This vintage of Tequila Ocho Anejo comes from“La Latilla” Estate. "La Latilla" slopes gently from the east giving full afternoon sun exposure. The estate 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 1km from Ocho's distillery, “La Alteña”. At harvest the plants were 7 years of age, being fully mature with an average sugar content of 32%, which is well above usual. Average weight of the piñas (hearts) was 39. The plants were harvested in both later 2014 and early 2015. Tequila Ocho Anejo gives a rich palette of sweet stone fruit, pepper, earth, peppermint, coffee, wood and vanilla.
A rare and collectable vintage Tequila, Ocho is a single-estate grown, small-batch tequila produced as the result of a partnership between two Tequila aficionados, Tomas Estes and Carlos Camarena. 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. Tequila Ocho demonstrates that “terroir” exists in agave, 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. Each estate, or “rancho” produces a limited amount of agave which makes each vintage of Ocho both rare and collectable. Ocho is a meeting of the passion, experience, and knowledge between Estes and the Camarena family, resulting in the finest tequila possible.
