Clase Azul is bringing back its 2020 Limited Edition Clase Azul Gold Tequila. To make things even more intriguing, the iconic agave spirits maker housed the liquid in a bottle that made with 24k gold that took six years to create.
Clase Azul Gold is a joven tequila, a blend that combines Clase Azul Plata with a special reposado tequila matured in French oak casks and an eight-year-old extra añejo aged in ex-bourbon casks and finished in pedro ximenez sherry casks.
On those nose, the medium-bodied tequila offers aromas of agave syrup, green apple, orange peel, fresh fig, raisins, a light note of almond, and walnut. The palate delivers toasted wood, fig, green olive, ginger, and dark chocolate.
“Crafted for those with an adventurous spirit, Clase Azul Tequila Gold offers a flavorful and delicious tequila which embodies one of Mexico’s most celebrated masterpieces, the spectacular sunsets that paint the skies,” said Arturo Lomeli, the company’s CEO and founder. “We are honored to invite Travel + Leisure readers on a journey to taste the sunset with Clase Azul Gold.”
The tequila comes housed in a decanter made of shimmering glass set against a black ceramic base, fused together with a technique that the company says took six years to develop. The combination between glass and ceramic is meant to depict the “light embracing the night’s darkness” as the sun dips below the horizon. If that weren’t enough, its ceramic base is bound with two handcrafted 24k gold ribbons, making it an excellent fit for tequila enthusiasts and collectors.
“We are thrilled to add Clase Azul Gold Tequila, previously released as a Limited Edition in 2020, to our portfolio,” Clase Azul Spirits chief marketing officer, Emma Medina, shared. “This unique blend of exquisite tequila captures the magical essence of Mexican sunsets and will now be available to elevate special moments all year round.”
The tequila is set to be available on August 2 and is priced at $300 per bottle. For more information on the tequila and on where to find it, head over to the official website.
In May, Clase Azul introduced Puebla Limited Edition tequila. The offering celebrates the cultural exchange between Mexico and France, that defined Mexico as a multicultural country.
In April, the luxury spirits announced its expansion from tequilas and mezcal into the hospitality sector.
