The inherent quality and exceptional technique of Avion Tequila shines in Silver.

Just outside the town of Jesus Maria in the Highlands of Jalisco, the Lopez family grows agave plants for making Tequila. Ken Austin found them there, and partnered with them to make a new Tequila together — creating Avion Tequila. The Highlands have the best volcanic soils and perfect combination of micro climates to produce the best Tequilas in the world. In fact, their signature Tequila was awarded "World’s Best Tasting Tequila" and "World’s Best White Spirit" in 2012 against 1400 other Spirit brands at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. They currently produce Silver, Reposado, Añejo, and an Extra Añejo Tequila, along with a unique Espresso Tequila Liqueur.

Avion Tequila Silver is a classic Joven — Tequila bottled fresh from the still. As you would expect, Avion Silver is made from 100% blue agave. And to our palate, it is with the un-aged Spirits that the importance of elevation and soil matter the most. When a Spirits is aged, the flavor of the wood steps forward. When a Spirit is un-aged the natural attributes of terroir, ingredients, technique, and skill are on full display. And in that, Avion Silver Tequila shines.

Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.

Tequila goes bad with time! Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidation and evaporation diminish the quality of the Tequila and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
Tequila is made from one type of agave, Blue agave. Each of these plants takes at least 6 years, more likely a year or two longer to mature.

Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.
