Clase Azul Spirits, the World’s first luxury brand from Mexico -and creators of ultra-premium Clase Azul Tequila and Clase Azul Mezcal – will unveil the most luxurious GOLD tequila in history on August 1, 2020. Clase Azul GOLD, with only 6000 bottles available for purchase, is an exquisite blend of tequila Clase Azul Plata and an eight-year-old extra anejo that was first aged in bourbon barrels and then finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.
The precious combination of liquids, with a light amber color and a medium body, offers hazelnut, dried chamomile flowers, candied orange peel, wood, walnut, vanilla and raisin aromas on the nose and flavors of oak, ginger, green olives, chocolate, salted caramel, fig and a subtle hint of smoke. The stunning one-of-a-kind decanter is a delicate combination of glass with high heat ceramic featuring a 24k gold trimming and our iconic agave medallion, also dipped in 24k gold, affixed by our world-class artisans.
“The Mayans believed man’s nightly slumber was a welcome death that allowed your spirit to be reborn at dawn, a celestial cycle of transformation,” commented Clase Azul Founder & CEO Arturo Lomeli. “This special edition embodies one of nature’s most celebrated masterpieces, the spectacular sunsets that paint our skies. The bottle is inspired by the precise moment the sunset kisses the tops of the agaves every night, ushering in the night with the promise of a new day.”
“This is not your father’s GOLD tequila – which many consider a product made with additives,” commented Clase Azul Spirits President Juan Sanchez. “Our GOLD, made from 100% Blue Weber Agave, refers to the rich color of the liquid achieved through the blend of our expertly aged Extra Añejo with our Plata as well as the enchanting decanter which captures the marriage of light and dark,” Sanchez explained. “Our limited editions have become highly coveted collectable items which require a trip to our boutique in Los Cabos, Mexico. We are now excited to offer our clients this superb special edition here in the United States.”
Clase Azul GOLD, created for those with an adventurous spirit, can be sipped neat, or enjoyed in a cocktail while admiring backyard sunsets or chasing them abroad. Clase Azul Gold is available in 750ml, is 80 proof/40% alcohol by volume and is available for $300 USD.
