As Seen on Entourage: Avion Tequila Made from Blue Weber Agave
The first time I heard of Avion Tequila was on the HBO series Entourage. I didn't realize it was a real product until I was sent a bottle. This tequila is made from one of the world's finest agaves.
Tequila Aviõn is produced with only the finest Blue Weber Agave found in the highest regions of Jalisco, Mexico. Higher elevation and topography creates more stress on the plants which in turn leads to more depth and character in the tequila. The plants found in this region are known to be the most coveted plants for tequila production due to their rich mineral content and distinct quality and character. Once harvested, the Tequila Aviõn agave is slow roasted in brick ovens under low temperatures, producing a more rich and robust flavor.
There are many delicious cocktail recipes that can be made with Avion.

As far as the eco-friendly characteristics of this tequila, it is made naturally with traditional methods. Of course, the glass bottle is recyclable. I am not aware of other sustainable practices.
