Our journey of taste begins with a small batch, modern sustainable method of tequila production, meticulously handcrafting each bottle to deliver

an extraordinary sipping experience. Casa Dragones Barrel Blend, 100% Blue Agave Añejo tequila, achieves its distinctive character from being matured in two different wood barrels, new French Oak and new American Oak, each selected for their individual flavor and characteristics.

AN EXPLORATION OF WOOD
Innovation is at the heart of Casa Dragones. Working with one of France’s most respected cooperages, our Maestro Tequilero and our Master Cooper expertly crafted two different custom-made oak barrels in which to age our tequila, finding the perfect blend of wood to complement—not overpower—the signature taste of Casa Dragones.

A TALE OF TWO BARRELS
The wood used for our new French Oak barrels is
a proprietary blend of 100% Quercus Sessile Oak, sustainably sourced from five different forests in the center of France, then custom toasted to impart roundness and light spicy notes, while respecting the minerality of the soil. Our new American Oak barrels receive a custom medium toast, imparting the complexity of the agave and a beautiful aromatic intensity.

AN EXTRAORDINARY BARREL BLEND
At the end of the aging process, we artfully blend both barrel styles together to create infinite richness and an agave-forward taste profile that is both elegant and smooth. This is the journey of Casa Dragones Barrel Blend, an expression of woods and agave unlike any other.
