Press Release

Come to the Sneak Preview of Agave’s own tequila!

Agave Tequila by Casa Herradura

This Thursday July 25th, enjoy shots of our new tequila for half off or taste it in our famous scratch margarita.

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.
