Clase Azul Master Artisan 750ml
$42999.99 price per bottle
Annual limited-edition series debuts with master artisan Angel Santos.
The Master Artisans collection will feature a collaboration with a Mexican artisan who has impacted Mexico’s cultural and artisanal scene. The first edition is a partnership with Ángel Santos, whose work has been displayed at some of the world’s most prestigious art exhibitions and festivals. But collectors will have to move fast; only 300 decanters are available for purchase.
In fact, Clase Azul Master Artisans by Ángel Santos amounts to a tribute to the essential elements of ceramics: earth, water, air, and fire. The decanter is inspired by the beauty of long-plumed pheasants, which symbolize light, prosperity, the sun, and wealth in various cultures. The use of blue represents the air, sky, and water. The five and six-petaled flowers adorning the vessel are traditionally used in artisanal clay techniques in Tonalá. A central orange flower with yellow brushstrokes and the flower in the upper part of the decanter symbolize the sun and fire.
This gorgeous decanter houses something similarly unique; an eight-year-old extra añejo tequila, which began its journey in casks previously used for American whiskey, where it was aged for 64 months. For the following 41 months of aging, the tequila was distributed into three different types of sherry casks (amontillado, oloroso, and Pedro Ximénez). The result is a blend with incomparable complexity – and Clase Azul’s most aged tequila to date.
