Ocho was also featured in Forbes’ “The Best Tequila Food Pairings To Try Right Now”


“All Tequila Ochos are single estate, produced in the highlands of Jalisco. ‘Terroir’ is the French term used to describe the natural elements that influence the grapes being grown for wine production. These elements include soil composition, altitude, temperature, and more.” Soglanich says. “Being single estate and using traditional additive-free production methods, elements of each Tequila Ocho release can be attributed to the specific rancho (estate) where the agave was grown. Los Patos ranch is adjacent to a pond where ducks (the los patos) stop on their north­­–south migrations. The Tequila Ocho Los Patos Reposado ($44) carries spicy floral aromas and a taste profile with earthy, fruity, and caramel notes. Pair it with pan-seared sweet chili shrimp. The subtle notes of the reposado pair wonderfully with sweet chili shrimp—for a sweet and spicy combo.”

Big thanks to Nic Soglanich AKA The Tequila Wanderer for including Ocho!

Ocho featured in Forbes’ “18 of the Best Tequilas to Try Right Now”

“Carlos Camerena and Tomas Estes make up the genius team behind Tequila Ocho,” Bailon says. “For those who approach agave as they do wine, this is the must-try brand. They feature single terroir agave in such a sincere way, switching plots every batch. Although I love the hints of macadamia nut in the 2019 El Bajío, I really fell in love with the Las Pomez. It’s the tropical fruit and pomelo combination that hooked me on this specific brand which carried into what I love about this brand as a whole. It brings back respect to the roots.”

Thanks Janice Bailon for the stellar recommendation!

What We’re Drinking This Month

Wow, this month has been a scorcher (in the Northern hemisphere at least)! We’ve found that sometimes the simplest drinks are also the tastiest. This month we’re drinking Ocho Highballs (AKA Tequila & Sodas). 

50ml of your Tequila Ocho of choice (we prefer Plata/Blanco in our Highballs)
120ml (or to taste) of your favorite soda water (Topo Chico is our go-to)

Add all ingredients to highball glass over cubed ice, stir well and optional garnish of a slime of lime or lemon.
