We’re proud to present the new Clase Azul Tequila Día de Muertos Limited Edition Colores, a creation that pays homage to the colors that illuminate this iconic Mexican celebration.
The añejo tequila of this limited edition is inspired by Calaveritas de Azucar, a colorful sweet traditionally made during Día de Muertos.
In honor of this tradition, our Master Distiller chose to finish this tequila in casks of rhum agricole, an artisanal rum from the island of Martinique. The essence of this rum distilled from fresh sugarcane juice remains in the wooden casks and helps give the tequila its unique profile.
Enjoy this añejo tequila neat in a tulip-shaped spirits glass.
Part of the agave used to make this blend was milled using a traditional stone mill called a tahona, a practice that dates back to the origins of tequila. In addition, the fermentation process was extended to accentuate the liquid’s citrus and fruity notes.
This blend was aged for eight months in two different first-use American whiskey casks, each one imparting its own distinct and rich tasting notes.
