Produced by the Camarena family in conjunction with Tomas Estes (Cafe Pacifico, La Perla), aged gently for 2 months for a nutty soft vanilla flavour.
Aroma: delicate, soft, vanilla
Palate: fine almond, vanilla with slight cinnamon notes, vegetal, very little evidence of oak or woodiness, chewy, warm mouth-feel and a long subtle finish
Region: Jalisco (Los Altos), single estate
Age of agave when harvested: they harvest the agaves at 7- 10 years, when they are over ripe and full of sugars and acids for concentrated complex flavours
Oven type: slow cooking in brick ovens
Extraction method: mechanical roller
Fermentation: Fermentation takes place in small (3,000 litre capacity) wooden pine vats made. Proprietary, indigenous, natural yeast is used. The open vats allow airborne yeast and bacteria to freely mix with the must. Fermentation lasts between 4-5 days (96-120 hours), depending on the weather.
Still type: double distilled in steel first and then copper
Aging: aged for 2 months in 200 liter American Oak barrels, previously used for ageing American Whiskey. Tequila Ocho uses barrels of many previous fillings -which have become ‘neutralized’- for the minimum time allowed by law to retain as much agave essence as possible.
