The Importance of 16
General Ignacio Allende, head of the Queen’s army and leader of the Dragones, worked closely with Father Hidalgo to spark Mexico’s Independence movement. On September 16th, 1810, Father Hidalgo delivered his cry of independence speech, known as “El Grito.”
Casa Dragones bottles commemorate this important date in Mexican history with a ‘16’ on its label and a ‘16’ inscribed on the bottom of every Casa Dragones Blanco bottle. 16 is also the address at La Casa Dragones.
