History

If you’re like me, the second you see the title of this review you’re going to have a certain country song stuck in your head. Cuervo is one of the most ubiquitous names in tequila — probably because its the single most popular tequila in the world. And since my current margarita addiction has me reviewing lots of tequila, we obviously need to go at least three rounds with Jose Cuervo.

As I said, there is no bigger name in the tequila industry than Jose Cuervo.

In 1758, Don José Antonio de Cuervo was granted a plot of land in the (soon to be Mexican) town of Tequila. Here, he would build a farm with his family where they would cultivate the blue agave plant that was native to the area and, in 1795, the family distilled and produced their first bottle of mezcal (side note for those who don’t quite understand the differentiation: scotch is to whiskey as tequila is to mezcal).

It would take some time for the Cuervo family to embrace their distilling calling, but by 1880 the family had started commercially producing their spirits for sale. Known originally as “mezcal de Tequila” (mezcal from the town of Tequila), the Mexican government eventually — after much lobbying — allowed them to designate their spirits as a unique appellation known simply as “tequila.” The very first bottle of Jose Cuervo Tequila rolled off the line in 1906 and a massive new category of distilled spirits was born.

The company would achieve a massive level of success, with roughly 1 out of every 5 bottles of tequila sold worldwide being Jose Cuervo. The business would remain in the family through the years, eventually ending up in 1966 being owned by a relative named Juan Beckmann Gallardo. In 1989, the family sold 45% of the business to a distribution company which would eventually be acquired by Diageo, the British spirits giant. Diageo continued to distribute Jose Cuervo tequila and were in talks to acquire the remainder of the business from the family until talks fell through in 2012. Rather than try to find another distribution company the Beckmann family decided to start their own distribution business called Proximo Spirits and handle the entire process from growing the agave through to stocking shelves on their own.

Proximo Spirits also produces the Kraken Black Spiced Rum, as well as Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey. They in turn are owned by the Mexican alcoholic beverage giant Becle.

This type of tequila is referred to as a “mixto”, which is a lower quality version of tequila that uses a mixture of at least 51% blue agave plants and other sugars. The agave plants are harvested and have their leaves sliced off, leaving the hard core behind. That core is then cooked for about three days in an oven to convert the plant material into sugar, and then placed into large vats to ferment and allow yeast to convert that sugar into alcohol.

Once the fermentation is complete, what remains is a mildly alcoholic liquid that isn’t nearly pure or strong enough to be tequila. The next step in the process is to distill it twice in copper pot stills, which concentrates the spirits and raises the alcohol level. After distillation, the newly produced tequila is mixed with other distilled alcohol to create the final product.

There’s nothing particularly special about this bottle.

The design of the bottle itself is a little interesting in that it’s square instead of round, but it is still designed to fit in a standard speed well of a bar and not necessarily on the back shelf. The bottle is capped off by a metal screw-on cap.

The label on the front of the bottle is, if possible, less exciting than the bottle itself. It’s just a slightly stylized version of the brand name, with a bright blue label at the bottom promoting the fact that this was distilled from blue agave plants. (…but not 100% blue agave plants. A lie of omission, perhaps.)

The majority of what’s coming off this crystal clear glass of liquid is the usual tequila notes you’d expect. There’s a good bit of lemon zest citrus mixed with some herbal elements, like fresh cut grass, that produce the textbook tequila aroma. But there’s also a slight hint of industrial alcohol that’s sneaking in there as well, almost as if someone across the room is using some nail polish remover.

Taking a sip, there’s an unfortunate bitterness that’s present here. It starts slowly, with just a hint of a bite at the beginning… but by the finish, it’s damn near the most prominent aspect of the flavor profile. Which is unfortunate since the other flavors in here are pretty good. The citrus and herbal notes make it through from the aroma to the flavor, and there’s even a touch of that black pepper spice you’d expect. But it’s all overshadowed by that bitterness, which is all you’ll remember.

Usually with a little bit of ice, the more unpleasant aspects of a spirit are significantly toned down. Which is good, because this spirit is more bitter than a snubbed ex-girlfriend. Once the ice cubes are added, the bitterness cools off a bit — not completely, it’s still there in the background… but it isn’t as “shouty” as before.

The trade off is that with the reduced unpleasantness, the lighter and sweeter notes also disappear as well. There’s a touch of the original herbal notes in here still, but the majority of the flavor has simply disappeared. The lemon zest is gone, and the black pepper spice is barely noticeable.

You’re about 90% of the way to being vodka at this point.

This is probably the best (and possibly only good) use for this tequila. The bitterness is completely masked by the mixers and the added ice, and what’s left is just the herbal elements that contribute to the flavor of the cocktail.

I’d say this meets the bare minimum qualifications here, but there’s no flair or uniqueness that it brings to the party. Just mediocre tequila.

With a spirit as light and delicate as tequila, the details matter. You can hide unpleasant flavors much easier in something like a bourbon or even a reposado tequila; however, when it’s just the raw spirit shipped out the door, there is no good way to mask any of the imperfections.

That’s unfortunately what has happened here. The fact that this is a “mixto” tequila that uses a blend of alcohols means you aren’t getting the same quality as the 100% blue agave version, and that additional alcohol is where things go off the rails. As we see with the 1800 Silver, which is pretty much just a pure 100% blue agave version of this, the base tequila is great. The mixing is what kills it.

Three rounds of this sounds like three rounds too many.

Jose Cuervo Especial Silver
About the Jose Cuervo Especial Silver
One of two varieties of Jose Cuervo Especial, the leading mixto tequilas on the market. Don't let their popularity fool you, though—this stuff isn't great. Made with 51% blue agave (the bare minimum to be called a tequila) and 49% other junk, it's no wonder people think tequila gives them headaches. Fine for mixing in a well Margarita, but we wouldn't recommend sipping it neat.

Jose Cuervo Tradicional Jose cuervo silver tequila review

José Antonio de Cuervo y Valdés was granted a plot of land by King Ferdinand VI to plant agave in 1758, but wasn’t granted a permit to produce tequila commercially until 1795.

The firm didn’t start bottling tequila until nearly a century later in 1880, and up until that point, producers were shipping by the barrel. Jose Cuervo enjoyed success in the 19th century, but demand rocketed in the 20th century thanks to prohibition in America, when it was smuggled over the border. Today, Jose Cuervo is a huge operation and the company is working to make production more sustainable – it recently launched biodegradable agave straws, for example.

What does Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver tequila taste like?

Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver is processed before bottling to conserve flavour at freezing temperatures. So, the bottle can be jose cuervo silver in the freezer, making it ideal for spontaneous margaritas. The nose offers hints of aloe vera alongside a strong agave character – indeed, agave dominates the palate, along with punches of green pepper and lime. It’s well-balanced, offering a neutrality that makes it a go-to for cocktail makers.

Try Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver in a Cuervo salty perro cocktail. Mix two measures of Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver with 100ml grapefruit juice and a dash of Angostura bitters in a tall glass rimmed with salt, then top up with jose cuervo silver water.
