The spectacular bottle in the July 2017 experience is a celebration of the 20th anniversary of one of the world's most beautiful spirit brands.
In my mind, there is no better product to represent the beauty of what can be accomplished by the human hand and heart. The founder of Clase Azul is a true friend and a world class visionary who has built a team of artisans who cultivate a spirit for your glass that warms your own human spirit. I’ve witnessed the joy that went into creating this special bottle. We wish you tremendous joy as you sip it.
Clase Azul Spirits is 20 years old this month, and the bottle in your box will never, ever be made again. It’s a collector’s item - a rare and wonderful thing among all the rare and wonderful things this company creates.
It first spent four months in bourbon casks, and then another four months in sherry casks from the south of Spain. Those sherry casks were a collection, too. One-third were Amontillado sherry casks, one-third were Oloroso sherry and the last third was from Pedro Ximènez sherry. We made a blend of all of this and filled only 24 barrels.
What you have before you is a bottle that the Clase Azul partners made specifically for Robb Vices members. While bar owners and collectors scramble to obtain this in the outside world, you’ve only got to sit back and sip.
We wanted a bright splash of color to give you as a snack (or a cocktail garnish, if you prefer) for this box that’s focused around such exceptional tequila, and their Mexican Crisps were just the ticket. They start with fresh pineapple, sourced from Hawaii. Then, they sprinkle on a spicy kick.
