About Avion Tequila
The vision was simple. Create the world’s best tasting tequila. Tequila Avión Founder, Ken Austin, a long time tequila aficionado and entrepreneur, wanted to share his passion for tequila with the world. Thus, he set out to create a tequila that would embody the rich flavor of highlands roasted agave, a flavor that once you taste it, you will never forget it. Ken believed the world should understand that tequila can truly be delicious.
The journey to create Avión led Ken throughout Mexico and Jalisco to find the most coveted rich highlands agave. This is where he came upon the small town of Jesus Maria and the Lopez family, a fifth generation agave grower. Together they spent years blending old-school, small batch tequila making techniques with a philosophy of never cutting corners and pushed the current methodologies to create a tequila that surprises the palate and pays homage to the highlands rich, roasted agave. This is Avión, which bartenders, consumers and experts describe as, quite simply, delicious.
After winning World’s Best Tasting Tequila, Avión has seen record growth thanks to the love of consumer, bartenders and tequila aficionados. However, we can grow only as fast as our time intensive, small batch production process allows. Thus from time to time, different markets may run out of stock. Today Avión is available in Mexico, USA, Canada, Australia, France, and many other countries.
Avión has been lucky to win many coveted awards and to be highlighted amongst the media as the world’s best tequila. Oprah chose Avión Espresso as part of her O-List. Bloomberg did an hour segment on the growth of Avión. Men’s Health chose Avión Anejo as one of the best brown spirits and the list goes on. And of course, many know Avión from the special role it played in the hit HBO show (and one of our favorites), Entourage. This came out of a longtime friendship between our Founders and Doug Ellin, the creator of Entourage. It’s good to have friends.
