As this weekend draws near, the Strip is abuzz with energy; much of it due to Saturday’s match between Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Connor McGregor. So, imagine my delight upon being told that – in honor of Mayweather’s 50th professional fight – Tequila Avión (the official spirit of ShulmanSays) has created a limited edition, commemorative bottle of their premier offering, the Avión Reserva 44 Extra Anejo
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has hand-signed each of the 150 fire-polished crystal bottles, in this collector’s edition of Reserva 44, each of which has been etched with his likeness, and comes incased in a presentation box, with a certificate of authenticity. B
ottled in extremely limited batches, Avión Reserva 44 Extra Anejo Tequila features the distinctive character of the Avión agave’s distinctive character. Hand-selected and estate-grown at an elevation of 7,000 feet above sea level; the Avion agave is slow-roasted in brick ovens, for 72 hours; after which it is painstakingly distilled and filtered, before being aged for 43 months in oak barrels. The unbelievably smooth and balanced finish – with hints of warm vanilla, and ripe, luscious fruits, with a touch of spice – continues to receive acclaim from critics and the public, alike
Conversations with Tequila Avión began when Mayweather and his team approached Avión Founder, Ken Austin, regarding their shared vision. Both Mayweather and Tequila Avión share a love of their respective crafts. Says Austin, “The team at Tequila Avión joins in the belief of never cutting corners and putting the work in. Much like Floyd Mayweather Jr., our brand believes in the pressure of perfection, which is shown in the unwavering commitment to our tequila. We are looking forward to a great fight-night and thank Floyd for selecting Tequila Avión to take part in this historical moment in time for boxing and MMA fans around the world.
Mayweather joins in Tequila Avión’s constant striving for excellence. Commenting on the commemorative bottle, Mayweather shared “Creating this bespoke bottle with Ken and Tequila Avión was a given. Avión epitomizes the highest in quality, which is all I accept in life. As a world-class athlete, I have spent my life training to be the best, and as such I’d only work with and associate with the best tequila in the world to have my image and personal signature.
The 150 commemorative bottles of Avión Reserva 44 Extra Anejo Tequila, are available for purchase, at Total Wine & More (see link, below). Expect a sticker price in the neighborhood of $1,500 (which, compared to the cost of a seat at this weekend's fight, is a steal)!
