Top-Tier Tequilas and Mezcals: The Gifts that Keep On Giving

Premium spirits are usually a wise and appreciated choice when giving gifts.
For the holidays, who wouldn't want to receive their favorite bottle? Favorites like tequila and mezcal are still appropriate in December because spirits aren't always seasonal. LiquorMates has a wide variety of options to make your Christmas shopping simpler, whether you're looking for a favorite mezcal, a tequila gift package, or even a personalized bottle of tequila.

The Personal Touch of Casa Dragones Joven

Liquor Mates is pleased to present Casa Dragones Joven calligraphed to your demands in terms of personalized tequila. With appearances on the "Top Chef" franchise and Netflix's "Chef's Table," the ultra-premium tequila from San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, is regarded as being of the highest caliber and having the best flavor. With Michelin-starred chefs and restaurants that have won James Beard Awards, the city is a popular travel destination for tequila and food connoisseurs from all over the world. The city is described as their "soul home" by Casa Dragones.

The name comes from the elite cavalry guard (dragones) to the queen. The unit was billeted in San Miguel de Allende, and the original stables – which date from 1671 – were known as La Casa Dragones. The company occupies the building to this day, so the tequila is deeply tied to the history of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Like all super-premium tequilas, Casa Dragones is meant to be sipped and savored. You’ll also find a Casa Dragones gift set with two bottles of Blanco and a complimentary ice tray in the LiquorMates store.

Comfort and Creativity in Prospero Tequila

As a gift for the tequila lover who also loves creatives that disrupt tradition, it’s hard to find a better choice than the Prospero Tequila line.

Made by master distiller Stella Anguiano – one of a handful of female master distillers – she is matter-of-fact about her role in Prospero: “As one of the first females in this industry, it is important for me to create something that other women can appreciate.” Available in Blanco, Reposado, and Añejo, this tequila is smooth and sippable with beautiful notes of vanilla and spice.

The Unforgettable Clase Azul Ultra

LiquorMates carries several unique and remarkable bottles of tequila, such as Clase Azul Ultra, if you're looking for a present that will leave a lasting impression.

The limited edition decanter – crafted from platinum, gold, and silver – is as beautiful as the tequila inside. The tequila itself is aged 5 years in American whiskey barrels and Spanish sherry casks. The nose is stewed fruit, hazelnuts, oak, sherry, and maple. On the palate, it’s cinnamon, caramel, stone fruit, and spice – a remarkable and unforgettable tasting experience.

Lobos 1707: Versatile and Traditional

Need to buy for someone who is a mezcal lover and a tequila lover? Lobos 1707 has a full line of tequila, including an Extra Añejo and a mezcal made from 100-percent espadin. 

Yes, NBA superstar LeBron James is the celebrity behind the product, but as is often the case, celebrities choose things they actually love to drink. In this case, it's tequila and mezcal steeped in tradition that dates back to 1707. That’s the year founder Diego Osorio’s great-great-grandfather started transporting tequila back to his native Spain. You can’t really taste history, but you can taste the commitment to craft and tradition that goes into every bottle of Lobos 1707.
