Clase Azul is renowned for its premium tequilas and mezcals that exemplify the unique and bold flavor of artisanally made spirits. The new Mezcal Guerrero is made from 100 percent Agave Papalote, also known as Agave cupreata, which is specific to the Guerrero region of Mexico.
In the mountainous region of Guerrero, the agave plant grows wild and completely natural by seed propagation. Papalote Agave can take up to 15 years to fully mature and only the best agaves are cooked over the course of several days in a pit oven using volcanic rock and firewood from the Guamuchil tree, according to a statement from Clase Azul Spirits.
