Clase Azul Mezcal Durango
The Clase Azul Mezcal Durango is created using 100% Cenzino Agave, which grows wild in the state of Durango. The region, known for its extreme climate, mineral-rich soils and local natural springs, contributes to the powerful and complex profile that differentiates the Clase Azul Mezcal from those produced in the rest of Mexico. The Cenizo Agave from Durango takes between 12 and 15 years for the plant to mature before it blooms and can be harvested to produce mezcal. The slow, underground baking process utilising volcanic rock, produces sweet notes of peanut, brown sugar, honey, ash, wood and chocolate. The fermentation process using stone piles and red oak, contribute to notes of ripened fruit. The design of the bottle, hand-carved by Mexican artisans, is inspired by black clay pottery, one of the most representative styles of Mexican folk art, whose detailed process enriches the beauty and quality of each piece. Its unique and colourful top is hand-crafted by artisans belonging to the Wixarika or Huichol culture using beeswax, resin, a needle, and individually placed beads, that in a special way represents their roots and their traditions combining images that together reference the origins of mezcal. Finally, each piece bears with pride a medallion with an imprinted agave on its forefront, the signature trademark of the Clase Azul family.
