Sipping Off The Cuff: Alma de Agave Tequila Reposado

Sipping Off The Cuff: Rancho La Joya Tequila Reposado

rancho la joyaRancho La Joya Tequila

35 years ago the Garcia family acquired a land known as “Rancho La Joya” in the heart of the Mexican highlands. The red soil was rich in nutrients, vital to the growth and smooth taste of the world’s most flavorful agave plants. With hard work and dedication, the family turned their land into the most beautiful and productive agave farm in the State of Jalisco – with over 8 MILLION plants.
The family invested a small fortune in research & development to create the most advanced, unique and sanitary tequila distillery in the world.

The Garcia family has grown and harvested the Blue Agave Tequilana Weber variety across three generations. Their vast agave fields are considered the richest in the region, due to the care and effort placed on each plant. Rancho La Joya’s agave has been sold to many of the most popular tequila companies around the world for decades. After years of effort dedicated to creating the richest tasting premium tequila in the world, from the heart of their best plants, the Garcia’s are proud to launch the La Joya brand – designed to deliver the “Pure Feeling” of enjoying the best tasting tequila that Mexico has to offer.

Mike Morales and Alex Perez of Tequila Aficionado Media taste and discuss Rancho La Joya reposado tequila, proclaiming it a “great flavor explosion in your mouth”, an “improvement on the blanco” and were generally impressed.

About Avion Tequila

avion anejoThe vision was simple. Create the world’s best tasting tequila. Tequila Avión Founder, Ken Austin, a long time tequila aficionado and entrepreneur, wanted to share his passion for tequila with the world. Thus, he set out to create a tequila that would embody the rich flavor of highlands roasted agave, a flavor that once you taste it, you will never forget it. Ken believed the world should understand that tequila can truly be delicious.
The journey to create Avión led Ken throughout Mexico and Jalisco to find the most coveted rich highlands agave. This is where he came upon the small town of Jesus Maria and the Lopez family, a fifth generation agave grower. Together they spent years blending old-school, small batch tequila making techniques with a philosophy of never cutting corners and pushed the current methodologies to create a tequila that surprises the palate and pays homage to the highlands rich, roasted agave. This is Avión, which bartenders, consumers and experts describe as, quite simply, delicious.

After winning World’s Best Tasting Tequila, Avión has seen record growth thanks to the love of consumer, bartenders and tequila aficionados. However, we can grow only as fast as our time intensive, small batch production process allows. Thus from time to time, different markets may run out of stock. Today Avión is available in Mexico, USA, Canada, Australia, France, and many other countries.
Avión has been lucky to win many coveted awards and to be highlighted amongst the media as the world’s best tequila. Oprah chose Avión Espresso as part of her O-List. Bloomberg did an hour segment on the growth of Avión. Men’s Health chose Avión Anejo as one of the best brown spirits and the list goes on. And of course, many know Avión from the special role it played in the hit HBO show (and one of our favorites), Entourage. This came out of a longtime friendship between our Founders and Doug Ellin, the creator of Entourage. It’s good to have friends.
