Avión Silver Tequila
Avión // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Avión Tequila revamped its packaging in mid-2018 to reflect the single origin for its agave. All agaves used in the production of the tequila is sourced from the town of Jesus Maria, located at 7,000 ft. above sea level in the Los Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico. The tequila is distilled in small batches and finished with a "proprietary" ultra-slow filtration. Each bottle is hand-filled and labeled with batch number and a bottle code.
Tequila BlancoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is typically unaged , clear, and bottled straight after distillation. Sometimes rested in stainless steel up to 60 days and can also be aged in wood for no more than 30 days.
"Perhaps a bit more complex than earlier bottling, this tequila shows an expressive nose of baked pepper, cream soda, lemon peel, crushed mint, and a touch of milk chocolate. The palate continues with a gentle herbaceous tones complimented by a touch of habanero spice and salt crystal flavors that are well balanced if not overwhelming pronounced. The finish still strikes clean and brisk making this a versatile blanco with enough body and finesse to enjoy on its own. (Note: Review from Batch 883A, Bottle 2783)"
