Character, distinction, and beauty in one piece. Clase Azul Mezcal Durango is an invitation to discover an unusual flavor from Northwestern Mexico in the mountains of Durango.
Clase Azul Mezcal Durango is made from cenizo agave, an agave variety that grows wild in the state of Durango in Northern Mexico. The combination of mineral-rich soil and water from natural springs gives it a distinctive and smoky character with complex flavor notes. The distillation process faithfully follows artisanal methods to create a unique profile and pays tribute to mezcal tradition.
The raw beauty of black clay inspires its dark and textured decanter. The design on this special piece is carved by hand by artisans from a small community of the Mazahua people. Wixárika artisans use beeswax, resin, and beads to create the colorful cap found atop this decanter
Agave cores are slowly roasted for three days in hand-dug pits with firewood and volcanic rocks; a process that gives the liquid its smoky notes.
Clase Azul México proudly supports Mexican artisans through Fundación Causa Azul, which aims to preserve Mexico’s cultural and artisanal legacy. Clase Azul México is certified by © Positive Luxury reiterating the commitment to their land and their continuous efforts to positively transform the environment.
