Clase Azul Spirits has announced the return of its 2020 Limited Edition, Clase Azul Gold Tequila, for a 2021 vintage.
Additionally, this premium spirit is now part of the brand’s permanent portfolio. It will be available year-round.
Clase Azul Gold Tequila is a joven tequila that blends Clase Azul Plata and Clase Azul Reposado matured in French oak casks with an eight-year-old extra añejo aged in ex-bourbon casks and finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.
Aromas and flavors range from agave syrup, green apple, orange peel and toasted wood, the company says, to fig, green olive, ginger, cocoa and dark chocolate.
Emphasizing premiumization, Clase Azul Gold’s decanter is shimmering glass set against a black ceramic base. The combination between glass and ceramic depicts the light embracing the night’s darkness, the company says. Its ceramic base is bound with two handcrafted 24k gold ribbons, “a final surrender to nightfall.”
“We are thrilled to add Clase Azul Gold Tequila, previously released as a Limited Edition in 2020, to our portfolio,” says Clase Azul Spirits CMO, Emma Medina. “This unique blend of exquisite tequila captures the magical essence of Mexican sunsets and will now be available to elevate special moments all year round.”
Clase Azul Gold Tequila is 40% ABV. The suggested retail price is $300 per 750-ml. bottle.
