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.
The Avion Espresso Liqueur uses Italian Espresso along with their silver tequila and agave. Using Espresso is a step up.The bouquet on the Avion Espresso Liqueur is deep, rich, and dark roasted espresso balanced perfectly with Avion’s signature silver Tequila along with roasted agave, white pepper, and dark chocolate. The entry carries the balance between espresso and tequila marvelously with an ideal level of sweetness to counterpoint the bitterness from the dark espresso. In the mid-palate there’s no doubt that you are drinking tequila as the flavors from the agave spirit really shine through. Tequila Avion Silver is generally quite spicy and clean, but in the Avion Espresso Liqueur the spice level is really brought down a notch by the sweet agave. There is still a general character of cleanness even though it’s a liqueur. At the end of the mid-palate the tequila notes shrink back a bit to permit the espresso notes to re-emerge, and it’s those espresso notes which really carry through to the finish which is long, slightly sweet, rich Espresso.
