The female-founded and female-led premier tequila brand Casa Dragones has released its fourth masterpiece: Casa Dragones Reposado Mizunara, the first tequila aged in mizunara, an oak native to Japan that is traditionally used for aging Japanese whiskies. Japanese oak—characterized by its twisting trunks and branches—is much rarer than its European and American counterparts. The tree typically yields only half as much timber as other oaks, and can grow up to 200 years before it is harvested and handcrafted into the highest-quality casks in Japan. Casa Dragones Reposado delivers subtle notes of magnolia and orange blossom on the nose, with hints of butterscotch and oak on the palate, and a long, warm finish of coffee bean and mellow spice.
“Innovation is what we like to do best, to explore the possibilities within the tequila category,” says Casa Dragones co-founder and CEO Bertha González Nieves, the first female Maestra Tequilera certified by the Academia Mexicana de Catadores de Tequila. “We’re thrilled to continue our journey of taste with Casa Dragones Reposado Mizunara. Tequila lovers out there and spirit aficionados in general will be very excited to experience something completely different.”
A tequila house committed to sustainable production, Casa Dragones has been recognized by the Tequila Regulatory Council as having the most eco-friendly method of tequila production in the industry. Its process requires less energy than other methods, and also produces far less waste. The pure spring water used for Casa Dragones is enriched with a perfect balance of minerals.
