This week we are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Tales of the Cocktail with a special drink from one of their events.  Tales of the Cocktail and Whiskey Blue are presenting an evening of music, entertainment and discovery on Friday, July 27, 2012, asking the age old question, what Excellia cocktail are you: Timeless, Tailor-Made or Caliente? Discover your inner cocktail personality by answering a simple survey that will pair you up with a signature cocktail provided by Excellia.  The night will include an unforgettable performance by D!Musik and drummer Eric Rogers as they team up for a one of a kind musical experience curating a special playlist to accompany each Excellia cocktail.

Excellia Tequila is new to the market in the U.S. offering 100% blue agave tequila aged and matured in wine casks and cognac barrels bringing together the heritage and modernity of the spirits as well as wine worlds.
