Numero Ocho has released a 2016 vintage Tequila from a single estate in Jalisco. Puerta del Aire, in the region's highlands, is 3km from the La Altena distillery. The agave from the field was harvested at seven years old, with pinas weighing an average of 42kg. 

Tequila Ocho is made by Carlos Camarena, in partnership with Tomas Estes, who is the Tequila ambassador for Europe.

The Tequila comes in Blanco and Reposado variants, both bottled at 40% abv. 

Ocho claims to be the first Tequila to designate both the year it was produced and the field from which the agave was harvested.
