Ocho is the first single estate tequila, designed to showcase the agave plant's ability to convey differing flavours from the land. Each vintage is harvested from diverse fields around the Mexican state of Jalisco. The brainchild of Tomas Estes and Carlos Camarena, two much loved and celebrated tequila experts.

Understanding the all-important terroir in grapes, Carlos and Tomas looked to their highland agaves and realised that these incredible plants could carry their heritage just as well as any vineyard. Producing a softer, rounded spirit described as floral, fruity and feminine, their plants were perfect to show the world the taste of Mexican earth.

What's with the name, you ask? Ocho (eight in English) hold an important place within the brand for a multitude of reasons. A few of these are that it takes an average of eight years for agaves to ripen before harvest, eight kilograms of agave to make one litre of Ocho Tequila, and it took eight different samples for Estes and Camarena to find the perfect recipe.

The Current Ocho Reposado is from La Ladera­.

La Ladera (Spanish for “The Hillside”) faces West and has an average 8% slope. This rancho has a total area of 86 acre with an altitude between 2,100 to 2,150 meters above sea level.

The land is a rocky slope with a shallow red mineral soil and low to medium fertility. Due to such conditions, the agave plants have relatively low average weight. Nevertheless, the sugar level is high, above 30% of the total weight, due to the stressful conditions in which the plant grows during its full life cycle.

Nose: Grilled pineapple, black pepper, green notes like celery and peppermint. Green guava, wet soil, and salted caramel.

Palate: Orange peel, earthy notes, black pepper, roasted almonds and very mineral.

Finish: Soft oak, sponge cake, nuts and orange zest.
