CLASE AZUL TEQUILA ULTRA
Quite literally in a league of its own, Clase Azul Ultra is the world’s most luxurious tequila. The exclusive Clase Azul offering is only produced in numbered batches of 100 bottles, which are quickly purchased by collectors. Each bottle contains tequila that is aged for five years in previously used sherry wood casks from Spain which gives Clase Azul Ultra its unique refined character. The decanter used for Ultra is a striking work of art, hand painted with platinum and features a silver agave medallion and label applied using 24-karat gold.

PAIRING ULTRA AZUL
Braised or smoked meats (brisket, beef rib, or pork belly) with a robust sauce (velouté, meat gravy, or sweet mole).
Semi-mature cheeses (brie and camembert) and cured meats (salami, pamplona sausage, or stuffed loin), accompanied with bread and a compote of figs or red berries.
Bitter or semi-bitter chocolates with citrus jam.
Delicately dressed in three precious metals (platinum, silver, and 24-karat gold), Clase Azul Ultra enlists only the most highly skilled artisans to hand paint these incredible vessels practically blind since the metallic paint that is applied can only be seen after the decanter has been fired.
Our master artisans paint the platinum-feather design from memory and completely freehand. The mastering of this technique can take years to perfect.
