One of the few tequilas still made slowly in the old fashioned way, Tequila Ocho is a fine quality spirit which accentuates that which is exclusive to tequila, the agave flavour.
Ocho is the first tequila to designate both the year it was produced and the precise field from which the family grown agaves were sourced. Each batch comes from a different field or rancho contributing distinctive characteristics of that place.

The agave plant has existed on earth for an estimated 12 million years. Pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican cultures found many uses for the plant: the cooked Piña for food, the dried fibers for rope, clothing and paper, and – perhaps most importantly – the fermented Agave juice (Pulque as it is known in Mexico) as the first alcoholic beverage of the American continent. It is a miraculous plant, full of life, that spends long years maturing under the Mexican sun. Nourished by the earth’s minerals, the plants absorb this energy, which becomes their life essence.
Mexico is home to an abundance of different spirits – Tequila, Mezcal, Raicilla, and many more. These distillates are all products created from this plant, all unique in their flavors and aromas, depending on the type of Agave that is used
