So unique is Tequila Ocho, that each year the release is bottled under a different name. This is the 2018 El Bajio release with fantastic reviews by the most acclaimed aficionados. Read full description below...

Ocho blanco tequila is an unaged expression of tequila that honours the noble agaves of Arandas and the Camarena "ranchos". It is intense, lively and clean and is only ever made with only 100% blue weber agave. There are no additives in Ocho blanco tequila.

Ocho blanco is the result of un-paralleled attention to detail in every step of the production process. Over-ripe agaves are hand selected from single estate plantations which gives the master distiller, Carlos Camarena, full control over the aroma and flavour profile of the end product. The results speak for themselves.

AROMA: Sweet agave, citrus, minerals, mint and grass
TASTE: Cooked agave with earth, white pepper, floral and mint flavours. Flavour is very herbal and the body is fairly oily. Finish : Medium long with emphasis on agave and more earth notes.
BARREL: Unaged
ENJOY: For those looking for a different Anejo that isn't all barrel

Tomas Estes

Tomas Estes has a love of Mexico and its culture, especially Agave spirits. When Carlos Camarena asked him to make tequila together there was only one answer: affirmative. 

Tequila Ocho is a joint partnership between the Camarenas and Tomas Estes. Estes has been selling and promoting tequila in his Mexican bars and restaurants since 1976, and has gained recognition and respect throughout the worldwide bar and spirits community for his work promoting tequila, agave spirits and Mexican culture in Europe. He can often be found as a guest speaker, talking about the taste profiles and production processes of hand-crafted tequilas to educational groups and connoisseurs. Ocho is a meeting of the passion, experience, and knowledge between Estes and the Camarena family, resulting in the finest tequila possible.

Carlos Camarena

Carlos Camarena a third generation tequilero is The Master Distiller of Tequila Ocho made at La Alteña distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. He is among the most respected tequila producers because of the fine products that he makes. He has been recognized with numerous awards such as:

  •  A medal for his contribution in the Tequila Industry from the President of Mexico. (2010)
  • The Distiller of the Year’ award from ‘San Francisco World Spirits Competition’ (2005)
  • A Gold Star from the World Marketing Organization (2009)

In collaboration with Tomas Estes, he created Ocho and his distillery also makes Tapatio and El Tesoro tequilas.

Camarena family

The Tequila Ocho story begins with the Camarena family, who started making tequila in 1937 and are now in their third generation as tequila producers. This family is one of the few that still make tequila in the slow, artisanal way. With the Camarenas nothing is rushed or hurried during the whole process, from the growth of the agave to the final distillation.

All tequila made by the Camarena family is produced exclusively from agave from their own fields, a fact that few other producers can claim. Because the production is small-batch and carefully done, the heart and passion of the Camarenas’ Mexican soul is in each drop of their tequila. The family have only ever made 100% agave tequila.
