Day 245 Drink: Tequila Avion Silver
Tequila Avion plays a prominent part in the plot of the current season of the HBO series Entourage. While Turtle is able to use Hollywood star power to create demand that outstrips the television distillery's capacity, in real life the brand was founded by Ken Austin, whose background includes stints with E&J Gallo and The Seagram Beverage Co.
Tequila Avion Silver has a herbal, earthy nose. The flavor is smooth, with hints of spice, a touch of grass, a hit of citrus and fresh herbs. There is just a slight smoke note to the aftertaste. A very nice silver.
