Why we love Tequila Ocho Añejo
Los Patos: This ranch is adjacent to a pond where ducks, “Los Patos” stop off on their north-south migrations. It is about 10 km west of the town of Jesus Maria in the direction of Mexico City.

At harvest, the agaves were 7 years old and the average sugar content was 26.29%.

A WINNING PARTNERSHIP
Tequila Ocho is made by Carlos Camarena, a third generation Tequilero, in partnership with Tomas Estes. This dynamic partnership delivers heritage and tradition, coupled with innovation. Carlos and Tomas produce tequila that is made slowly in an artisanal way. The result is a fine quality spirit that accentuates the agave flavour. It is concentrated and complex while remaining balanced and easy to drink.
Tequila Ocho demonstrates that “terroir” exists in agave. Ocho’s single estates show through their distinct aroma and character. Tequila Ocho opens up and develops in the glass the same way a fine wine does.
Ocho is the first tequila to designate both the year it was produced and the precise field from which the agave was harvested as is done with fine wines. Each estate, or “rancho” produces a limited amount of agave, each vintage of Ocho is both rare and collectable.
