Clase Azul Mezcal Guerrero reveals one of Mexico's best-kept secrets: the wondrous state of Guerrero, a little-explored region that shows us yet another facet of Mexican culture. This member of the Clase Azul family was inspired by the singularity of Guerrero’s landscapes, gastronomy, art, and heritage –– but also by the strength and leadership of the women from this region. Clase Azul Mezcal Guerrero is a truly unique piece. Beyond its beautiful decanter, its majestic flavor comes from a very rare variety of agave: the papalote agave. This plant grows wild in the mountain ranges in the state of Guerrero, where both the coastal climate and the freshness of green forests come through in its flavor profile. TASTING NOTES Color: Crystal clear with light straw-colored highlights. Body: Full bodied. Aroma: Grapefruit skin, fresh wood, rosemary, peanut oil, hints of butter and daisy flowers. Taste: Fresh wood, seaweed, lemon juice, pepper and light notes of tobacco. PAIRING Semi-fatty fish and shellfish (shrimp, snapper, mahi mahi, or scallops) cooked with butter and lemon or prepared inceviches. Tapas with avocado and sour dressings (ranch and honey mustard). White chocolate with tamarind jam or salted peanuts. DECANTER The decanter is an artisanal piece that pays tribute to the ancestral wisdom, tender nature, and warrior spirit of the Mexican woman –– qualities that have made her the heart of Guerrero's culture. The green color represents jade, a precious stone of extreme value to our ancestral cultures as well as a symbol of eternity. The four-petaled flowers covering the decanter represent the Fifth Sun –– a pre-Hispanic god known as the origin of everything. The colorful cap features the figure of a hummingbird, the fabled messenger of the Gods, reaffirming its mystical and celestial connection to this Mexican region.
