OCHO BLANCO TEQUILA
50cl / 40%
A 100% agave silver Tequila from the Camarena family (El Tesoro, Tapatio) in conjunction with Tomas Estes (owner of infamous Cafe Pacifico). A luscious, full-textured white Tequila, with beautiful 100% agave flavour integrity – this is one to watch.
Ocho 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 dierent field or “Rancho” contributing distinctive characteristics of that place. It is well understood in the wine industry that “terroir” has a tremendous eect on the grapes used for winemaking. Slowly this same concept is becoming understood in the tequila world.
Tequila Ocho is made by Carlos Camarena, a third generation tequilero. His heritage and tradition coupled with his innovative spirit creates a tequila that is concentrated, complex and at the same time balanced, smooth and inviting to drink.
*This is El Bajio from the Rancho el Bajio and bottled in 2018.
Enjoyably spicy, with hints of red chilli and black pepper. Earthy agave and a touch of honey.
