OCHO 2017 Reposado - Los Nopales 40%
Tequila 100% Agave, Mexico / Jalisco, 50cl, Ref: 1891F
The rancho Los Nopales, located at 2070 meters above the sea level belongs to Carlos Camarena's grand father’s: Don Felipe Camarena. Surrounded by agaves's plantations, the East side also shelters pricky pear trees, reason why it was named nopales in spanish. The Blue agaves are aged between 6 to 9 month old when harvested. It is the first time in over 35 years that the land is used for agave's culture.

- The brand
Produced by the third generation of a family of tequileros, Tequila Ocho is one of the few tequilas to be produced slowly and according to traditional methods. It is the first tequila to indicate its year of production and the exact field in which its agaves are grown. Each lot comes from a different field, or “Rancho”, which has its own region-specific characteristics, because its producers have for a long time been aware that the land has a significant influence on the agave, in the same way that grapes have a strong influence on their wines. The result is a supremely high-quality spirit that showcases the special agave flavour that is unique to tequila.
