Casa Dragones has unveiled its fourth tequila expression, Casa Dragones Reposado Mizunara. The new offering is the first tequila rested exclusively in Mizunara, the iconic Japanese oak famous for aging whiskies.

Casa Dragones imported their first Japanese casks in 2018. Then the brand began working with Japan’s only independent cooperage to craft brand new casks of 100% Mizunara with a custom char in which to rest their new tequila.

“Innovation is what we like to do best, to explore the possibilities within the tequila category, said Casa Dragones Co-Founder and CEO, Bertha González Nieves. “Which is why we’re excited to continue our journey of taste with Casa Dragones Reposado Mizunara, rested in a rare Japanese oak that marries beautifully with our tequila. I think that tequila lovers out there and spirit aficionados in general will be very excited to experience something completely different.”

Mizunara yields only half as much timber as other oaks. Characterized by their twisting trunks and branches, these ancient trees can grow up to 200 years before they are harvested and then handcrafted into the highest quality casks in Japan.

Casa Dragones Reposado Mizunara delivers notes of magnolia and orange blossom on the nose, with hints of butterscotch and oak on the palate, and a long warm finish of coffee bean and mellow spice.

Yana Volfson, Beverage Director of Casamata Group, says, “Casa Dragones Reposado Mizunara is a showcase of Mexican craftsmanship that combines the expertise of Japanese barrel-making with the craftsmanship of tequila production, and is unlike anything I’ve ever tasted before.”

Casa Dragones also remains committed to modern, sustainable production. Recognized by the Tequila Regulatory Council as using the most sustainable method of tequila production in the industry for each of its 100% Blue Agave Sipping Tequilas, Casa Dragones’ modern process utilizes less water and less energy than other methods, and also produces far less waste. In addition, the agave fibers are recycled into fertilizer for their fields, while the vinasses, or distillation liquid waste, is used in the fields as irrigation.

Casa Dragones Reposado Mizunara tequila will be available nationwide in September for $169.99 per bottle and can be purchased online at the brand’s official website.
