Agave Cocina Brings its own Tequila to the Northwest
June 17, 2013

Issaquah, WA – In April 2013, Federico Ramos, co-owner of Agave Restaurants, led a team to Casa Herradura in the heart of Mexico’s tequila region to select just one barrel. The tequila they chose was to be the basis for a unique, limited-edition tequila made only for Agave Restaurants.

After aging the chosen tequila in a new oak cask, Herradura representatives will be bringing the Agave tequila to Agave for its debut. Agave will receive 240 numbered and dated bottles of the hand-crafted double reposado tequila, and the finished barrel for display.

Agave will be one of the few restaurants in the area to have its own tequila. It will be available only at the Agave Cocina restaurants in Issaquah and Redmond.

The Ramos family has owned restaurants on the Eastside for many years; however they have their origins in the heart of tequila country, Jalisco, MX. Bringing a new tequila that reflects the taste and spirit of Agave to the Northwest represents a return to their roots and the opportunity to share the richness of tequila culture here in the Northwest.
