Tequila Ocho News
Tomas travelled to Amsterdam to put on a series of masterclasses and events. This is one of our favourite photos of the trip taken with at ROSES by Sal.
The Camarenas/Estes families kicked off their European visit at Whisky Live in Paris to discuss the Barrel Swap that took place between Ocho and Maison Ferrand.
Next stop on the trip was Maison Ferrand in Cognac, where the Esteses and Camarenas got to visit Chateau Bonbonnet and taste delicious Plantation Rums, Citadelle Gins & Pierre Ferrand Cognac. They also held a Tequila Ocho blending session with Alexandre Gabriel & Benjamin Galais, creating ‘”L’Assemblage de l’Amitié” (The Friendship Blend).
Next stop was Scotland – first the Highlands, then Speyside, and finally Edinburgh, where Team Ocho held a masterclass at The Last Word Saloon and attended the Bon Vivant’s 10th birthday party.
We also hosted a number of events during London Cocktail Week — but more on that in the next newsletter!

Shake hard and double strain into a chilled coupette glass. Enjoy with a smile 🙂
Where We’re Drinking this Month
Demon, Wise & Partners in London
Demon, Wise & Partners is a late-night cocktail bar in the City of London, just a short walk from the river. One of our favourite bars; you can always count on creative cocktails and world-class hospitality .
This month, we’re especially enjoying their Flamingo cocktail (pictured above): Ocho blanco, Campari-grapefruit soda & a salt flake rim.
Until next month, stay well & sipping good tequila,
