Our Beginning

The Avión story begins in the small town of Jesus Maria, Mexico. Here, single origin, blue agave is grown at some of the highest elevations for 7 – 10 years.

Our Process

A multi award winning tequila, Avión is crafted with a simple philosophy; we are committed to creating
a single origin tequila that embodies the best of craft processes to ensure the natural, rich, and roasted
flavors of the Avión agave.

By Hand

Only the finest single source agave is handpicked when ripe, harvested by the family’s team of jimadores.


Avión Agave is slow roasted in brick ovens for three days. The low temperatures perfectly caramelize the agave, bringing out the natural sweetness and rich flavors.

Small Batch

Avión is distilled in small pot stills handmade in Jesus Maria. Avión uses up to 30% more agave in each bottle of tequila, making us one of the most proudly inefficient tequila producers.


After distillation, Avión undergoes our proprietary ultra-slow filtration, that takes up to ten times longer.

Aging In
Whiskey Barrels

Avión Reposado spends six months in former American whiskey barrels, which is 3x longer than most. Avión Añejo is aged in former whiskey barrels for two years, 2x longer than most.
