For Tequila Tuesday this week we have Excellia Tequila.
Excellia is a marriage of authenticity and innovation built upon traditions deeply rooted in the French and Mexican Cultures.
Excesllia Tequila is a state of the art alliance of three regions: Los Altos, Sauternes, and Cognac. Handcrafted in the highlands of Jalisco, Excellia is made from 100% blue agave.
Harvested by hands, the agaves are slowly cooked in traditional ovens. The aromatic agave juice is then extracted, fermented, and distilled twice in copper stills.
A separate aging in vintage Grand Cru Sauternes casks and in twenty year old Cognac barrels followed by a unique blending completes this very authentic tequila making process.
Excellia Blanco is only aged a few weeks, and has a pale golden straw color. The Bouquet slightly releases notes of wood, spices and fruits. The smooth finish rounds off the palate.
Excellia Reposado's complex bouquet mixes sweet vinic aromas with red berry and spicy notes. The wood and wine expressions brought by the eight months aging perfectly envelop gingerbread, honey nectar, and cocoa flavors.
Excellia Anejo is aged sixteen months and delivers at first the rancio flavors from the cognac barrel. Then, the bouquet offers honey, fruity and floral notes. The long finish is soft and silky with cocoa flavors. Excellia Anejo is draped in amber color with golden glints.
