Clase Azul México adds third mezcal to its range

Clase Azul México has announced a third mezcal in its range, Clase Azul Mezcal San Luis Potosí. 
The latest addition joins Durango and Guerrero in the brand’s portfolio of mezcals that each honour the Mexican states for which they are named. Made in the small community of Estación Ipiña, Clase Azul Mezcal San Luis Potosí is derived from green agave native to the region. 
The mezcal is made with traditional methods, including stone oven cooking, milling in a Chilean mill, and double distillation in copper stills. Tasting notes supplied by the brand highlight flavours such as caramel, green chile, florals, lime zest, and clove.
Clase Azul México master distiller Viridiana Tinoco shared: “We’re delighted to introduce a spirit that’s so deeply rooted in the history and landscape of its place of origin. The generational wisdom safeguarded by the mezcal-producing community of Estación Ipiña, San Luis Potosí has given rise to a distinctive mezcal. Its unique aromatic and tasting notes reflect its traditional craftsmanship and capture the essence of the green agave used in its production.”
The distinctive decanter in which the mezcal is presented pays homage to the Huachichil, nomads of San Luis Potosí’s deserts. The colour is chosen after the tribe’s name which translates from Nahuatl, an Aztec language, to ‘heads painted red’. The carvings at the base of the decanter represent the flora and fauna of the desert landscapes. 
The decanter cap, handmade by Mexican artists, shows the red finch that was a sacred guardian to the Huachichil.
Clase Azul Mezcal San Luis Potosí is available from retailers including Selfridges, Hedonism, and Berry Bros.
