One&Only Palmilla partners with Clase Azul Spirits for unique tequila
One&Only Palmilla has partnered with Clase Azul Spirits to create a special edition, custom blend of Joven tequila exclusive to the resort.
Inspired by the pristine views of the Sea of Cortez and the rich beauty of One&Only Palmilla, the bespoke blend combines the best of Clase Azul Plata and Clase Azul Añejo tequilas, with added touches from the king of the family - Clase Azul Ultra.
Just 100 bottles have been produced of the premium tequila, which is only available at the resort’s Agua Bar.
Guests will have the opportunity to sample the rare spirit during special tequila tastings hosted at the resort throughout the year.
The distinctive blend, created exclusively for One&Only Palmilla, is made from Clase Azul Plata and Clase Azul Añejo tequilas, both of which are aged for 25 months in reclaimed bourbon barrels, along with touches of the king of the family, Clase Azul Ultra, boasting a five-year aging process in reclaimed sherry casks.
The result is a luxurious tequila with notes of citric, oak, caramel and cherry.
Each tequila is made from organic agave plants that are hand selected and left unharvested until they reach prime maturation after nearly nine years.
The heart of the agave plant, also known as the piñas, is then slow cooked in a traditional brick oven in a process that takes up to 72 hours and brings out the natural moisture and sugars of the plant, which are evaporated so that the most desirable juices are ready for the next step.
The cooked piñas are then crushed for their juices, to which a special brand of yeast is added, and only the liquid is left to ferment.
The alcohol is then distilled twice with careful attention, ensuring the highest quality spirit.
Located on one of the few swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, One&Only Palmilla boasts sweeping views of the Sea of Cortez and some of the most luxurious accommodations in Mexico.
The idyllic resort offers a sanctuary-like spa with bespoke wellness experiences and treatments inspired by ancient traditions coupled with modern techniques, a choice of world-class culinary offerings and warm, gracious Mexican hospitality.
