About Revel Avila Añejo
Revel Spirits was launched in 2012 with the mission to create hand-crafted premium agave-based spirits using all-natural ingredients and a unique process. Combining tradition with innovation sets them apart from countless other producers. Revel Avila is their flagship brand of sipping agave spirit that has won awards at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, among others. They are not just about making premium spirits, but also contribute to charities and non-profits, taking part in events and donating, building infrastructure, and creating jobs.
Avila is crafted in the Morelos region of Mexico using 100% pure agave by families with a rich distilling tradition. The spirit is the middle ground between mezcal and tequila, as it combines roasting and steaming. The naturally-pollinated agaves come from a region that hasn't been over-farmed, where they grow around 3,000 feet above the sea level, in the warm and humid climate of Morelos.
The piñas are roasted for 48 hours in a pit, filled with volcanic rock from the local volcano. Half of the time it is covered, half uncovered. A tube is inserted into the pit during this process, reducing the smokiness of the spirit. They combine roasting with the more modern steaming method that is traditionally used in tequila-making, employing an autoclave oven. The steamed and roasted piñas are combined for the fermentation stage, creating a unique flavor.
The spirit is then triple distilled, making for a smooth, super-clean, and premium end result. This Añejo expression is based on the Revel Avila Blanco, which spends 24 months in French oak barrels and is bottled at a high 96 proof.
