ARTICLE 1997: In the battle of ultimate tequila supremacy, Jose Cuervo threw down the gauntlet in 1995 when it introduced Reserva de la Familia, then the most expensive tequila on the U. Soon, however, the Cuervo was chewing on the glove. Feeding the exclusive desires of an increasingly savvy consumer, the premium tequila arena quickly got very crowded. Suddenly, connoisseurs had scores of pricey beauties from which to choose: --El Tesoro, Herradura, Porfidio and Patron are among those who jumped on the ultra-premium tequila bandwagon, all vying to be the most expensive and rarest tequilas on the top shelf.
For Heublein which imports Cuervo, still the world's No. 1 tequila brand this could not be tolerated. It simply wouldn't do. "All of a sudden we had lost the top of that market, " says Kay Olsen, manager of Cuervo's super premium brands. We weren't the leaders anymore.It had become a shame. So Heublein (now called IDV North America) immediately got busy to reclaim its position at the top of the tequila market. To say 1800 Coleccion leapfrogged its ultra- and super-premium competitors is an understatement. Catapulted is even too tame. No, this was a to-the-moon maneuver that resulted in the world's most expensive tequila product (shown in photo at left). Our Products are 100% Authentic, unless specifically noted otherwise.
