Aged: No age statement
Product of: Mexico
Reserva de la Familia is aged for five years in a combination of new, 'toasted' French Limousin and ex-American whiskey casks, with addition of some reserve tequilas aged for more than 30 years. Steam collected from the ovens is condensed, distilled to purify and then used to hydrate the tequila to bottling strength.
Each bottle is hand-numbered, dated and sealed with wax. Every year the Cuervo family commissions a different Mexican artist to design the new collectible hand-painted wooden box. Only 17,000 bottles of Reserva De La Familia are produced each year.
