Notes

The Cuervo name traces its history all the way back to 1758 with Jose Antonio Cuervo. The name quickly grew for the next 100 years to include somewhere between 2.5 million and 5 million agave plants on over 10,000 hectares by the turn of 20th century. Unfortunately, in the 1930s, the estate was broken up into smaller farmsteads. Grupo Cuervo was formed in 1979 after several different owners and managers of the Cuervo brand and assets. Since that time they have been neck-and-neck with Sauza in tequila production and working with international distributors. In 1998, they expanded their brand into premium tequilas, including some Coleccion Anejo tequilas that fetched $1,000 per bottle.

1800 tequilas are made by Casa Cuervo from 100% blue agave. The name comes from the "historic event" of aging tequila in oak for the very first time. The line was first launched in 1975 as a premium sipping tequila.

1800 Coleccion anejo tequila: yeah, that's almost $2,000 for a bottle of tequila! The website claims it "stands above all others..." we should hope so! The packaging comes in a unique pewter bottle and glass decanter. The tequila itself is a blend of older and younger tequilas all aged in French charred oak.

In an interesting write-up from On The House they said: "The 1800 is one of those fantasy tequilas, the ones that tequila lovers will use to convince me that tequila is as ageable and subtle as Cognac. It is remarkable; textured, smooth, but still fruity and piña-ful. I don't argue anymore about this, but I just think tequila's greatness shows best in its youth rather than under oak."
