Gabriel Orozco Special Edition
Tequila Casa Dragones and renowned artist Gabriel Orozco have collaborated on a special edition in honor of his mid life retrospective.
Tequila Casa Dragones accompanied Orozco on his retrospective tour held in four leading museums throughout 2011, from MoMA in New York City, Kunstmuseum in Basel, Switzerland, Tate Modern in London, to Centre Pompidou in Paris.
“Our collaboration with Gabriel Orozco marks an extremely exciting moment for Casa Dragones as we celebrate Mexican contemporary art and Mexican craftsmanship with the world.” Says Bertha González Nieves, Co-Founder and CEO of Casa Dragones Tequila.
Each crystal bottle of Casa Dragones Joven is engraved with Gabriel Orozco’s Black Kites motif, based on one of the artist’s most iconic works of art, and includes Orozco’s signature. Black Kites, 1997 is a human skull covered in an intricate graphic checkerboard, representing the two sides of life that are constantly at odds; the grid represents rationality and the skull represents uncertainty.
Artist, Gabriel Orozco says, “Casa Dragones accompanied me on my tour, and I was very proud to have the finest Mexican tequila with me to celebrate this important time of my life.”
Handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail, only 400 special edition bottles have been produced, each bottle signed numbered and dated by hand. There are only a few bottles still available. Contact our Concierge at 646-330-4678 or Concierge@CasaDragones.com for more information or to order.
