Avión Reserva 44 Extra Añejo Tequila is “the culmination of [Avión’s] bespoke tequila process,” says Ken Austin, Avión’s founder and chairman. After filtratration, the tequila is placed in oak barrels for 44 months — 43 of those months are spent in traditional oak barrels, and the final month is spent in “petite” oak barrels which are rotated daily. This unique finishing process imparts even more character unto the tequila, and as a result, Avión Reserva 44 Extra Añejo Tequila has a deep aroma of roasted agave, along with scents of vanilla and light citrus, particularly lemon zest. The nose gives way to flavors of dried fruits, cinnamon and eucalyptus on the palate, which leads to an extremely long and rich finish.
Each bottle of Avion Reserva 44 Extra Añejo Tequila is hand-numbered and signed by Avion’s founder, Ken Austin.
