Avion Tequila Silver
Avión creates some of the most popular tequilas in the entire world. The blue agave used to create Avión ages for seven to 10 years and comes from a single origin, resulting in the purest tequila you have ever tasted. Once harvested, the agave is slow roasted for three days, releasing the rich flavor of the plant. Known for its smoothness, Avión Silver is perfect for drinking neat or on the rocks. For cocktail fans, this tequila is the ideal ingredient for mouthwatering drinks such as a Silver and soda or a negroni. Avión traces its roots to the town of Jesus Maria in the Jalisco region of Mexico. It is here that the Lopez family first created this tequila, and it is also where the Avión agave is still harvested to this day. The delicate distillation process results in a clear, pure tequila that is beloved across the world. Avión has been voted both the World's Best Unaged White Spirit and the World's Best Tasting Tequila at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Do you remember the name Tequila Avión from HBO’s Entourage, the spirit company that Turtle promoted as a subplot of the major story? The problem for Avión Tequila was that people didn’t think it was real. They figured it was made-for-TV tequila. Guess what? “Yes, It’s Real!”
Founded 2010 by Ken Austin, Avión has worked with the Lopez family, agave growers from Jesus Maria, Mexico for multiple generations. Avión has been able to create a single-origin and 100 percent natural tequila with superior taste. In 2012, Avión was named “World’s Best Tasting Tequila” and “World’s Best Tasting Unaged Spirit” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and from then on, things have really taken off.
The philosophy at Avión is quite simple; they are “committed to creating a single origin tequila that embodies the best of craft processes to ensure the natural, rich, and roasted flavors of the Avión agave.”
Only the finest single source agave is handpicked when ripe, harvested by the family’s team of jimadores. The agave is slow roasted in brick ovens for three days. The low temperatures perfectly caramelize the agave, bringing out the natural sweetness and rich flavors. Avión is distilled in small pot stills handmade in Jesus Maria.
