Casa Dragones Tequila Joven

Posted by CrushWine

Tequila's Terroir

Casa Dragones is made from 100% blue agave grown in the Valley of Tequila in Jalisco, Mexico. The soil, rich in potassium and silica, imparts a mouth-watering minerality that's, frankly, a little bit evocative of our favorite dry Riesling or Muscadet. After a long maturity, the agave's massive, ripe piñas yield a sweet nectar that is fermented and distilled into tequila.

Finishing School

This is what truly gives this tequila its unparalleled finesse. Fermented nectar is distilled multiple times to separate the lightest spirit. It is then blended with a discreet amount of extra-añejo tequila, aged for five years in new American oak casks. The mixture is fined one last time to leave a brilliantly clear, lustrous tequila Joven.

Save the Bottle

The bottle, a work of art in itself, is made in Mexico from lead-free crystal. Its base is engraved by hand with a spectacular starburst, reminiscent of the agave plant's leaves. Each bottle is hand-numbered and labeled, showing how truly small-production this tequila is.
