Description:
It is rare in this industry that a totally new concept is launched, and the legendary Tomas Estes has done just that with an infusion of 100% agave Ocho Blanco tequila with pure cooked agave fibres.

Tomas has always been at the cutting edge of Tequila production and as long ago as the late seventies when he began experimenting by flavouring tequilas with botanical ingredients. Back in those days it was ingredients such as cinnamon, vanilla, coffee beans, dried and fresh chillies which were showcased in his own restaurants.

He called these infusions 'curados' or 'the flavoured ones', curado is also the name given to flavoured pulque in Mexico, the rather unpalatable drink that's made from fermented agave sap. It wasn't until 2009, however, that Tomas began the process of infusing his own Ocho Blanco tequila with natural cooked agave.

Tomas didn't undertake this task on his own and called in Stefano Francavilla, Sophie Decobecq and Charles Vexenat to help. After a lot of mixing and blending the group found a ratio they were happy with, producing a pale golden spirit with a full and complex agave flavour.

Only 460 litres of Curado has been made and London is the first place for it to be released, Tomas explains why:

'It's crazy no one's done Curado before since it's such an obvious winner. We've chosen to do the world-wide launch in London because it is for me the centre of quality enjoyment. We are excited about the new possibilities that Curado creates'.

Producer Information

Ocho, an estate-grown, 100% Blue Agave Tequila range produced as a collaboration between by Tequila aficionado Tomas Estes and renowned distillers, the Camarena family - and the first brand ever to bear a 'Tequila vintage'.
As interest in the category continues to gather pace, Ocho is set to be one of the most exciting Tequila releases to date - not least for the association with Estes, official Tequila Ambassador to the European Union and founder of the Cafe Pacifico group of bar-restaurants.
Not unlike the labelling of fine wines, Ocho's 'Tequila vintage' signifies the exact year or harvest and location of the Agave plants that the spirit was derived from, underlining the finely balanced relationship between the terroir and quality of raw materials.
Ocho Blanco can be traced back to Rancho La Rivera, where the soil is similar to that of the Tequila valley, while for the Reposado, the agave has been harvested from the typically rich brown soil of the Los Altos region of Jalisco -from Rancho El Vergel.
The idea of a 'Tequila vintage' may be new and unique to the category, but the small- batch production methods are age old and artisanal. Ocho Tequila is 100% natural, crafted slowly and with care.
The Ocho brand offers a guarantee of heritage, quality and value. The Blanco and Reposado will be available in 50cl bottles, and will appeal to bars and restaurants looking to offer customers the flavour of traditional and authentic Tequila, backed up by contemporary packaging that handles and pours with ease and comfort.
This is a Tequila range that has a unique story to tell. Not only does the brand name represent the 8th, and final, attempt at the ultimate recipe, the producers themselves are in their 8th decade of Tequila production and 8 years is the average age at which Ocho's Agave is harvested.
While the Blanco is un-aged, giving a ripe and citrusy flavour, Ocho's Reposado has been rested for precisely 8 weeks and 8 days for the unparalleled smoothness and complexity which mark a truly great sipping Tequila.
In a further similarity to fine wine, Ocho Tequila has been found to develop in the glass; releasing subtle nuances of nose and flavour that entice the drinker to keep coming back to experience more and more with every sip.
Tomas Estes comments: 'I have been serving Tequila and Tequila drinks since 1976 in 5 European countries and Australia. Tequila Muestro Numero Ocho [recipe number eight] is both rewarding and satisfying when sipped and savoured straight as well as in a mixed drink or cocktail such as a Margarita.'
