Tequila Avión has landed in Texas, and liquor stores and bars throughout the state are receiving their first shipments of the Silver, Reposado and Añejo tequilas. Texas is the fifth state in which Tequila Avión has launched. The spirit first gained notoriety when it was featured on HBO's Entourage, and quickly took off in the New York City and Los Angeles markets.
According to Jenna Fagnan, President of Tequila Avión LLC., “Demand for Tequila Avión has exceeded all expectations. Texas is a critical market since it is one of the highest tequila consuming states and has a dynamic, multi-cultural and vibrant social scene.” Initial distribution will include select bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels and retailers throughout the state.
Tequila Avion is produced by fifth generation agave growers from Blue Weber agave found in the highest regions of Jalisco, Mexico. Tequila Avion’s distinct flavors are achieved through a combination of slow-roasting at lower temperatures to protect the natural flavors of the agave and an ultra-slow filtration process which creates an unusually smooth taste profile.
Tequila Avion is available in Dallas area liquor stores including Sigel's. The Silver, Reposado and Añejo tequilas retail for $55, $60 and $65, respectively. For more, click to read a review of Tequila Avion.
