Bienvenidos to a new premium brand of 100% blue agave tequila, “Tequila Casa Dragones.” 

San Miguel’s own showcase tequila takes its name from the villa where it was launched, a colonial Spanish property dating from the 1600s — a beautiful home which you can also rent through San Miguel House Rentals under the name of Caballerizas Dragones.  

Tequila Casa Dragones is a uniquely smooth sipping tequila, handcrafted in small batches in Tequila, Jalisco.  Each limited edition crystal bottle is hand-engraved, numbered and signed, hallmarking the characteristics of its special harvest.   Now available at fine liquor stores and restaurants in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico City and New York, Tequila Casa Dragones is priced at 3500 MXN pesos or $275 USD per bottle.

NOTE:  As of early August 2009, Tequila Casa Dragones is featured at these restaurants in San Miguel:  The Restaurant at Calle Sollano #16, Restaurant/Bar Planta Baja at Calle Canal #28, Casa de Sierra Nevada (in both the bar and Restaurante Andanza at the Casa Principal at Calle Hospicio #35, as well as Restaurant Parque at Santa Elena #2), Ristorante da Andrea (at Hacienda de Landeta, just outside of town on the Carretera a Dr. Mora, Km. 2.5), the newly opened El Ochenta Restaurante at Calle Mesones # 80, Harry’s New Orleans Cafe at Calle Hidalgo #12,  Restaurante Pueblo Viejo at Calle Umaran #6,  and La Azotea roof terrace bar, also at Calle Umaran #6.

First shipments are still arriving at other outlets, but if you want to sample Tequila Casa Dragones in your San Miguel rental home, private orders are possible through the main marketing office in Mexico City.  Customers can contact Sandra Chollet directly for home delivery in San Miguel:
