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.
