The number 16 holds significant importance for Casa Dragones Tequila. General Ignacio Allende was a leader of the Dragones who worked closely with Father Hidalgo in Mexico’s Independence movement. On September 16th, 1810, Father Hidalgo delivered his famous independence speech. This important date in Mexican history is honored with a ‘16’ on every label and on the bottom of every Casa Dragones Blanco bottle. Coincidentally, 16 is also the number in the address at La Casa Dragones.

Co-founded in 2008 by CEO and the first female Maestera Tequilera, Bertha González Nieves, Tequila Casa Dragones is crafted in small batches of no more than 500 cases at a time to ensure the highest quality.
If you ever find yourself on the narrow cobbled street in San Miguel de Allende where Casa Dragones is located, you can walk right past the iron gates and visit the original stables that date back to 1671 and where the Dragones spent much of their time. The stables have been transformed into a private home but you can get a private tour and witness the magic behind the closed doors of their showroom: discover the innovative process and the unique crafting techniques that result in Tequila Casa Dragones.
Instead of traditional methods, Tequila Casa Dragones uses a modern and sustainable approach of steam and water to extract the sugars from the agave plant, followed by a multiple distillation process to bring forward the complex and sweet notes of the agave. This production process is known to be one of the most sustainable in the industry.
You can taste Casa Dragones Tequilas at private tastings at Casa Dragones at the “smallest Tequila bar in the world”. Available for groups of up to 6 people, you’ll be offered their three Tequila styles. For more information, check the Casa Dragones official website.
