Product of: Mexico
Aged for 16 months in Grand Cru Sauternes wine casks and cognac casks - four months longer than is legally required for an añejo tequila. This unusual use of wood from two French regions allows Excellia to be influenced by the flavours of the Sauternes and cognac previously held in the casks. Read more

Clear, bright golden.
Spicy, lightly woody nose with cinnamon, cloves, gingerbread and glue-like herbaceous aromas.
Spicy (ginger and white pepper in particular) wood influenced palate with tannins giving an almost chewy mouthfeel but balanced by subtle sweet fruit and honeyed flavours.
The long spicy finish mellows with very subtle chocolate flavours emerging.
Closure: Screw / Stelvin cap
