The Avión story begins in the small town of Jesus Maria, Mexico. Here, single origin, blue agave is grown at some of the highest elevations for 7 – 10 years. A multi award winning tequila, Avión is crafted with a simple philosophy; we 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.
In 2012, Avión Silver was voted «World’s Best Tasting Tequila» and «Best Unaged White Spirit» at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition beating out all vodkas, gins, white rums and other tequilas.
Avión Tequila is the brainchild of Ken Austin, longtime tequila aficionado and entrepreneur. Austin traversed Mexico’s Highlands region in search of the most coveted agave before finally encountering the Lopez family, fifth-generation agave growers located in Jesus Maria, and falling in love with their rich agave. Together, they honed their tequila-making skills, blending old-school techniques with newer methodologies and always ensuring that no corners were cut along the way.
