Aged: No age statement
Product of: Mexico
Ocho is an estate-grown, 100% agave tequila, noteworthy for being the first vintage tequila with each release marked with its year of harvest and the name of the field where the agave plants used were harvested.
Unlike other tequilas blended to be consistent from one year to the next, the makers of Ocho are happy for each vintage to have a quite different character.
