She quotes Carlos Camarena, master distiller of Jalisco La Alteña distillery, where Tequila Ocho is made: “He says aging is supposed to be like a picture frame, and in this case, the picture is of agave. You don’t want the frame to overtake the picture but to bring out [the] best attributes and highlight them.”Tequila is made from the cooked and fermented sap of the blue Weber agave ( agave tequilana). The agave plants grow on farms and take five to nine years to mature.
