An estate-grown, 100% Blue Agave Tequila range, Ocho is produced as a collaboration between Tomas Estes (the man credited with bringing the ﬁrst bottle of Tequila to Europe) and renowned distillers, the Camarena family. What's really unique about Ocho is that it bears the ﬁrst ever 'Tequila vintage'. This 'Vintage' signiﬁes the exact year of harvest and location of the Agave plants that the spirit was derived from, under-lining the ﬁnely balanced relationship between the terroir and quality of raw materials. Ocho Anejo is aged for at least one year for unparalleled smoothness and complexity which mark a truly great sipping Tequila.
Most Tequilas are distilled for consistency, Ocho Single Estate Vintages will showcase complex nuances in nose and flavor year to year for each of their Tequilas. 'Single Estate' means all of the Agave are harvested from a single field, which bear the personality of the soil and climate. Each vintage will produce a limited number of bottles from a separate estate.
2010 Anejo – Estate: San Augustin
The 2010 Anejo agave was harvested from our “San Augustin” estate. At an altitude of 2,074 meters, the estate is hilly and has deep red soil. San Augustin is the birthplace of Don Felipe Camerena I, grandfather to the artisans who crafted this tequila.
2009 Anejo – Estate: Carrizal
The 2009 Anejo agave was harvested from our "Carrizal" estate named "La Langacha" (The Strip) because it is long and thin. It sits at 1,978 meters above sea level, two miles from the village of Arandas. It is notorious for intensely sweet agave.
2007 Anejo – Estate: El Vergel
The 2007 Anejo agave was harvested from our “El Vergel” Estate, which sits at 1,880 meters above sea level, is slightly hilly and East oriented so it gets the early sunlight. The average weight of the piñas from this field was 87 pounds and the sugar content was 26.7%, consistent with the region’s average.
