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™ Añejo: aged eighteen months - Añejo Tequilas should be aged at least twelve months. 


Tasting notes

Excellia Añejo is aged for 16 months in  Sauternes and Cognac barrels (the normal period is 12 months).

  • Visually: clear, earthy yellow with golden highlights.
  • Bouquet: complex spices. Notes of honey, fruit and flowers. The floral perception with sweet notes are present. Wood notes, pear, lilac and red flowers and spices such as cinnamon, cloves and ginger.
  • Evolution in the mouth: memories of a small astringent tannins, agave and sweet dessert wines.
  • Ending: very well balanced, round and spicy. A final flavors reminiscent of cocoa. Very persistent.

Observations

The perfect serve is "on the rocks" gently moving the glass as the ice melts.
