CASA DRAGONES ON TOP CHEF SEASON FINALE 2015
Featured in Top Chef
As the preferred tequila of top chefs and the culinary community, Casa Dragones was featured on the three-episode Season Finale of Bravo’s Top Chef, filmed entirely in our hometown of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
The finale began with Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco signature cocktails crafted by Mexico’s top mixologists Osvaldo Vazquez and Moises Sierra. Challengers and judges Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons and Padma Lakshmi enjoyed the Pink Panther and the Mexci Dragones as they took in the sights of San Miguel de Allende.

The final dinner was hosted in Chef Donnie Masterton’s The Restaurant and at Cent’anni, where finalists Mei Lin and Gregory Gourdet created Mexican-inspired dishes including Congee Carnitas, Braised Duck with Huitlacoche, Short Ribs Mole and Striped Bass with Tomatillo, all served with Tequila Casa Dragones Joven. Celebrity guest judges included Enrique Olvera, Hugh Acheson, Richard Blais, Sean Brock, Michael Cimarusti, Matteo Salas, Traci Des Jardins and Gavin Kaysen.
When not in the kitchen or at the judging table, challengers and judges visited La Casa Dragones, where they enjoyed a tasting and presentation on the innovative process and craft techniques that result in our signature tasting tequilas.
