Tequila Terroir

Like champagnes, cognacs, and some fine wines, tequila has an appellation of origin. This means tequila can only be produced in certain regions in Mexico. The harvest for Casa Dragones is cultivated on an estate 1200 meters above sea level in Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico. Here, the combination of soil, climate and altitude produces the ideal agave plants to create the signature taste of Casa Dragones.

The Valley of Tequila

Agave Azul Tequilana Weber, the agaves used for Tequila, can only be grown in the states of Jalisco, Michoacan, Nayarit, Guanajuato or Tamaulipas. Spirits from agaves grown in any other region cannot be called tequila. The agaves for Casa Dragones Tequila are hand-harvested in The Valley of Tequila, in Jalisco, in the rich agricultural lands of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt. Here, the soil is semi-arid and semi-humid, ideal for the harvest of our sweet agave plants.
