History for Jose Cuervo Sangrita
King Ferdinand VI of Spain granted Don José Antonio de Cuervo a land grant in Tequila, Jalisco, in 1758.
His family established the Taberna de Cuervo, a farm where they would cultivate and harvest the blossoming blue agave plant, a water-retentive plant native to central Mexico and used to make tequila.
The first Vino Mezcal de Tequila de Jose Cuervo was produced in 1795, after Don José Antonio de Cuervo’s son José Mara Guadalupe de Cuervo was granted permission by King Carlos IV of Spain to commercially brew tequila after a period of prohibition under King Carlos III.
The tequila industry was born at this time.
