Why Clase Azul Dia de Los Muertos 2018 Is Loved
Handmade like all of Clase Azul’s decanters are, this matte black stunner is with a gold-plated metal ornament depicting three Calaveras or decorative skulls and a Pan de Muerto, which symbolizes the food that’s so important to the holiday. The decanter also illustrates the skulls enjoying a feast.
The backstory here is that Mexicans honor the deceased by making displays with their pictures and surrounding their images with Calaveras, their favorite belongings, food, and drinks.
Sabores takes its nod from the latter two: the offerings on Dia de Muertos highlight what their loved ones most enjoyed eating and drinking. In addition, they usually include Pan de Muerto, a sweet seasonal bun; tamales, a dish made with steamed corn dough; atolls, a sweet and corn flour-based drink; seasonal fruit, and of course, tequila.
Clase Azul’s Dia de Muertos decanter holds an añejo expression.
Created by Clase Azul Master Distiller, Viridiana Tinoco. This is the brand’s first single-estate agave tequila which is where the agave is from a single field. A rarity in the tequila world. In this instance, the blue weber agave came from Los Altos de Jalisco called the “Cerro de Viboreo.” It’s located among the remnants of an ancient civilization,” says Tinoco.
