Made from an agave variety called tequilana weber azul, a noble plant from the lily family, Tequila Ocho is one of the few 100% agave tequilas which is still made in an old fashioned traditional way. Ocho is also the first tequila that embodies the spirit of the 'terroir' hitherto restricted to the world of wines. It is a known fact that the soil composition, altitude, temperature, rainfall, humidity and sunlight of a region yields a tremendous and distinctive influence on the final produce. Ocho explores this concept by distilling tequila from agaves harvested from its single estates such as Rancho El Refugio and El Carrizal. That means each batch produced from a different field or a 'rancho' shows its own distinctive characteristics such as masculine, earthy, peppery or more feminine, softer, fruity or floral.
Ocho is not chill filtered.
Single Estate-Rancho 'El Refugio'
All the agaves used to create this tequila have come from one unique single ranch, in this case, Rancho 'El Refugio'. It is well defined by the natural tree cactus enclosure that surrounds it. Refugio means refuge. Its red oxide earth with many undulating contours gives a variety of agave positions vis-a-vis its total terroir. Shake this with triple sec and lemon juice to make delicious margaritas.
Tasting Notes: The Ocho Blanco Tequila starts with a bouquet of olives, guava, peppermint and elements of fresh nuts before leading to sweet agave, tree bark and hints of ginger. The Blanco finishes with fresh cut grass and sparks of spice.MRP: Rs.5800
