Ocho is the brainchild of Tomas Estes and Carlos Camarena, two much loved and celebrated tequila experts

ingredients-icon

Ocho is the first single estate tequila, designed to showcase the agave plant’s ability to convey different flavours from the land. Each vintage is harvested from diverse fields around the Mexican state of Jalisco

ingredients-icon

Agave plant takes 7-10 years to reach maturity. A fully ripe agave will have a higher sugar content and acidity than those harvested earlier and this is the foundation for Ocho's concentrated, complex flavour profiles

Meet The Master Distiller - Carlos Camarena - The Tequila Ocho story begins with the Camarena family, who started making tequila in 1937 and are now in their third generation as tequila producers. This family is one of the few that still make tequila in the slow and artisanal way. All tequila made by the Camarena family is produced exclusively from agave from their own fields, a fact that few other producers can claim.

Tequila Terroir - It is becoming increasingly understood and agreed upon that the concept of ‘terroir’ also exists within the growing of agave and the resulting tequila made from it.

La Ladera (Spanish for “The Hillside”) faces West and has an average 8% slope. This rancho has a total area of 86 acre with an altitude between 2,100 to 2,150 meters above sea level. The land is a rocky slope with a shallow red mineral soil and low to medium fertility. Due to such conditions, the agave plants have relatively low average weight. Nevertheless, the sugar level is high, above 30% of the total weight, due to the stressful conditions in which the plant grows during its full life cycle.
