The Three Faces of Avión Tequila

Launched in July 2010, Avión Tequila is changing the way consumers think about tequila. Founder Ken Austin embarked on a personal journey to create a tequila that was not only distinct in flavor but in design. The culmination of his quest is Avión Tequila Añejo, Avión Tequila Reposado and Avión Tequila Silver.

Avión Tequila Añejo:
Aged 2 years with hints of vanilla, caramel, coconut and maple, Avión Tequila Añejo has intense tones of roasted agave, delicate tinges of mint and rosemary, fruity aromas of peach and cherry.

It is extraordinarily harmonious, rich and exquisite in flavor.

Price: $50-$60 / 750ml


Avión Tequila Reposado:
Aged 6 months with a roasted agave presence, notes of cherry, pear, and peach, flower hues of rose petals and tinges of herbs. Its oak aroma is elegant with hints of caramel and vanilla.

It is extremely well balanced and sophisticated in flavor.

Price: $45-$55 / 750ml



Avión Tequila Silver:
The agave aroma in Avión Tequila Silver is intense with herbal tinges of mint and rosemary, delicate hues of flowers and black pepper, hints of grapefruit and pineapple.

It is crisp and clean, well balanced and exceptionally smooth in flavor.

Price: $40-$50 / 750ml
