Ocho featured in The Robb Reports’ “15 Best Tequilas You Can Buy Right Now

“Tequila Ocho Plata 2017 Single Estate “Los Patos” ($50) smells of peaches, bananas, lemongrass and straw. The list of flavors in the mix includes chamomile, rosemary, peppermint, avocado and green olives. It opens and develops in the glass like a fine wine.”

The Hundred Dollar Margarita at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar has had a great run. Dozens of news outlets across the United States – both local and national – picked up on this story. But that’s not the end of our collaboration, keep watching this space for more to come.

Where We’re Drinking this Month

Los Sotano, in Hong Kong

Los Sotano is an underground new-Mexican restaurant and speakeasy, located in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong. This hidden gem boasts a huge selection of agave spirits and sophisticated, fun design inspired by urban Mexico.

Rob Kariakin, the Beverage Director for the group, creates some wonderfully unique serves at the bar, including this Mangosteen Margarita: with Ocho Blanco, homemade mangosteen jam & fresh lime juice.
Video of the Month

Earlier this month Tomas & Jesse Estes traveled to Athens to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with their Greek friends. Bar Academy Athens interviewed them during their visit, but rather than coming up with their own interview questions, they asked their followers on Instagram to send questions in. The result is a fun and quirky interview session. Click here to watch the full video.


Until next month, stay well & sipping good tequila,
