Ultra Extra Añejo Tequila
Clase Azul Ultra is probably the world’s most luxurious Tequila. From the agave field to the bottling, this Extra Añejo Tequila is more than 14 years in the making.
The jaw-droppingly beautiful decanter is painted by the hands of the most highly skilled artisans in three precious metals: platinum, silver and 24-carat gold. The painters are working almost blind, because the paints don’t show on the dark background until after the decanter has been fired, making each one a unique collector’s treasure.
The liquid inside begins with hand-selected Blue Weber agave that have matured for at least nine years. These are cooked with steam in stone ovens for 72 hours, cooled and double fermented with a secret yeast known only to Clase Azul. It’s then distilled in copper pot stills, triple filtered and aged for five years, first in American whiskey casks and then in Spanish Sherry barrels. The Extra Añejo Tequila that emerges from that heavily charred oak is deep amber in colour with an astonishing smoothness. Aromatic wood, agave syrup, oxidised Sherry, maple syrup, hazelnut, rich caramel, vanilla, dried apricot, crème caramel, cinnamon bun, cherry, ginger and sweet vanilla all seem to mingle together in this sensational spirit, the experience is almost Cognac-esque. A Tequila like no other, this should be sipped neat or served alongside braised meat, rich mole, earthy tacos, mature cheese or the finest dark chocolate.
Clase Azul is famed for its superior agave-based spirits and the sensational works of art they bottle them in. Each luxurious ceramic decanter is handmade by a community of Mexican artisans, from the farmers of the organic agave to the enormous team of painters in the town of Santa María Canchesdá. The attention to detail is unrivalled, making their iconic bottles of Tequila and Mezcal some of the most admired and collectable the world has ever seen.
