Clase Azul Mezcal
Mezcal Clase Azul is created using 100% Cenzino Agave, which grows wild in the state of Durango. The region -- known for extreme climate, mineral-rich soil and local natural springs -- contributes to the powerful and complex profile that differentiates our mezcal from those produced in the rest of Mexico.
The underground baking process produces sweet notes of peanut, brown sugar, honey, ash, wood and chocolate. The fermentation process using stone piles and red oak, contribute to notes of ripened fruit.
At Clase Azul Spirits, they are inspired by our mission to initiate and reinforce a deeper appreciation for the beauty of Mexico and its traditions.
From the superior tequila, to the unique & beautifully handcrafted bottles, Clase Azul is 100% authentic in every way. In the small Mexican town of Santa Maria Canchesda, over 100 artisans dedicate their time to creating each bottle one at a time.
Clase Azul tequila is created using only 100% organic Tequilana Weber Blue agaves – the only kind of agave out of 200 varieties that produces tequila. Once harvested, the agaves are cooked in old-fashioned brick ovens for 72 hours.
Once cooked, the pinas are crushed to extract the juices, which are then mixed with a special proprietary yeast. The fermentation process takes place, and finally, the alcohol is distilled twice with careful attention to ensure the highest quality spirit.
Our ultra-premium line of tequila is produced in one of the highest points in Los Altos, or the highlands – in the town of Jesus Maria in the region of Jalisco – which results in a very unique flavor profile.
Mezcal Joven or “young” is bottled within two months of distillation without barrel aging and will appear clear, like a Vodka or Gin. Longer barrel aging, with the principal aim to soften and round a spirit’s flavor profile, is often most prized by connoisseurs. However, many die-hard Mezcal enthusiasts insist that oak takes away from the purity of the agave flavors—ranging from earthy and smoky to sweet and floral, often in the same Mezcal—and that Mezcal Joven is the best expression.
