We are extremely proud at 31DOVER to be the exclusive online retailer of the exceptional Casa Dragones. This is a unique drink, so much so we figured it deserved its own blog post.
Let’s start with the presentation of this wonderful Tequila. Each bottle is hand crafted in Mexico City using the finest crystal, and then individually numbered and signed. The bottle is housed in a stunning presentation box and makes a very worthy celebration gift, if you’re after something more original than Champagne.
You can’t help but notice the brilliant platinum colour of Casa Dragones which is as a result of the complex distillation process during which all natural impurities are removed.
OK, enough of look and feel, let’s discuss aroma and taste.
As you open the bottle, the fresh citrus aroma bursts out alongside a subtle hint of floral perfume and notes of sweet roasted agave.
But, it’s the signature taste of Casa Dragones which is the all important factor and what makes this Tequila unique. This is a super-smooth and refined spirit, without any “wince” or harsh aftertaste; instead you’ll get a clean, extra soft finish.
The production process is pretty impressive too. Casa Dragones multiple-distil their Tequila with pure spring water, through an advanced column process that removes any natural impurities using an ultra-modern filtration system.
The Maestro Tequilero at Casa Dragones then hand finishes the process, adding the perfect amount of extra Añejo Tequila, rested in American oak barrels for over 5 years, to balance the taste. This final touch results in 100% Blue Agave Joven Tequila, one of the five official classifications of Tequila, defined by this delicate blend of platinum and extra Añejo.
And, if all that doesn’t make you feel special enough, for the third consecutive year, Casa Dragones was the selected Tequila at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in Los Angeles last night.
