Please join us for a special dinner at Apis Restaurant featuring Tequila Ocho. They are the first tequila producers to designate vintages for their products as well as the precise field from which the agave was harvested, like a fine wine.
The chefs have crafted a menu of dishes that have never been served at Apis before specifically to highlight the flavor profiles of these fine tequilas, and Bar Manager Chelsea Carter will be curating the cocktail pairings for the evening. This is sure to be a dinner you won't want to miss!

 The "Bat Friendly" agave program was created with the aim of sustaining and enhancing the population and migratory patterns of our agave pollinating friends. Bats feed on the agave's quiote, or flower, and pollinate over 180 species of agave and several other plants throughout Mexico. Tequila producers typically prevent the agave from going to flower, as once the quiote grows, the plant is no longer of use for Tequila production.  Bat Friendly Tequila Producers have agreed to let at least 5% of their agave's flower, allowing the bats to feed on the quiote and do their magic. La Alteña, where Ocho is produced, is one of the first two distilleries to participate in the Bat Friendly Program, and hope to be a catalyst for more producers to take notice and help to sustain Mexico's agave crop for generations to come.  In short, this all comes down to respect for the agave, reverence for the land, and an initiative to protect the future of tequila.
