Ocho Ambassador Phil Bayly recently put on a series of Tequila, Cheese & Oyster pairings in Australia. The surprising pairing went down remarkably well with the events’ attendees.
“Ocho Reposado – Subtly aged for eight weeks in oak barrels, Ocho Reposado has an aroma of coffee, bright agave and pineapple, with delicately balanced flavours of white pepper, vanilla, and dark bitter chocolate, with the oak leaving a mocha and soft vanilla finish on the palate. This is the tequila that enticed me back into the world of tequila.I sipped it for a night and it completely altered my perspective on tequila.” £18.50, Waitrose.com
