We individually craft every bottle by hand in Mexico City, using pure, lead-free crystal. Skilled artisans place the red-hot crystal in molds, one by one, until the shape takes hold.
The crystal is then sculpted, bathed, and polished by hand until it develops a lustrous shine. The simple shape of our bottle creates a beautiful and elegant decanter, which can be saved and re-used time and time again.
We are committed to Mexican craftsmanship, which is why each crystal bottle of Casa Dragones Joven is engraved by hand using the traditional Mexican technique of “pepita.” Literally translated, pepita means “small seed.”
The tradition first began in Spain and was brought to Mexico in the 1500s when Rodrigo de Espinoza opened Mexico’s first glass factory in Puebla. Each bottle of Casa Dragones Joven is hand engraved by one of the few Mexican artisans skilled at this magnificent technique.
HAND-LABELED AND SIGNED
Each bottle of Casa Dragones Joven is labeled, signed and numbered by hand, hallmarking the characteristics of a particular batch. The meticulous attention to detail that it takes to create each bottle of Casa Dragones can only be achieved by hand, not by machine.
