One of the first true luxury Mezcals.

Clase Azul was founded in 1997 by Arturo Lomeli. Like many new spirits makers, Arturo began with entry-level Tequila offering — but he had his sights set much higher. After completing his master degree, he used the profits from the business to focus on developing a line of luxury Tequilas based upon the finest craftsmanship and superior decanters. Mission accomplished. His top-of-the-line Tequilas are now some of the most exclusive spirits available and he has extended his line into premium Mezcals as well. Vivo El Arturo!

Mezcal Clase Azul is the first Mezcal in the line up, and — true to his vision — Arturo has focused on quality and traditional craftsmanship. This Mezcal is produced from 100% Cenizo Agave native to the state of Durango, Mexico. It’s a pains-taking process since Cenizo Agaves take twelve to fifteen years to reach maturity. Once harvested, the agave hearts are slow-roasted for three days in volcanic stone before natural fermentation under red oak. This is a joven Mezcal, double-distilled in alembic copper stills, brought to proof with natural spring mineral-water, and bottled in their famous black-ceramic decanters with hand-beaded tops.

Smartass Corner:
There are no fewer than 50 agave varieties used to make Mezcal. Cenizo Agaves (Agave Durangensis) are native to the high-altitude, cool and dry mountains of Durango, where they are plentiful.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Clase Azul Mezcal and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

While Mezcal is produced all across Mexico, most of the Mezcal we see is produced in the state of Oaxaca. Interestingly, over 70% of Mezcal is made from the Espadín agave—even though more than 20 types of agave are used to make Mezcal.
All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
Espadín. That word means “sword” in Spanish because the leaves look like a mass of swords projecting out of the plant. Espadín Mezcals are most common because it has been the easiest agave to cultivate.
