Excellia Tequila Blanco
Excellia Tequila Blanco is 100% Agave and rests a few weeks in Grand Cru Sauternes wine casks and cognac barrels. Excellia Blanco is a fine example of a well-made Highland Tequila that dares to use the delicate flavors typically seen in an Añejo or Extra Añejo, without losing the classic focus and strength found in Blanco Tequila.
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).
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.
Excellia™ benefits from the influence of three different regions and two cultures:
Los altos (Jalisco, Mexico)
A hot and dry climate followed by a heavy rainy season and the rich red clay soil rich in minerals of the highlands generate sweet, soft and fruity Agaves.
Sauternes region (France)
A micro-climate with foggy mornings, sunny afternoons by the river and botrytis create the Grand Cru of dessert wine with delicate notes of dried fruits and flowers and a perfect balance between acidity and sugar.
Cognac region (France)
A lot of sun with the right amount of rain, mild temperatures all year long thanks to the ocean's influence and the region's chalky soil contribute to the finest brandy and its so specific rancio character.
