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.
