Jose Cuervo tequila was founded by Don José Antonio de Cuervo in 1812, the La Rojeña distillery is the oldest active distillery in the whole of Latin America. The Cuervo family story starts in 1758 when they were issued a land grant by King Ferdinand VI of Spain, and it was on this land where they founded the Taberna de Cuervo, a farm where they would harvest the blue agave plant. The entrepreneurial spirit that lead to the distillery was still on show when in 1880 Jose Cuervo was the first distiller to individually bottle tequila, little did they realise this decision would be the catalyst that would see Jose Cuervo becoming the first Internationally exported tequila and lead to Jose Cuervo being the world’s largest Tequila brand.
The Cuervo brand and distillery remains the original family business with the 11th generation now in control. Through the generations the family names altered through marriage and is owned by the Beckmann family. The brand produces Silver tequila, Gold tequila, Reposado tequila and Extra Anejo tequila.
Jose Cuervo is best known for its Jose Cuervo Gold and Jose Cuervo Silver products, most people introduced to these products as a shot with salt and a bite of lime. The Jose Cuervo brand also produce excellent aged Tequila in Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Extra Anejo and Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Platino.
Jose Cuervo is owned by the Beckmann family who also own other tequila brands like 1800 tequila, Maestro Dobel and Gran Centenario, all of which are produced at the La Rojeña distillery. The Beckmann family also founded, created and developed Don Julio before selling it to Diageo in 2014. Whilst the Jose Cuervo brand is missing products like Reposado tequila and Anejo tequila, the owning company have normally released these through its other brands.

We treat all personalised bottles individually, taking our time and experience to set out your message to create the most impactful bottle decoration possible. This may include increase the size of some fonts within the message to pay particular focus on key lines or phrases, spacing message over extra lines and removing unnecessary punctuation.
If you can type it, we can engrave it! When using alternative languages it may be neccessary for us to alter the font to ensure all characters are supported, in these cases we use the closest style font to your original selection.
Unfortunatley we are unable to engrave emoji's or picture characters. Where these are added the character will be removed from your message.
We specially select the fonts we use. Once a bottle has been engraved the cut glass is then infilled with a special decorative silver paste. These fonts ensure we provide the optimum width and depth during the engraving process to creat maximum visibility once infilled.
The fonts we currently use are: Lucida Calligraphy, Lucida Handwriting, Verdana and Segoe Print.
