The distinctive blue and white tequila bottle, and the Clase Azul price tag, have made this Tequila Clase Azul Mexican-founded and based company one of the frontrunners in the high-end tequila market.
While Clase Azul liquor comes in a variety of hand-crafted bottles, the blue and white tequila bottle that is the company’s “most recognized icon” holds their Reposado. A golden liquor with a medium body, the company recommends it be paired with pork, aged cheese, or a bittersweet chocolate mousse.
Reviews of the Reposado describe its feel as “incredibly silky.” Along with the flavors and scents of agave and oak, some note a nose of “banana cream pie!” As a result, many reviews of Clase Azul liquor note its sweetness, which is not to everyone’s taste. These are tequilas crafted to be sipped and savored, not shot with a slice of lemon.
Forbes Magazine calls Clase Azul a “cult status” tequila, a luxury tequila due to its high cost and limited release. But Clase Azul price their liquor based on equitable and respectful treatment of the artisans who contribute to its creation. Another of their iconic bottles holds their most affordable tequila, Clase Azul Plata.
This clear liquor is unaged and comes in a crystal clear bottle to showcase its lack of color. Loved for its smooth feel and sweet taste, Clase Azul’s Plata is “a unique and out of the ordinary tequila” according to one reviewer. As with the Clase Azul reposado, this is tequila to sip and enjoy with friends.
