Avion is the small batch, ultra-premium tequila that has defined a new standard of quality and taste. Tequila Avion was created by Founder, Ken Austin and produced with the Lopez family, a fifth generation agave grower.  Avion begins with the finest handpicked Blue Weber agave found in the highest regions of Jalisco, Mexico.  Avion was voted ‘Best Tasting Unaged White Spirit’ and ‘Best Tasting Tequila’ at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Tequila Avion’s distinct flavors are achieved through a combination of slow roasting Avion Agave at low temperatures for 3 days to protect the natural flavors and a proprietary ultra-slow filtration process that creates an unusually smooth taste profile. Tequila Avion is available in Silver, Reposado, Anejo, Espresso Liqueur and Avion Reserva 44. In July 2014, Pernod Ricard, the world’s co-leader in wines and spirits, took a majority equity interest in Tequila Avionand handles brand distribution.
