Jose Cuervo - Reserva de Famalia Extra Anejo 2019 Melanie SmithLimited Run
First released in 1995 to celebrate their 200th birthday, Jose Cuervo Reserva de La Familia is numbered, dated, and hand-dripped in wax to seal it. Every year the box is designed by a different artist making each vintage a collector's item.
This 2019 edition of Jose Cuervo's Reserva de la Familia extra añejo tequila once again showcases art in its presentation box. Featuring Art by Melanie Smith. Based on her recent exhibition at the Hacienda Cuervo titled Parteo Pedazo, Smith has designed four boxes for Reserva de la Familia. All are deeply linked to Mexican themes, which include elements from the murals of iconic artist Diego Rivera, prints of agave plants, old maps of the Tequila region of Mexico, and layouts of Jose Cuervo's La Rojeiia distillery. The figures form collages that juxtapose historical references, reflect the transition from the pre-Hispanic to the modern world and from the field to the machine.
Together, they form a rich, wide, and complex narrative, which underscores the position that tequila occupies in all areas of Mexican history and national symbology.
