El Dia de Muertos represents much more than a special date for Mexico. It symbolizes Mexicanness itself and its most deep-rooted traditions that date back to 3,000 years ago. Among the various ways of commemorating this time honored holiday, there is a cultural element that unifies all regions of Mexico: our food. This edition of Clase Azul is a tribute to El Dia de Muertos' flavors and gastronomy, which was declared an intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2003. We want to honor our Pan de Muerto, tamales, atoles, fruits, and of course, the tequila present in the offerings and "altares." These altars are an essential part of El Dia de Muertos. The tradition is to put our departed loved ones' favorite food on the altars because it is believed they visit us on that night.
To complete our tribute, we created a special Anejo blend of our finest tequilas, a selection made by our master distiller specially for this edition, that will captivate your senses.
This beautiful handcrafted decanter symbolizes our rich and mystical celebration of El Dia de Muertos. The exquisite black and gold decoration details the most traditional food and the iconic Catrinas--who remind us of our Mexican belief of considering death an exciting journey.
Clase Azul Tequila Día de Muertos Limited Edition Sabores is a tribute to this festivity's gastronomy and the remembrance of the most beautiful moments we’ve lived with our loved ones through the food we share.

El Día de Muertos is the most anticipated Mexican holiday of the year, as it symbolizes one of the most beautiful traditions we have inherited—celebrating our loved ones who have embarked on an exciting journey: life after death.
Among the various ways to commemorate this holiday, a cultural element unifies all regions in Mexico: the food included in offerings.
This is our very first Single Estate Agave Tequila made from agaves exclusively sourced from a small mountain in Los Altos de Jalisco called "El Cerro del Viboreo."
This extraordinary tequila was created by blending an añejo tequila aged for more than 14 months in casks previously used for American whiskey with tequilas aged in first-use American oak casks having light and medium charring.
Its notes allude to the most iconic flavors found on offerings during Día de Muertos. Its aroma has notes of candied orange peel, agave syrup, and almond. Its flavor is complex with notes of citrus, clove, roasted coffee, and orange blossom, with a prolonged orange peel aftertaste.
The golden artwork on the decanter depicts Catrinas (elegantly dressed skeletons) enjoying a feast of the most iconic Día de Muertos dishes. The front is adorned with a handcrafted, gold-plated metal ornament made by Mexican artisans.
