Characteristics Tequila Clase Azul Reposado
According to the strictest unwritten rules of how things should be done, gifts must be well wrapped, tastefully and elegantly. This detail, which usually makes everyone happy, sends a message about how one person feels about another. And if a gift is poorly wrapped, this might suggest carelessness and disinterest.
With this unofficial rule in mind, the producer of Clase Azul tequila is in a class of its own with its decanters, unique pieces of art made using the ancient techniques of the Mazahua people, where this product is bottled. These completely exclusive containers are made of ceramics and by hand. No two are the same.
And if the packaging is surprising, the contents are even more fascinating. We’re talking about Tequila Clase Azul Reposado, a reposado tequila that has been aged for 6 months in American whiskey barrels. Tequila Clase Azul Reposado is made from blue agave grown in one of the highest points of Jalisco, between 6 and 8 years old. This completely organic agave is harvested and then placed in old masonry ovens, where it will be baked for 72 hours to enhance its most characteristic aromas and flavours. After this, it is time to grind the core of the plant to extract the juice and begin fermentation (using yeast patented by the company). This Tequila Clase Azul Reposado is distilled twice, clearly making the most of the heart of the distillation, and discarding both the heads and tails. This simple detail will guarantee the quality of this beverage.
With care like this, and with the decanter, Tequila Clase Azul Reposado becomes a tequila to enjoy as well as a way to maintain and safeguard the tradition of a people.
