Tequila D’Cortés, an ultra-premium tequila brand, emerges as the brainchild of founder and CEO, Roque Cortés. Born and raised in Jalisco, Mexico, the heartland of tequila, Roque’s deep connection to the spirit, rich cultural heritage, and his decade-long experience in the hospitality industry paved the way for the creation of Tequila D’Cortés.
Drawing inspiration from his roots and fueled by the desire to share the authentic spirit of Jalisco with the world, Roque Cortés embarked on an ambitious journey amidst the challenges of a global pandemic. Despite the obstacles, Tequila D’Cortés has emerged as a testament to resilience, adaptability, and commitment to quality.
What sets Tequila D’Cortés apart in the tequila industry is its unwavering dedication to tradition, sustainability, and quality. Crafted through small-batch production methods, the tequilas boast a unique flavor profile, curated to appeal to the discerning palates of tequila enthusiasts and mixology professionals alike.
“Our tequila brand is tailored for high-end cocktail enthusiasts, mixology professionals, and all restaurant, bar, and nightclub owners seeking a distinctive spirit,” says Roque Cortés. “We are crafting not just a drink but an experience that showcases the rich heritage of Jalisco while appealing to the modern palate.”
Tequila D’Cortés has assembled a team of experts, including award-winning Master Distiller Hector Davalos and tequila sommelier Iris Cebreros. The brand’s commitment to authenticity is further bolstered by Roque’s unique dual perspective as a Jalisco native now based in Seattle. This bi-cultural understanding bridges two worlds, bringing a fresh perspective to the tequila industry.
The brand’s success lies in its determination to remain self-funded and autonomous, ensuring full control to protect its authenticity. Tequila D’Cortés envisions becoming an internationally recognized symbol of premium quality, embodying Jalisco’s rich heritage and fostering a sense of community by giving back to the region.
Tequila D’Cortés recently relocated its warehouse to downtown Everett, accommodating its expanding operations and welcoming visitors to a brand new tasting room. Additionally, the brand has partnered with STK Steakhouse, featuring its exceptional tequilas on their prestigious menu.
Roque Cortés emphasizes the importance of networking and collaboration in achieving remarkable accomplishments, even in the face of financial challenges. With Roque’s strategic vision and unwavering passion, Tequila D’Cortés continues to redefine the standards of ultra-premium tequila, aiming to inspire future generations of tequila producers.
Tequila D’Cortés invites tequila enthusiasts and connoisseurs to explore the exquisite world of premium tequila, crafted with meticulous attention to detail and steeped in Jalisco’s rich cultural heritage.
