Made with 100% organic Tequilana Weber Blue agaves, Clase Azul is a magnum of ultra-premium Tequila from the Jesus Maria region of Jalisco. Not only do local artisans handcraft each bottle one at a time, but the agave Tequila is aged for a minimum of 8 months before bottling in a hand-painted Talavera carafe. The quality is apparent in its vanilla-y and earthy agave notes. Also, enjoy a touch of tropical fruit sweetness and honey.

100% Blue Agave añejo and reposado tequilas are blended to make Agavero. Each is aged separately in white oak casks, then mixed with the essence of the Damiana, a flower indigenous to the mountains of Jalisco. To say this tequila is smooth is an understatement. One sip and your taste buds will experience a robust combination of herbal and floral notes.
