Excellia Anejo Tequila 750ml
Aged eighteen months, Excellia™ Añejo delivers dessert wine aromas (ripe and sweet grapes, dried apricots and pears) with evolving notes of rancio, baked spices and herbs, leather and sandalwood. The palate is intense and round with a strong and tannic woodiness along with fresh spices, tingling pepper and sweet charcoal notes. The long finish is gradual and revelatory with balanced lingering tones of cocoa and orchard.Excellia™ is a unique añejo tequila that spurns the easy, standard añejo-tequila road of
vanilla-and-honey in favour of a great, challenging flavour profile that gives the añejo category what it has until now lacked: credibility as great, aged tequila, without concessions to sweetness. "Excellia™ Añejo is truly a world class sipping tequila with deep and elegant spicy wood character."
Excellia is a unique handcrafted tequila aged in grand cru sauternes wine casks and cognac barrels
Produced by partnership with Carlos Camarena
Born from the partnership of 2 men and 2 know-hows, Excellia tequila marries to perfection the agave and grape characters, the spirits and wine worlds.Excellia is a blend of authenticity and innovation built upon deeply rooted traditions.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 brick 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.See More
