The Story of the Agave Reserve Tequila by Herradura

Press Release

The Story of the Agave Reserve Tequila by Herradura

7-29-2013 – In late August, Agave will present their unique, private blend tequila by Herradura with special events at each restaurant.

For restaurateurs Julian Ramos, Federico Ramos and their sister Faviola Ramos, this event is a landmark in the accomplishment of a long held dream.

It was in 2009 that they acted on the vision they had brought with them from the early days in Mexico by opening a brand new restaurant in the Issaquah Highlands. As a tribute to the plant that is the source of all true tequilas, they named the restaurant Agave. It had a different concept from other Mexican restaurants. The foundation of the idea was to stock a large collection of tequilas and introduce customers to new tequilas that would suit their taste, but broaden their experience with fine tequilas. The tequilas would be complemented by a menu of Mexican inspired food with a contemporary influence.

At the time, there was very little appreciation of fine tequilas and tequila culture here. Four years later, Agave carries 150 unique tequilas. Chosen by Ramos family, these are the tequilas they enjoy and want to share with their customers.

With 150 tequilas in stock, and a following of tequila lovers, they decided it was time they had their own.

A team from Agave traveled to Jalisco to find just the right tequila to represent the Agave palate. At Casa Herradura they tasted three candidates, reposado tequilas still in their original barrels. They chose just the right one and it was put into another barrel for additional aging.  After the Agave team selected just the right barrel, Herradura Master Distillers finished the aging to obtain just the right flavor. This process is the source of designation “double barrel reposado”, aged long enough to be an anejo but recasked during the aging process.

During the third week of August, Agave will debut the double reposado created by the artisans at historic Casa Herradura in Amitatlan, Jalisco, MX. Our gracious hosts from Casa Herradura will be visiting and join us for the festivities.

Schedule

August 20th 4-6 PM – Agave Cocina & Tequilas, Issaquah, WA
Meet representatives from Casa Herradura at a cocktail party at the Issaquah restauraunt.

August 22nd 5-8PM – Agave Cocina & Cantina, Redmond, WA

The Story Behind the Agave Tequila
Early in March 2013, Federico Ramos led his drinking team to Mexican tequila country to choose just the right barrel of tequila. At the Casa Herradura distillery, tequila artisans selected three candidate tequila barrels for the astute tasters to chose from. Federico and team selected an amazing reposado to be recasked as their own. Only one barrel was made and aged to perfection. Just a few days ago, the 240 bottles and the oak barrel arrived from Herradura.

This Thursday, be the first to sneak preview our very own double-barrel reposado.

Agave Cocina Brings its own Tequila to the Northwest

Press Release

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.
