Jose Cuervo is a brand of tequila produced by Tequila Cuervo La Rojeña. According to the company, Jose Cuervo, in 1795, was the first producer of tequila in the world. As of April 2012, it is the largest selling tequila brand in the world, with a 19% volume share of the global market.

The majority of Jose Cuervo tequila is a 51% mixto tequilla, meaning that 51% of its alcohol content is fermented from the sugars of the agave plant The remainder is fermented from less expensive sugar sources. The Tradicional and Reserva Familia are 100% agave tequilas.

In 1758, Antonio de Cuervo received a land grant from King Ferdinand VI to start an agave farm in the Jalisco region of Mexico. He built a small factory on this land. In 1795, King Carlos IV gave the land grant to Cuervo's descendant, Jose María Guadalupe Cuervo. Carlos IV also granted the Cuervo family the first license to commercially make tequila, so they built a larger factory on the existing land. The family started packaging their wares in individual bottles in 1880. The distillery was named Fabrica La Rojeña. The tequila was exported to the United States for the first time in 1873. In 1900, Jose Cuervo Labastida decided to brand the tequila as Jose Cuervo. The company is now owned and run by heirs of the Cuervo family, the Beckmann family, who also owns the brand 1800 Tequila, among others.
