Ocho Tequila Reposado 50cl - La Ladera 2021

'Tequila Ocho is made by Carlos Camarena (brother of Felipe), a third-generation Tequilero, and Tomas Estes, tequila legend and global spirits ambassador. Some would say this is the most dynamic and intense partnership in the tequila world, bringing to life decades of experience and deep understanding and respect for the agave plant, with a truly artisanal approach. 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.

Made with agave from the La Ladera Rancho (the Hillside field) which faces West and has an average 8% slope. This rancho has a total area of 86 acres with an altitude between 2,100 to 2,150 meters above sea level.

The land is a rocky slope with shallow red mineral soil and low to medium fertility. Due to such conditions, the agave plants have relatively low average weight. Nevertheless, the sugar level is high, above 30% of the total weight, due to the stressful conditions in which the plant grows during its full life cycle.

TequilaMatchMaker Rating: 86

Cool Chile Rating: offering great quality and value for a house pour, Don Carlos makes his tequila with care and skill, he makes Tapatío too, you can't go wrong with one of his tequilas. We like this smooth agave driven reposado for sipping and for mellow margaritas. Value: £2.40 per 50ml 

NOM: 1474 / Tequilera Los Alambiques

Aroma: agave, oak, black pepper, citrus, caramel, earthy

Palate: earthy agave, black pepper, roasted almonds, caramel, orange peel, minerals

Maestro Tequilero: Carlos Camerena

Interesting fact: 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.

Region: Arandas, Jalisco (Los Altos), single estate

Age of agave when harvested: they harvest the agaves at 7- 10 years when they are overripe and full of sugars and acids for concentrated complex flavours

Water source: natural spring

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

Ageing: aged for 2 months in 200 litre 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.

ABV: 40%
