Description

Tequila Casa Dragones and Pedro Reyes are pleased to present this special edition bottle of Casa Dragones Joven as an exploration of the traditional Mexican technique of pepita glass engraving.

Reyes’ repertoire of work is largely inspired by the ideas of the philosopher Epicurus, whose teachings on wellbeing are artfully translated into sculptures by Reyes. Here, he’s chosen one of his pieces, “Epicuro” (2016), a 1.8-meter tall sculpture he carved from volcanic rock, to portray with pepita.

With this representation of “Epicuro,” the Casa Dragones crystal decanter’s typical delicate engravings encircling its neck and base have been traded for a single, elegantly hand-engraved design. Each of the 400 bottles made in this collection has been crafted with meticulous attention to detail and represent an approach to life.

“Epicuro”, both the original sculpture and this portrayal, embodies the delight in freedom from pain and fear. By pivoting the question of “how to be good” into “how to be happy,” the philosopher helped open up the path to self-awareness and wellness as a form of peace.

We are very pleased to be a part of Reyes’ innovative artistic vision and to explore Mexican craftsmanship in new creative contexts.
