On the season of HBO's inside-the-biz comedy Entouragethat just ended a few weeks back, hot young movie star Vincent Chase got involved with -- in descending order of destructiveness -- cocaine, porn star Sasha Grey, and Avion tequila. It turns out Avion, just like Sasha, is real -- and much less expensive. Better yet, it went on sale in Florida just this month. Depending on how much Avion is aged, a bottle goes for between $40 and $60.
Avion turned up on Entourage because one of the company's founders, Kenny Dichter is a buddy of the show's producer, Doug Ellin. Personally I'd rather be pals with Sasha, which I guess is why Kenny is a zillionaire distiller and I'm -- well, not. Anyway, I've tasted Avion, in somewhat more moderate quantities than Vincent Chase did, and it's pretty good. It doesn't really attract porn stars, though. At least not that I noticed.
