Brand:Excellia

History

Excellia™ is the fruit of the meeting of two visionary men: 
Jean-Sébastien Robicquet, founder of EWG Spirits & Wine, groundbreaking brand creator and producer (G'Vine gin and esprit de June liqueur) and Carlos Camarena, precursor and award-winning tequila master-distiller (Tapatio and El Tesoro tequilas) and at the origin of the "Extra-Añejo" category.

Sharing the same common values, the two men respect the traditions, know-hows and the culture they’re coming from while implementing their innovative vision to the spirit industry.


Description

Handcrafted in the highlands of Jalisco, Excellia™ is made from 100% agave Tequilana Weber Blue. 
The estate grown blue agave plants are cut by hand, cooked slowly in traditional bricks and stone ovens. The cooked agaves are shredded and crushed to extract the aromatic agave juice and then fermented in wooden vats and twice distilled in copper stills. 
A separate ageing in vintage grand cru sauternes casks and in twenty-years-old cognac barrels followed by a unique blending completes this very authentic tequila making-process.

Excellia™ Blanco: rested a few weeks - the legislation allows an ageing of maximum two months for Blanco tequilas.


Tasting notes

Rested a few weeks in grand cru sauternes wine casks and cognac barrels, Excellia™ Blanco is clear with a faint of gold shade.
The nose reveals cloves, tobacco and toast/brioche notes.
On the palate, Excellia™ Blanco is complex with a mix of spices, vanilla, fruits and leather aromas.
The finish is long on the mid-palate and presents dried spices and faint jasmine notes.

Excellia™ Blanco is the best example yet of a well-made blanco Highland tequila that dares to use, expertly, the sort of delicate flavours usually only seen in an añejo or extra-añejo, without losing the classic focus and strength which makes blanco the favourite tequila category among many connoisseurs
