A truly exceptional Añejo Tequila where nothing stands between you and the Spirit.

Casa Dragones is a newer producer of Tequila with an interesting history. The Spirit is made in Jalisco, but the company is located in Casa Dragones in San Miguel de Allende — the original home of a famous regiment of Mexican calvary who fought in the Mexican War for Independence. Bertha Gonzales Nieves is the co-founder and the first woman to be recognized as a Meastra Tequilera by The Tequila Regulatory Council. The other co-founder is Robert Pittman — creator of MTV and CEO of iHeartMedia. They have been producing 100% blue agave Tequila together since 2009.

There is a LOT to love here. The Spirit is great and traditional and 100% Weber blue agave and hand-crafted and yadda yadda yadda. But the magic here — what sets this Tequila apart — is the wood.

Casa Dragones Barrel Blend is NOT a "blended" Tequila. Not really. Importantly, it is a blend of NEW European oak and NEW American oak barrels. Because oak barrels are expensive things, they get used and reused. That’s really why so many Spirits use ex-Bourbon casks — there are a lot of them. The problem is that as awesome as ex-Bourbon casks are, they make everything taste a little bit like Bourbon. That’s not a bad thing. But NEW casks mean that you get to taste this exceptionally fine Tequila as pure Tequila. Agave, oak, and time… Boom!
