Four Seasons Resort and Residences Los Cabos at Costa Palmas Debuts Agave Program That Introduces Guests to a World of Agave Beyond Tequila and Mezcal
Four Seasons Resort and Residences Los Cabos at Costa Palmas today announced the debut of Agave Passport, a beverage program designed by in-house Agave Master Ricardo Robles that invites guests to experience agave-based spirits in its many forms. In addition to tequila and mezcal, the program features lesser-known agave liquors including sotol, bacanora and raicilla.
A native of Mexico, Robles is one of approximately two dozen Agave Masters in the world. He holds degrees with the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico, University of the Caribbean/Association of Tequiliers of the Caribbean, Tequila Regulatory Council and the National Chamber of the Tequila Industry, and has met with agave producers in more than half of Mexico’s 32 states, and counting.
“Agave is a window into the ancestral cultures of this country. It carries a heritage of wisdom and connects us to the indigenous people of Mexico,” says Robles. “We are most known for tequila and mezcal, but when it comes to agave there is so much more.”
His program at the award-winning Resort features agave-based cocktails at the beachfront restaurant and lounge Casa de Brasa, which offers an approachable introduction to agave’s best-known spirits, tequila and mezcal, as well as sotol, bacanora and raicilla.
- Güe Nisa - Mezcal Union, Damiana, Lemon Juice, Pineapple Juice, Cucumber

Guests interested in a more immersive agave education and tasting experience may book private appointments with Robles. The 90-minute journey into agave includes the cultural, historical and geographical background surrounding each spirit alongside the flight that features tequila, mezcal, sotol, bacanora and raicilla.
Private appointments may be arranged to occur at any of the Resort’s dining outlets, in suite or residence, or woven into private beachfront dining by contacting a member of the Concierge team at email@example.com.
