Tequila Ocho secured the Chairman’s Trophy for its unaged Plata during the 2020 Ultimate Spirits Challenge. The bottling notched an impressive 96 points out of a possible 100—higher than all other tequilas regardless of category. Judges were taken aback by the liquid’s refined elements of slate, citrus and pepper. Here's what they had to say "Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation - Refreshing aromas of grass, granite, limes, and white pepper are classic and clean. A gentle sweetness opens up the flavors, followed by layers of spice and earthy pineapple core. The minerally backbone stays strong throughout each crisp and bright sip."
