Avion Reserva 44 Extra Anejo Tequila
Avión Reserva 44 Extra Anejo Tequila is expertly crafted using an ultra-slow filtration and aging process in a temperature-controlled cave. The process is used to give this new tequila a deep and complex flavor, designed for a refined palate.
Tequila Avión is made using the finest Blue Weber Agave in the highest regions of Jalisco, Mexico (7,000 feet above sea level). This elevation creates more depth and character in the agave. The Agave is low roasted in brick ovens under low temperatures. Afterwards, Ultra Slow Filtration occurs removing all particles to create the smoothest tequila possible. The entire process takes 10x longer than the traditional technique, creating a “moment of elevation.”
Because of their great complexity, Anejo Tequilas are most often used as a substitute for Brandy or Whiskey in cocktails like the Manhattan or Old Fashioned. Anejo Tequilas must be aged in oak barrels for between one and three years, while Extra Anejo refers to any Tequila aged longer than three years. The prolonged contact with the oak barrel allows the wood to make a much stronger impression on the Tequila by adding toffee, caramel and vanilla to the sweet, spicy agave flavor profile.
