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