Limited Edition Día de los Muertos Tequila Bottle
Luxury tequila brand Clase Azul has released a blend of tequilas in a limited-edition beautiful bottle that pays homage to the Mexican celebration of Día de los Muertos. The bottle is inspired by bones and is accented by marigolds and skulls. It's a limited release of only 2,000 bottles worldwide and is now available for $400 a bottle.
With the arrival of October, people’s minds have shifted away from the sun and sand and into dreams of crisp, cool air, bright orange and yellow leaves, and fall celebrations like Halloween and Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican celebration of life and death.
This year, to celebrate Dia de los Muertos, Clase Azul Spirits — the first luxury tequila brand from Mexico — is releasing a limited-edition version of its iconic bottle that truly captures the spirit of the holiday. With only 2,000 bottles available for purchase globally, Clase Azul Dia de los Muertos is the perfect blend of Clase Azul Plata, Clase Azul Reposado (aged in oak barrels for eight months), and Clase Azul Ultra (aged in sherry barrels for five years). According to Clase Azul, this combination creates a “deliciously complex blend with fragrant aromas, a golden color, and a silky, rich, and full body.”
Equally as creative as the taste, the handcrafted bottle is designed to reflect the holiday’s traditions and symbolism. The bottle is inspired by bones, “meant to commemorate communication with the spiritual world,” and dressed with marigold flowers and skulls, which help guide the souls of the dead back to us for a visit.
“There is always a lot that goes into designing a special edition, from the creative process to the production,” Clase Azul cofounder and president Juan Sanchez, told Travel + Leisure. “This edition is especially important as it represents what we believe in as a company, which is to share the culturally exquisite aspects of Mexico with the world.”
Besides the limited-edition bottle, Clase Azul has also shared some other great ways to celebrate Day of the Dead, including mouthwatering recipes for peach, Serrano ham, and Camembert, as well as seared lamb chops that pair perfectly with the spirit.
Clase Azul Dia de los Muertos is now available globally for $400 a bottle.
