(CNN) - Many people across the country are raising a glass this holiday, but they are probably not drinking tequila that costs $30,000 a bottle.

Clase Azul is a part of the surge in luxury tequilas hitting the market.

The tequila comes in hand-sculpted, hand-painted ceramic decanters, and some even have amber and 24-karat gold studding.

The founder of the company says this tequila is made for savoring, not mixing in a cocktail or downing as a shot.

U.S. sales of high-end and "super premium" tequila have surged by 67 percent over the past decade.
