Tequila Ocho co-founder and master distiller is the legendary Carlos Camarena, a 5th generation agave farmer and 3rd generation tequilero. In fact, it was his great-grandfather who was credited with bringing blue agave to the Highlands of Jalisco, an incredible feat for tequileros in Mexico. Carlos’ trade by nature is agronomy, so he knows the land better than anyone. His passion for family, the land and agave has allowed him to flourish into one of the most respected tequila makers in the world.
Tomas Estes was a bar and restaurant owner for over 45 years, having founded the Pacifico Group in 1976. During that time, Tomas also worked to promote tequila, agave spirits and Mexican culture in Europe and across the world, and as a result was named the official Tequila Ambassador to Europe by the Mexican National Tequila Chamber. In 2012 he published a seminal book on tequila, “The Tequila Ambassador,” widely viewed at that time as the definitive work on the subject of tequila. He received Lifetime Achievement awards from CLASS, Theme, FIBAR and the ISC, among others. Tomas exuded love and respect in all that he did, and his passion for tequila shone brightly. He is deeply missed by all of our team and by many around the world.
From the finest, overripe agaves comes the finest quality tequila from the Highlands of Jalisco. Our single field estate grown agaves are looked after carefully by the Camarena family. From the fields to your glass, the agave brings with it the essence of the rancho from which it grew. This is terroir - a sense of time and place. Tequila Ocho’s Plata delivers maximum agave. Tequila Ocho Plata is the gold standard for silver tequila and one of the purest expressions of agave spirits you’re likely to find. An aromatic, peppery, and uniquely floral profile means it’s best appreciated sipped neat or over large ice cubes, though it also shines in cocktails.
Tasting Notes: Bright, floral, and acidic with mild salinity; notes of lavender, chamomile, jalapeños, white peach, honeysuckle, and rose petals
