Cabo Wabo Tequila was brought to life in 1996 on the back roads of Guadalajara -el centro of the state of Jalisco, Mexico. After what seemed like eons of time searching for a tequila of good enough quality to serve at the Cantina and call his own, Sammy Hagar linked with a small Mexican Tequila maker that had been in operation since 1937. Although some of the players have changed since the birth and rise of Cabo Wabo Tequila, it continues to be grown and hand made by a well-established tequila family with deep roots in the tequila fields of Jalisco.
Of course, tequila itself was born well before Cabo Wabo Tequila came along. Legend has it that a thunderbolt was felt loudly over an Agave field. It struck an Agave plant, sending its "heart" (core, "pina") into a flame and spawning aromatic nectar from its gut. The Indians considered this a gift from the Gods, so they drank the mystical juice with fear and reverence. The liquor became essential in ritual ceremonies as it "produced a state of euphoria on the priests, warriors and the wise" and even then the best tequila was kept largely for the exclusive, powerful beings in the know. The Agave plant has been revered for ages as "sacred, mystic, and even divine".
The Mexican government shows its great respect to the Agave plant and to tequila as it closely monitors the process of easing the plant into maturity and placing it in the hands of only those producers that will honor its heritage. With few sanctioned exceptions, no drink obtains the name tequila without coming from Jalisco, home to the town of Tequila and the city of Guadalajara. The blend of geography and human touch are unique to this region, and essential to tequila. Tequila is the cognac and life-blood of this land and has been respected and consumed by the local inhabitants since ancient times.
Cabo Wabo Tequila maintains its smooth, no after-burn flavor by sustaining its respect of the long-standing tequila traditions that made it the drink of choice of the wise and venerated mystics. We do not cut corners like other brands which legally mix up to 49% of fillers and still call their product "tequila" - Cabo Wabo Tequila is nothing less than 100% pure blue weber agave. Join the real, pure trip - drink Cabo Wabo Tequila and party as well as the mystics of the days of yore!
