Avión Reserva 44 Extra Añejo is aged for 43 months in oak barrels then an additional month in specially selected petite barrels which are rotated daily. 100% of Avión’s agave comes from Jesus Maria, grown on lands that are owned or managed by the Lopez family. At around 7,000 feet above sea level, the nutrient-rich soil and large temperature swings create a rich, naturally sweet agave. The single-source Avión agave each take 7-10 years to reach maturity. Only the finest agave is handpicked when ripe, harvested by the family’s team of jimadores in the traditional method. After distillation, the tequila “juice” undergoes ultra-slow filtration – a proprietary approach that takes up to 10 times longer. This ensures the rich agave flavor is protected while removing alcoholic overtones and impurities. Avión uses white oak barrels previously used to age American whiskey. Avión Añejo is aged for two years – two times longer than required.
