Made with agave from the Cerro Grande rancho (field), located a few kilometres from the mountain range of the same name. In fact, this particular field is the highest altitude of all the ranchos that Ocho harvests its agave from. Ocho designates both the year of production and the precise field from which the agaves are sourced, so each batch takes on different characteristics, making each vintage collectable.
