Jose Cuervo’s Reserva de la Familia


Jose Cuervo’s Reserva de la Familia The Rolling Stones Collectors’ Edition: It turns out Mick, Keith, and the guys like to drink. Who knew?

The packaging of this bottle commemorates The Rolling Stones’ longstanding love of tequila, but it’s what’s inside the bottle that makes this a true find for the agave lover on your holiday gift list.

While Cuervo is probably best known for its value plays, this is its Cadillac, an extra añejo aged in new French and American oak for three years. You won’t be making margaritas with this amber-hued pour, full of spice, oak, nuts, and caramel. You won’t mind drinking it neat, either, as it’s super smooth.

While it retails for $149, shop around and you’ll do much better than that. And if you’re not a Stones fan, every year a different Mexican artist does a special-edition label, too.
