Rachel Marshall Cause of Death

Seattle is having an awful day. On April 24, RACHEL MARSHALL, co-owner of the bars Montana and Nacho Borracho as well as the creator of Rachel’s Ginger Beer, passed away suddenly.

Although it hasn’t been officially determined, it looks that cardiac arrest was the cause of death. In the Licorous kitchen, which they had access to thanks to chef John Sundstrom, Marshall, and her business partner Adam Peters started their ginger beer venture in 2011. She transformed the company into a unique force in Seattle’s food and beverage industry over time.

Allecia Vermillion, writer, and friend of Marshall, wrote the following in an obituary for Seattle Met:

Rachel was a connector, engaging easily in conversation with everyone from CEOs to random customers at her bars. Her curiosity and pragmatism prompted creative solutions that in hindsight were deeply entrepreneurial.

She and [business partner Kate Opatz] were the first in the city to pour cocktails on draft. Later, when she wanted to give customers food without getting into the restaurant business herself, she turned over her kitchen spaces to chefs like Kevin Burzell and Alysson Wilson of Kedai Makan, Taylor Cheney of Yalla, and Mark Fuller’s Ma’ono.

About Rachel Marshall by Allecia Vermillion

Rachel Marshall of Rachel’s Ginger Beer was born and raised in Washington and fell headlong in love with British ginger beer during a stint in Europe.

While living in Germany, Rachel and Adam met. Rachel grew up primarily on Whidbey Island. She also got her inspiration from British-style ginger beer, a refreshing beverage that actually tastes like ginger and lemon.

Before I really got to know her, I recall purchasing cups of it from her booth at the Broadway Farmers Market. Today, Rachel’s Ginger Beer ships to customers across the nation and has four storefront bars: one each on Capitol Hill, in University Village, close to the Spheres, and at Pike Place Market.

With ease, Rachel struck up conversations with CEOs and casual patrons at her bars. She was a connector. She was much more skilled at posing questions to individuals than I was, a real journalist when I used to watch her chit-chat at school gatherings.

Her pragmatism and curiosity led to innovative ideas that, in retrospect, were incredibly entrepreneurial. The first people in the city to pour drinks on draught were she and Opatz.

She later gave up her cooking area to chefs like Kevin Burzell and Alysson Wilson of Kedai Makan, Taylor Cheney of Yalla, and Mark Fuller’s Ma’ono when she wanted to serve customers cuisine without going into the restaurant business herself.

She had a kind spirit, a sharp mind, and big, pliable emotions. I’m writing those things in the past tense, which is absurd.
