Avión was born from a love of tequila and its rich robust agave flavor. Founder Ken Austin embarked on a journey to fulfill his dream and create a tequila that would celebrate the highlands’ agave flavor. This led Ken to Jesus Maria, where the world’s best agave is grown and where the Lopez family lovingly manages the land.
Together in collaboration Ken and the Lopez family spent years blending old-school tequila making techniques with a philosophy of never cutting corners and focusing on the art of creating tequila. Every step of the process works to preserve and enhance the natural, rich, roasted flavors of the Avión agave. This is Avión, which bartenders, consumers and experts describe as, quite simply, delicious.
In 2012, Avión was crowned “World’s Best Tasting Tequila” and “World’s Best White Spirit” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (the most prestigious competition for the spirits industry). Ranking #1 against all tequilas, vodkas, gins and white rums. Over 1400 spirit brands entered the competition.
