With each shipment, Robb Vices sends out a glossy booklet that outlines the products and curation story of each box.
The booklet is very well designed, and it includes beautiful photographs and lots of information about the included products.
This month’s box features Clase Azul tequila!
The booklet talks a bit about the process of making tequila, and it shows how Clase Azul artisans handcraft and paint their signature ceramic bottles.
Clase Azul Plata Tequila (375 ml)- $42.99
Clase Azul’s Plata Tequila is produced from 100% organic blue weber agave.
The agave is slow cooked for 72 hours in brick ovens like these:
It’s then distilled. Plata is not aged, and it’s bottled in a clear bottle to showcase its clarity.
Clase Azul Ceramic Shot Glasses (2 glasses)- $20
It’s such a nice touch that Robb Vices included a set of ceramic shot glasses to accompany the tequila.
I couldn’t find the exact glasses online, so I’ve linked to a similar design.
Clase Azul Anejo Tequila (200 ml)- approximately $128
Close Azul’s Anejo Tequila is aged for 25 months in white oak barrels. It has a deep amber color and a complex aroma and flavor. It’s also, without a doubt, the most beautiful bottle of liquor I have ever owned.
It’s likely also the most expensive. There are a couple of bars in DC that specialize in tequila, and I found one that sells shots of this tequila for $80.
What a luxury! I would never spend $80 on a shot of tequila in a bar, but I’m SO EXCITED that I get to try it at home.
Plus, I don’t think it’s possible to full appreciate this tequila without the bottle. I really hope that when someone orders a shot of it in a bar or restaurant they pour it tableside.
I’m now officially ruined for life. This tequila is incredible.
I’m not even going to try describing how good it is. Suffice it to say that I don’t know if I can ever buy Jose Cuervo again.
Robb Vices included this lollipop as a “just for fun” extra. I don’t know that I’m brave enough to eat it, but it made me smile.
Verdict: This Robb Vices box is amazing. The packaging is gorgeous, the box was packed with extreme care, and I’m thrilled with the contents. Robb Vices promises to deliver a “taste of the good life,” and they most certainly delivered on that promise with this box. Even more impressive is that this box contained $193 worth of goods- that’s fantastic considering the subscription cost. I’ve received a lot of boxes since I began reviewing for MSA a little over a year ago, and this box is definitely one of my all-time favorites!
