About Clase Azul Guerrero Mezcal
Clase Azul Spirits, founded by Arturo Lomeli in 1997, produces world-class tequila and mezcal. After some teething problems, the company sent the first bottles of its first reposado tequila to the market in 2000. Since then, the company has developed a range of luxurious spirits, which show a deep appreciation of Mexican traditions. Their unique bottles are handcrafted and individually painted by over 100 artisans from an indigenous community in the small town of Santa Maria Canchesdá, and each takes two weeks to complete. The company has strong ties with the community creating its products, and also comprises a non-profit with a mission to keep Mexican artistry alive and thriving by providing resources and support to local artists. The company also encourages the upcycling of its bottles, which offer endless possibilities for turning them into eye-catching everyday objects.
Clase Azul Mezcal Guerrero is their second mezcal expression. It's crafted with papalote agaves from the Guerrero region. The rare agave grows in the mountain ranges, influenced by both the coastal climate and green forests. Inspired by the regions rich heritage, landscapes, art, and gastronomy, its elegant decanter pays tribute to the wisdom, tenderness, and tenacity of Mexican women. The jade color symbolizes eternity, while the flowers represent the Fifth Sun, an ancient god said to be the origin of everything.
