Clase Azul Guerrero Mezcal

by Daniel Galyean

Clase Azul Mezcal Guerrero is made from 100% Agave Papalote, also known as Agave cupreata, and specific to the Guerrero region. The plant grows wild in the mountain range of Guerrero, which is on the coast and has a tropical climate.

The agaves cook for three-fo-four days in a pit oven using volcanic rock and firewood from the Guamuchil tree before being distilled using firewood and a copper alembic still.

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 with extreme value to our ancestral cultures and a symbol of eternity. The 4-petaled flowers covering the decanter represent the Fifth Sun–a pre-Hispanic god known as the beginning 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.
