About Casa Dragones

Hailing from the ideal terroir, the perfect combination of rich soil, perfect climate, and just the right altitude. Personally selected plants, matured to perfection and harvested by hand. Resting in oak barrels for five years. This might sound more like a winery than a tequila distillery, but you’d be wrong. Just like signature winemaking appellations like Champagne and Bordeaux, Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico, lays claim to the famous Mexican spirit. But this is not the tequila of sugary fuelled margaritas. You can leave your lime wedges and salt shakers at home, because Tequila Casa Dragones is meant to be sipped. Savored. And lingered over.

Tequila Casa Dragones is a small batch, luxury tequila producer crafted in Jalisco, Mexico, with meticulous attention to detail. The 100% Pure Blue Agave tequilas are the World’s #1 Sipping Tequila, giving the celebrated spirit a spot on the top shelf alonside coveted single-malt Scotch and fine whiskey. Just as you should take your time savoring Tequila Casa Dragones, they take their time making it, producing no more than 500 cases per batch. It all begins with the centuries-old art of tequila making modernized through an innovative state-of-the-art, sustainable process of elaboration. The results are tequilas that defy the ordinary.

Meticulous attention to detail, right down to the black ribbon hand-tie around the neck of each bottle. Each crystal bottle of Casa Dragones is hand-crafted by skilled artisans and signed, numbered, and hand engraved using the traditional Mexican technique of “pepita” by one of the few Mexican artisans skilled at this magnificent technique.

 

Meet the Maker, Bertha González Nieves

The first time Bertha González Nieves saw an agave field, she fell in love with the industry. A passion you can nearly taste in each sip of Tequila Casa Dragones. An entrepreneur with a career rooted in the consumer luxury goods industry, González Nieves was identified by Forbes as one of the most powerful women in Mexico. Her extensive, unparalleled knowledge of the industry and singular vision to revolutionize tequila led her on a journey to create a style of tequila with a profile unlike any other—Tequila Casa Dragones Joven, a limited-edition, uniquely smooth sipping tequila made in small batches with meticulous attention to detail. And in an industry dominated by men, she has been certified as the first female Maestra Tequilera by the Academia Mexicana de Catadores de Tequila, the organization recognized by The Tequila Regulatory Council (CRT).

The tequila’s name, Casa Dragones comes from the elite cavalry, the Dragones, whose passion sparked Mexico’s independence. Safe to say, González Nieves is blazing trails of her own, taken the familiar spirit to new and very luxurious heights.
