Full and complex cooked agave notes, dark cacao, coffee, nutmeg, vanilla, dried fruits, and salted caramel Deep and complex, long-lasting peppery finish with a buttery mouthfeel 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, 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. Because the production is small-batch and carefully done, the heart and passion of the Camarenas' Mexican soul is in each
drop of their tequila. The family have only ever made 100% agave tequila. Tequila Ocho is a joint partnership between the Camarenas and Tomas Estes. Ocho is a meeting of the passion, experience, and knowledge between Estes and the Camarena family, resulting in the finest tequila possible. Carlos Camarena, a third generation tequilero, is The Master Distiller of Tequila Ocho, made at Los Alambiques distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. The attention to making the finest tequila possible starts in the agave fields. The plants grow in a healthy environment and are not harvested until each is over-ripe. Tequila Ocho values using traditional methods which keep the production process as natural and artisanal as possible. For that reason, only brick ovens are used. Tequila Ocho ages in 200 liter American Oak barrels, previously used for ageing American Whiskey.
