Ocho Tequila is the product of a partnership between Tomas Estes and Carlos Camarena. The Camarena Family have been making Tequila since 1937, with Carlos being the third generation of Tequilero.
Ocho Tequila is produced exclusively from Agave from Carlos and Tomas' own fields, and crafted in small-batches to ensure quality and consistency across each distillation.
After distillation, the Ocho Anejo expression is aged in ex-bourbon barrels fro 1 year. The resulting Tequila is rounded and sweet, with lovely caramel tones and fruit notes, mixed with herbal notes and freshly cracked pepper. Definitely a Tequila for sipping and quiet contemplation.
Rancho "La Latilla" slopes gently from the east giving full afternoon sun exposure. The rancho has mature cedar and oak trees around the land. The soil is typical of the Highlands with red oxide and clay and is slightly acidic. This ranch is about 1 kilometer from the distillery, "La Alteña" where Tequila Ocho is made.
