January 2017 Newsletter – updating you on all things Ocho!
Tequila Ocho News
Keeping you updated on your favourite tequila
Every year, the trade publication Drinks International polls owners, managers and bartenders at the 50 Best Bars in the World on their favourite spirits.
They compile the result in their Annual Bar Report.
We are incredibly proud this year to have placed#1 and #2 on the Top Trending Brand and Best Selling Brand, respectively. On top of that, we were also named #4 Overall Favourite (across all spirits) and Bartenders’ Choice, making Ocho the Number One Tequila for bartenders at the 50 Best Bars.

Tomas and Jesse traveled to Denmark this month to put on Masterclasses in Copenhagen, Aarhus and Odense. Their activities even included a paired cheese tasting with agave spirits.
Big thanks to Max Scott and Juuls for organizing everything!
