From the importer PM Spirits: "Excellia Tequila combines the Mexican origins and craftsmanship of award-winning Tequila producer Carlos Camarena with the French expertise of Jean-Sebastian Robicquet, Master Blender and founder of Maison Villevert. Excellia is handcrafted in the highlands of Jalisco from estate grown, 100% Tequilana Blue Weber Agave. Plants are cut by hand after 8 years at full maturity and cooked slowly in traditional brick and stone ovens. The cooked agaves are shredded and crushed, then fermented in wooden vats. The fermented juice is double distilled in copper pot stills in La Altena Distillery, keeping only the heat of the distillation in a process similar to Cognac." The resulting tequila is matured in separately in Cognac and Sauternes casks with the reposado aging for 6-12 months in those casks before bottling. A beautiful sipping tequila with generous citrus, floral and barrel notes up front. On the palate it shows a generous amount of spice, pepper and fresh herbs. Enjoy neat from a snifter (any bowl-shaped glass will do).
