Coming off the heels of Cinco de Mayo, many might be thinking twice about inviting tequila to the party. If your head hurts, your mouth is dry, and your liver is crying: you probably overdid it. Next time, celebrate in style with a luxury sipping tequila like Casa Dragones, your body will thank you.

Whiskey and scotch have some stiff competition these days. Luxury brands are crafting sipping spirits from rum to tequila that will easily compete with their caramel-colored counterparts. One of our favorites to hit the market is the high-end sipping tequila Casa Dragones. 

No lime or salt should come near this refined tequila. Casa Dragones is flecked with hints of spice, illuminated by florals and goes down as a seriously smooth spirit. This tasty tequila has quickly become the darling of top chefs everywhere. From Thomas Keller to Eric Ripert and Daniel Boulud, serious toques are tipping their hat to Casa Dragones.

Each bottle of Casa Dragones is made from pure crystal that has been signed and individually engraved. While the packaging is stunning, the true gem lies within. Handcrafted in Tequila, Mexico, Casa Dragones is a small batch tequila made with 100% Blue Agave Joven. This innovative tequila was co-founded by  Bertha González Nieves, the first woman ever to be accredited as a Maestra Tequilera. Each bottle is hand-finished by Casa Dragones’ Maestro Tequilero with an extra hint of añejo to balance out the platinum tequila.
