No doubt inspired by the massive success of Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Tequila, noted vintner Vince Neil has decided to jump into the tequila-making game as well. The West Roxbury Transcript looked at Neil’s newest sideline with a piece that made frequent references to his status as an “alcohol aficionado”–although to be fair, making wine and tequila is probably more lucrative for Neil than losing the words to his songs in a bottle:
To capitalize on his fondness for drinking, despite having at least one trip to rehab, Neil was at Gary’s Liquors on the VFW Parkway to promote his three types of tequila called Vince Neil’s Tres Rios.
“It’s just good stuff … it’s made down outside of Guadalajara [Mexico],” said Neil of the three types: silver, reposado and anejo. All three types are aged for different durations and different ways.
Neil, an alcohol aficionado, also owns his own vineyard, but this past Friday he was focusing on his latest venture, tequila.
“I like tequila … there’s no worms in these. It’s a fun thing. It’s little bit more rock ‘n’ roll,” said the Motley Crue singer whose band was known for songs such as “Girls, Girls, Girls” “Shout at the Devil” and “Home Sweet Home.”
A little bit more rock and roll, huh? Guess that means it won’t taste like deli meat.
