Clase Azul San Luis Potosi Mezcal 750ml
$750.00
SAN LUIS POTOSÍ, LOCATED IN MEXICO’S CENTRAL HIGHLANDS, POSSESSES AN UNMATCHED CULTURAL RICHNESS, THE RESULT OF CENTURIES OF BEING AT THE HISTORICAL FOREFRONT AND A RICH INDIGENOUS PRESENCE. THE DESERT OF THIS REGION, ALTHOUGH INHOSPITABLE AT FIRST GLANCE, HAS ITS OWN TYPE OF RICHES: ABUNDANT CACTI, WILDFLOWERS AND SHRUBS; AS WELL AS ALL TYPES OF WILDLIFE SUCH AS HARES, COYOTES AND BIRDS THAT GIVE LIFE TO APPARENT ARIDITY. TO THIS DAY, ONE OF THESE LANDSCAPES, THE EXTENSIVE AND FORMIDABLE SEMI-DESERT MOUNTAINS, HIDES ONE OF MEXICO’S BEST-KEPT SECRETS: GREEN AGAVE. MEZCAL This mezcal’s unique profile stems from a meticulous process that involves steam cooking, milling and extraction using traditional methods and distillation in traditional copper stills. TASTING NOTES Colour: crystal-clear with silver highlights Body: full body Aroma: cooked agave, caramel, green chile, sweet fruit and freshly cut grass with subtle aromas of wildflowers Palate: herbal front with hints of caramel, lime zest and clove, with a mineral and spiced aftertaste  DECANTER The decanter made for this edition is inspired by the history of the Huachichil people, a nomadic tribe that roamed across the desert of San Luis Potosí in Central Mexico. The red colour of the ceramic alludes to the name of these people, which means “red-painted heads.” The carvings on the base of the decanter are symbols of its stories: the vast desert and mountains that make up its territory, green agave leaves typical of the region and the red finch which is of great significance to the Huachichil people. CAP Made by hand by Mexican artisans using a technique that uses coloured yarn to create intricate designs, the decanter’s cap represents a beautiful oneiric landscape of desert mountains and valleys filled with bright red finches in flight. Each cap takes our artisan more than three hours of work to complete. SIMPLE PAIRINGS Fruit: red plum, lychee or green olive Cheese: aged goat cheese, fresh goat cheese or requesón (whey cheese) Chocolate: white chocolate or ruby chocolate

Mezcal Clase Azul is created using 100% Cenizo Agave, which grows wild in the state of Durango. The region - known for extreme climate, mineral-rich soil and local natural springs - contributes to the powerful and complex profile that differentiates this mezcal from those produced in the rest of Mexico.  Clase Azul Mezcal is truly unique from beginning to end! The black matte decanter, inspired by clay pottery, is hand-carved by Mexican artisans and the colourful beaded cap is hand-crafted by artisans from Huichol culture. Tasting Notes: The underground baking process 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
