Ocho

Origin: Mexico

Tequila Ocho is made by Carlos Camarena, a third generation Tequilero, in partnership with the legendary Tomas Estes. It is the first tequila to designate both the year it was produced and the precise field from which the family grown agaves were sourced. Each batch comes from a different field or rancho contributing distinctive characteristics of that place. Ocho means “eight” in English. Ocho came from the eighth sample created by Carlos for Tomas. The agaves ripen for eight years and it takes eight kg of agave to make a litre of Ocho tequila. Production of Ocho blanco takes eight days. Carlos has eight brothers and sisters and the family is in their eighth decade of producing tequila Ocho reposado is rested for 8 weeks and 8 days.
