About Us

A Winning Partnership

Tequila Ocho is made by Carlos Camarena, a third generation Tequilero, in partnership with Tomas Estes. This dynamic partnership delivers heritage and tradition, coupled with innovation. Carlos and Tomas produce tequila that is made slowly in an artisanal way. The result is a fine quality spirit that accentuates the agave flavour. It is concentrated and complex while remaining balanced and easy to drink.

Character

Tequila Ocho demonstrates that “terroir” exists in agave. Ocho’s single estates show through their distinct aroma and character. Tequila Ocho opens up and develops in the glass the same way a fine wine does.

Innovation

Ocho is the first tequila to designate both the year it was produced and the precise field from which the agave was harvested as is done with fine wines. Each estate, or “rancho” produces a limited amount of agave, each vintage of Ocho is both rare and collectable.

Why “Ocho” ? (that’s eight in English)

This tequila is made from the eigth sample created by the Camarenas for Tomas Estes.

It takes eight days from when the agaves reach the patio at the distillery until it becomes blanco (unaged) tequila.

Carlos Camarena has eight brothers and sisters.

The Camarenas are in their eighth decade of producing tequila.

HOW IS TEQUILA OCHO MADE?
