Casa Dragones unveiled its first añejo tequila, the Casa Dragones Barrel Blend. This is the small-batch producers third sipping tequila style in 10 years, made from 100 percent blue agave añejo tequila. The latest expression is distinguished by its barrel aging process and rounds out the portfolio by appealing to aged spirits enthusiasts, including those who gravitate towards whiskeys. All of Casa Dragones’ tequilas are handcrafted with a modern, sustainable process of elaboration using the finest lowland agaves and spring water emanating from the headwaters of the Volcano of Tequila.

Casa Dragones custom-made two styles of Oak barrels, exploring the perfect blend of woods to complement, not overpower.

Casa Dragones Barrel Blend achieves its distinctive character from being matured in two different wood barrels, new French Oak and new American Oak, each selected for their individual flavor and characteristics, then toasted to impart roundness, light spice notes, and aromatic intensity. At the end of the aging process, Casa Dragones blends both barrel styles together yielding an agave-forward añejo tequila, with subtle notes of cacao, fig and spice.

Casa Dragones Barrel Blend is stored in elegant, smoked gray glass perfumer-style bottles individually numbered and signed to correspond to their batch. There are no more than 500 cases made at a time. Available at Total Wine & More and is poured at Zuma in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Elio at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas and Más Por Favor Taqueria y Tequila.

Tiffany & Co. offers its 1837® Makers square pendant and narrow chain bracelet. For the dad who always makes it a double, order up the Tiffany 1837 Makers cocktail shaker, cocktail tray and cocktail jigger and the Diamond Point single old-fashioned glass and bar spoon. And for the Dad who always makes the time, there's the Tiffany 1837 Makers 27mm square watch.

Get dad a facial at The Layer Lounge. He can take a nap in a massaging zero-gravity recliner while receiving a facial focused on skin health and deep cleaning. To take home, try the shower mists that make daily bathing a spa experience. Gift certificates and bookings are available online or by calling or stopping into this new Downtown business.
