• Plata

    Tequila Ocho Plata is always unaged.

    As with every expression of Tequila Ocho, our Plata changes Rancho every vintage, and as such will be truly expressive of its terroir.

    Carlos allows this particular expression to “feng shui” or rest, open air, in a stainless steel tank for 48-hours. This period allows all of the subtle aromatic and flavor compounds to come together.

    We rest open air for only 48 hours, no longer, as more time will start to lose some of the brighter notes expressed in each vintage.

    Plata is then proofed to 40% ABV and bottled for your enjoyment.

  • Reposado

    Tequila Ocho Reposado is rested for 8 weeks and 8 days, just slightly longer than the minimum standard to qualify as a Reposado.

    Like all aged expressions of Ocho, aging occurs in very neutral and worn barrels.

    These barrels were originally used for American Whiskey, however they have been used for other Tequilas made by Carlos Camarena 7 or 8 times before Ocho is matured in them. In some cases, these barrels are over 25-30 years old.

    This process allows for a subtle addition of oak, still allowing the original terroir of each estate and vintage to shine through.

    After maturation, Reposado is then proofed down to 40% ABV.

  • Añejo

    Tequila Ocho Añejo is Aged for 1 year, the minimum standard to qualify as an Añejo.

    Like all aged expressions of Ocho, aging occurs in very neutral and worn barrels.

    These barrels were originally used for American Whiskey, however they have been used for other Tequilas made by Carlos Camarena 7 or 8 times before Ocho is matured in them. In some cases, these barrels are over 25-30 years old.

    This process allows for a subtle addition of oak, still allowing the original terroir of each estate and vintage to shine through.

    After maturation, Añejo is then proofed down to 40% ABV.

  • Extra Añejo

    Tequila Ocho Extra Añejo is Aged for 3 years, the minimum standard to qualify as an Extra Añejo.

    Like all aged expressions of Ocho, aging occurs in very neutral and worn barrels.

    These barrels were originally used for American Whiskey, however they have been used for other Tequilas made by Carlos Camarena 7 or 8 times before Ocho is matured in them. In some cases, these barrels are over 25-30 years old.

    This process allows for a subtle addition of oak, still allowing the original terroir of each estate and vintage to shine through.

    After maturation, Añejo is then proofed down to 40% ABV.
