“Ocho Plata, hands down. Ocho is an estate tequila and is a little different every year. I love tasting the difference in the soil every year, but each expression is always clean and smooth. A true desert island bottle for me. Best enjoyed with a dry glass of rosé on the side!” — Graham Courter, bar manager, Main Street Meats, Chattanooga, Tenn.
“Tequila Ocho Extra Anejo was the first high-end tequila that truly changed the way I thought of tequila. You can taste the notes of peaches and apricots balanced with warm baking spices; a level of elegance and complexity that made me appreciate tequila in a whole new light. I’ve always been someone who will shoot tequila (with salt, lime, and dread), but this tequila is truly a treat”.
Thanks to Mazzarie Parker, bar manager of Maypop Restaurant in New Orleans, for the kind words!
