2 Jose Cuervo Reserva De La Familia Extra Añejo
The world’s first extra-añejo tequila, each bottle of the Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Extra-Añejo is made using blue agave that has been harvested after seven to 12 years in the field.

4 1800 Cristalino
1800 Cristalino is timeless for a reason: the tequila, considered the world’s first premium bottling, was founded in the year 1800. Aged in American and French oak barrels for 16 months, this añejo tequila is finished in Port wine casks for an additional six months before being filtered. Its smoothness and drinkability make it the ultimate holiday gift, and a timeless tequila classic.

Serious tequila drinkers require the glassware to match, and these Riedel Ouverture tequila glasses are serious glasses, indeed. Designed to amplify the spirit’s natural aromas, this set of sipping glasses is simply de rigueur for the home bar.
6 Maestro Dobel 50
Aged in American oak and Eastern oak barrels for over three years, the Maestro Dobel 50 Tequila Extra-Añejo Cristalino uses only the best agave, which has been hand-harvested prior to the rainy season. Tequila is fermented traditionally, in copper stills, yielding a clean, distinctive tequila that really performs. The distinctive bottling is a work of art and makes this an even more attractive gift this holiday season.
7 Limited Edition Tequila Bottle Lamp
Tequila obsessives might find the glow of a bottle of 1800 tequila particularly soothing. Cleveland, Ohio’s Light Up Lamps has fashioned a limited-edition 1800 silver tequila bottle into a bespoke lamp, the ideal addition for any tequila-friendly home bar.
8 Jose Cuervo Reserva De La Familia Reposado
The passionate Reposado drinker will drool over the Cuervo Reserva de La Familia Reposado, which is produced in limited quantities from the family’s private reserve. This line of tequilas was introduced in 1995, in commemoration of the Cuervo family’s 200-year-old tequila legacy. The full-bodied Reposado is well-suited for the tequila drinker who prefers toastier, spicer notes on the finish.

12 Gran Centenario Leyenda
The Gran Centenario Leyenda combines 100 percent blue agave with four years in French Limousin oak barrels—along with tequila reserves that have been aged for up to 15 years—for a resulting spirit that is complex, rich, spicy, and woody. This amber-colored tequila is for those who prefer a full-flavored style of tequila. It is a luxurious gift, right down to its exquisite bottle.
