Jean-Sébastien Robicquet and Carlos Camarena, both very talented and respected in their own right, have collaborated on a range of tequilas known as Excellia. Made with 100% blue agave from Jalisco and matured in sauternes casks and 20 year old Cognac barrels - which the Excellia Reposado spends nine months in.
Born from the partnership of two men and two know-hows, Excellia tequila marries to perfection the agave and grape characters, the wine and spirits worlds.
Excellia is a blend of authenticity and innovation built upon deeply rooted traditions.
Excellia is the fruit of the meeting of two visionary men: Jean-Sébastien Robicquet, founder of Maison Villevert, 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) and at the origin of the ""Extra-Añejo"" category. 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.
Like the meaning of the word "Excellence", Excellia possesses premium qualities in an eminent degree. Excellia can also be interpreted as ""Ex-Cellar"" in reference to the ageing cellars, maturation and the time needed for the casks to gain their brandy and sweet wine personalities. Moreover, Excellia is a feminine name in a masculine world (the name tequila in Spanish is of male gender). Excellia provides elegance, sophistication, roundness and smoothness to the tequila category.
