The expression is a tribute to both the festivity and gastronomy that are part of the holiday. Día de Muertos Limited Edition Sabores is the first in a series of 5 installments that are going to come in the next years. This means that it’s a very special release ― it’s Clase Azul’s first single estate tequila made from agaves from a small mountain in the Jalisco highlands called “El Cerro del Viboreo”. Crafted by Master Distiller Viridiana Tinoco, it’s a blend of añejo tequila that has spent at least 14 months in American whiskey casks with tequila that was aged in first-use, light & medium charred American oak casks. “Sabores” translates to “flavors” and the luxurious matte black decanter is adorned with golden Calaveras that are enjoying a feast.

About Clase Azul
Clase Azul is produced at the Productos Finos de Agave at Nom 1416, situated in the Jesus Maria region of Arandas in Los Altos Highlands region of Mexico. Clase Azul is a premium 100% authentic tequila crafted in a small town named Santa Maria Canchesdá. Over one hundred Mexican artisans go to work meticulously handcrafting each bottle.
Clase Azul tequilas are made from 100% from organic Tequilana Weber Blue Agaves. Chosen from approximately 200 breeds of agave, this particular species is the only one that produces tequila. Once the agave is harvested, Clase Azul cooks them in old-fashioned brick ovens, a process which takes 72 hours. The cooked piñas are then crushed, after which a special brand of yeast is added. This liquid is allowed to ferment before the resultant spirit is meticulously twice-distilled with careful attention ensuring the highest quality spirit.
Although tequila has developed a bad reputation, there’s more to the spirit than just shots on a Saturday night.
This traditional Mexican drink origins in the state of Jalisco when according to a local legend, lightning struck an agave cactus before the Nahua tribe drank its warm nectar. Behold, tequila.
Legally, tequila has to be made of 51% of Blue agave around the Jalisco region in Mexico. There are different types of tequila according to age – from the youngest representatives, blanco, reposado, and añejo, to the oldest extra añejo.
