A silver tequila or an aged tequila? It’s a question you’ve probably been asking yourself as you begin to explore the world of tequila. With all the different varieties and aging processes it’s easy to be a little overwhelmed. So let’s take a closer look at what’s out there so you can best decide which tequila is right for you.
Blanco or silver tequila is tequila in its purest form. Straight from copper still to bottle. It’s rarely if ever aged, thus allowing the authentic taste of the agave to shine through. It’s perfect to take along on a lazy Sunday picnic or to those pool parties where new friends mix with old and something special is needed to lighten the mood and help forge new connections.
The silver tequila drinker is easygoing and loves to share relaxing moments with the core people in their lives. Always willing to try new things, you’re someone who values substance over hype and the same goes for your choice of tequila, for you Avión Silver ticks all the boxes.
After resting in oak barrels for between two to twelve months a tequila reposado takes on the nuances of the wood whilst retaining the brightness of the agave. Pleasant notes of oak and vanilla and the beautiful amber hue of the spirit only add to the experience.
Six months in American whiskey barrels means Avión Reposado is aged slightly longer than most tequilas, it’s an elevated taste experience like no other. As a tequila reposado aficionado you appreciate this. You value time spent in your own company, yet you know the importance of being flexible. Because there are times for a cocktail with friends but there are also those moments you will want to set aside to spend with that special someone.
Tequila Añejo and Tequila Extra Añejo
Añejo means “old” or “vintage” in Spanish and signifies that a tequila has been aged in small oak barrels for between one and three years. Extra añejo tequila by comparison has been left to age in oak for a minimum of three years and that extra time results in a fuller, slightly more complex finish.
Aged a little more than the standard three years Avión Reserva 44 is an extra añejo tequila that truly goes to the next level. So if you enjoy an extra añejo then it’s clear that you know what you like and there you know there is no compromising. You make sure to take time out to enjoy the things in life that matter because it’s part of how you restore yourself. That an extra añejo can only truly be appreciated when sipped slowly doesn’t need to be explained to you. It’s just in your DNA.
