| Limited in production and distribution, each Reserva is hand-bottled, labeled, numbered, boxed and sealed in wax with the Cuervo family crest. Distilling tequila is an art and not only an art but a Mexican art. A passion for Mexico, tequila and Mexican art inspired Cuervo to celebrate each year's distinctive blend by commissioning a different Mexican artist to handcraft a limited edition wooden box. 2002 - Louis Zarate|
