Ocho co-founder and master distiller is the legendary Carlos Camarena, a 5th generation agave farmer and 3rd generation tequilero. In fact, it was his great-grandfather who was credited with bringing blue agave to the Highlands of Jalisco, an incredible feat for tequileros in Mexico. Carlos’ trade by nature is agronomy, so he knows the land better than anyone. His passion for family, the land and agave has allowed him to flourish into one of the most respected tequila makers in the world.
Tomas Estes was a bar and restaurant owner for over 45 years, having founded the Pacifico Group in 1976. During that time, Tomas also worked to promote tequila, agave spirits and Mexican culture in Europe and across the world, and as a result was named the official Tequila Ambassador to Europe by the Mexican National Tequila Chamber. In 2012 he published a seminal book on tequila, “The Tequila Ambassador,” widely viewed at that time as the definitive work on the subject of tequila. He received Lifetime Achievement awards from CLASS, Theme, FIBAR and the ISC, among others. Tomas exuded love and respect in all that he did, and his passion for tequila shone brightly. He is deeply missed by all of our team and by many around the world.
Carlos has been recognized with numerous awards such as:
A medal for his contribution in the Tequila Industry from the President of Mexico. (2010)
The Distiller of the Year’ award from ‘San Francisco World Spirits Competition’ (2005)
A Gold Star from the World Marketing Organization (2009)
