One of the most significant projects in the tequila industry over the past 250 years.

 

The essence of Clase Azul Spirits is inspired by a mission to reveal and rediscover a deeper appreciation for the beauty of Mexican traditions. In order to comprehend the importance of these traditions you must first understand the culture and history of México by learning the stories, legends and tales that remain relevant in our society.

In honor of our 15th anniversary in 2012, we decided to tell the story of México Through Time by incorporating 4 Mexican Designation of Origin items: Amber, Olinala, Talavera and Tequila. The challenge was to use all of these materials and cre- ate one handmade product. In early 2011, we brought together México’s most creative designers, writers, and artists to initiate the project. After nearly two years, the result is a series of extraordinary pieces which reflect the essence and culture of México.

 

The collections includes 15 bottles with their respective cases.

 

PRICE COLLECTION: $450,000 US dollars.

All money goes to the non profit foundation, Fundación con Causa Azul A.C.

This one-of-a-kind blend of 2 ultra-aged, reserve tequilas is presented to reflect the spirit of the México a través del Tiempo project.

The first tequila was produced in the Tequilas del Señor distillery and aged for fifteen years in a Spanish barrel previously used to mature sherry. This is an historically significant barrel because it was sealed on May 27th, 1997, when the European Union signed the agreement officially recognizing the “Denomination of Origin, Tequila”.

The second tequila was produced in the Productos Finos de Agave distillery and aged for eleven years. The fist six years it was aged in a Portuguese barrel used to mature Port, and the following five years in American White oak barrels.

The result of this blend reflects the essence of Clase Azul tequila’s evolution through time.
