SAN FRANCISCO (September 30, 2013) – For coffee and tequila fanatics looking to shake up the mundane, it’s time to dance with the Diablo. Rolling out in select markets this fall, Cabo DiabloTM features a coffee punch coupled with an unmistakable tequila kick in this newest extension from the infamous Cabo Wabo® Tequila. Enjoyed best in chilled shots, unquestionably smooth Cabo Diablo is enticing, unpredictable and rebellious – a devilish mix perfect for any Halloween celebration.
Cabo Diablo delivers delectable sweetness and a silky body with notes of rich roasted coffee, vanilla and chocolate thanks to its coffee liqueur base made with the highest quality Arabica beans. That is accompanied by a burst of 100% blue weber agave Cabo Wabo Blanco Tequila that takes your taste buds to new heights, crackling with sweet notes of blue agave, honey and pepper.
“Cabo Wabo Tequila was founded by famed rebel rocker Sammy Hagar so we wanted to make sure we captured his devilish, no-holds-barred, fun-loving attitude in Cabo Diablo,” said Kathleen Schuart, Senior Marketing Director, Campari America. “With Cabo Diablo we take the popular coffee liqueur category and body slam it with a kick of our gold medal-winning blanco tequila that will make all other shots pale in comparison.”
As surprising as the deliciously smooth liquid itself, Cabo Diablo sports a unique color-changing label with a devilish surprise appearing only when the bottle is chilled. The 35% ABV Cabo Diablo is currently available in limited release in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Wisconsin in 750mL ($22.99).
