Our story

Born in Mexico, praised in America. That’s Cabo Wabo.

Thick Cut Roots

Sammy Hagar, our founder and an American legend in his own right, was devoted to creating a tequila that would embody his beliefs of living free, working hard and playing harder. A tequila that would celebrate his spiritual stomping ground, Cabo San Lucas, a place without limitations, inhibitions, or boundaries.

The result is an unquestionably Mexican tequila, made with an undeniably American spirit.

Thick Cut Lifestyle

Thick Cut is our outlook and way of life. It’s doing things bigger, bolder and better by tapping into our legendary roots and never forgetting the spirit of freedom behind everything we do.

It’s about going all in on what you love and going all out when you get the chance to have some fun.

Thick Cut Partners

Father-and-son cooks Myron and Michael Mixon work alongside each other as they compete in BBQ competitions across the country on Jack’s Old South Competition BBQ team. Myron Mixon, also known as “The Winningest Man in BBQ” has won over 200 grand championships, hosts his own barbecue school and is the true master of his craft.

Michael has quickly established himself as a nationally respected BBQ expert – manning and mastering the grill and smoker like a true Mixon. Together, they’ve won countless awards and are best known for appearing on the popular TV show BBQ Pitmasters.

Thick Cut Process

It takes skill, know-how and patience to make a Thick Cut tequila. Only Cabo Wabo takes an unapologetic approach to building the boldest possible liquid without sacrificing quality.

We start with only the best piñas to ensure our 100% Blue Weber Agave, super-premium quality and taste.

THE CHOP

The piñas are chopped into four thick cut quarters to be cooked in stainless steel autoclaves.

THE COOK

The heat activates a chemical process that converts carbs into fermentable sugars.

Then we purposefully take a thicker cut of the distillate, allowing more of the “head” and the “tail” to influence the “heart,” which delivers a more unfiltered, raw agave-forward taste.
