Discover Clase Azul Gold:
Clase Azul Gold symbolizes the magnificent sunsets produced by the daily descent of the Mayan Sun God into his lover’s earthly arms, and was inspired by a love tale between heaven and earth. The exquisite confluence of light and dark is captured in this beautiful decanter. A blend of Tequila Clase Azul Plata and an Extra Anejo matured for eight years in bourbon barrels before being completed in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.
Clase Azul Gold is an exceptional, limited-edition collection of one-of-a-kind art and tequila, perfect for collectors. Clase Azul has been working on combining glass and ceramic for years, and this bottle is the result of their efforts.
“The Gold Collection” Clase Azul Gold features a beautiful hand-crafted and hand-painted foundation, a genuine representation of Mexico’s culturally rich craftsmanship, with only 6000 pieces created!
The bottle’s many hues represent the tequila inside: an unique Clase Azul Plata blend with clear and crisp notes, as well as a very exceptional expression of Clase Azul Ultra Anejo matured for 8 years! Because of the blended maturing method, which uses recycled bourbon barrels and reclaimed Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, this version of Ultra Anejo has deep, black, and complex aromas. The combination of tequilas and age results in a remarkably smooth flavor that will satisfy even the most discriminating palette.
Producer Notes: Clase Azul Tequila
Clase Azul Tequila is a premium tequila producer based in the town of Santa Maria Canchesdá in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. The company was founded in 1997 by Arturo Lomeli and is known for its high-quality tequilas that are made using traditional methods and aged in oak barrels.
Clase Azul Tequila produces a range of tequilas, including Blanco, Reposado, Añejo, and Ultra. Each of these tequilas is made using 100% blue Weber agave, which is grown in the highlands of Jalisco. The agave is harvested by hand and cooked in traditional brick ovens before being crushed to extract the juice. The juice is then fermented using natural yeast before being distilled twice in copper stills.
Once the tequila has been distilled, it is aged in oak barrels for varying lengths of time depending on the type of tequila being produced. The Blanco is unaged, while the Reposado is aged for 8 months, the Añejo for 25 months, and the Ultra for 5 years.
In addition to its tequilas, Clase Azul Tequila also produces a range of other spirits, including Mezcal, Sotol, and Raicilla. Mezcal is a type of agave-based spirit that is similar to tequila but is made using a different type of agave and is typically smokier in flavor. Sotol is a spirit made from the Desert Spoon plant, which is native to northern Mexico. Raicilla is a type of agave-based spirit that is similar to Mezcal but is made using a different type of agave and is typically less smoky in flavor.
Clase Azul Tequila is known for its distinctive handcrafted bottles, which are made by Mexican artisans using traditional techniques. The bottles are decorated with intricate designs and are often used as decorative pieces after the tequila has been consumed.
Overall, Clase Azul Tequila is a premium spirits producer that is known for its high-quality tequilas and other agave-based spirits. The company’s commitment to traditional methods and its focus on quality have helped it to become one of the most respected tequila producers in Mexico and around the world.

Bourbon is most often associated with Bourbon County, Kentucky, although technically it can be produced anywhere in the United States. Kentucky is traditionally where American bourbon has been produced since the late 18th century. To be considered a bourbon whiskey, the drink must contain at least 51% corn and must be aged in new carbonized white oak barrels. Bourbon whiskey is available in bottles of eighty ABV (40% ABV) or more and cannot contain any color or aroma additives. A versatile alcohol that can be drunk pure, with water or ice, also goes well with cocktails like an Old Fashioned.
First produced in the 16th century, when Spanish conquerors ran out of cognac during their expedition to the New World, tequila is made by distilling the juice from the heart of a blue agave native to Jalisco, Mexico. Tequila comes in a variety of colors, from the transparent and unrestrained, known as Blanco, to the darkest aged in Reposado, Anejo and Extra Anejo vats. Popular as a main ingredient in refreshing margaritas, it is also commonly consumed pure or with the addition of lemon and salt.
