Avion Anejo Tequila - Spirits Worth Raising

Avion Anejo Tequila

In 2012, Avin Silver was voted "Worlds 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. The unique history that led to this and other accolades began in the small town of Jesus Maria in Jalisco, Mexico. Avin Tequila is the brainchild of Ken Austin, longtime tequila aficionado and entrepreneur. Austin traversed Mexicos 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.Grown at 7,000 feet above sea level, each Avin agave takes between seven and ten years to fully grow. Once mature, the agaves are harvested and roasted in brick ovens for 72 hours, which brings out the naturally sweet flavors of the plant. Avin is twice-distilled, with the heads and tails of the resulting distillate being removed to focus on the heart this labor-intensive process means that up to 30 percent more agaves are used in making Avin than in other ultra-premium tequilas. Once the distilling is complete, Avin is slow-filtered to showcase the hard work and high-quality, artisan ingredients that have gone into making the tequila.To earn the distinction aejo, tequilas must aged for a minimum of one year, and most aejo tequilas are aged for only that long. Avin Aejo Tequila, however, is aged for two years (twice the requirement), and as a result has a rich amber color along with an aroma of burnt agaves, peaches and persimmon. The palate is filled with flavors of toasted wood, vanilla and caramel, and leads to an incredibly smooth finish marked by maple, coconut and and lemon squares.Drinkhacker called Avin Aejo Tequila a masterpiece.
