CRT Drops Ball, Campari Keeps Cabo Wabo

Cabo Wabo Moved to Brown-Forman?

When we downloaded the 28 April NOM List from the CRT to update the Tequila Aficionado NOM List, we were shocked to find that Cabo Wabo Tequila had moved from Campari to Brown-Forman.  Naturally, we needed to discuss the state of affairs with other aficionados.  Luckily, Campari was on the ball.

 

 

crtJust a Mixup at the CRT

Great news!  We have it on excellent authority that Cabo Wabo has not moved.  Hopefully, the CRT will make the appropriate corrections soon.

 

Direct from Campari

Following is the letter I received today from Caitlin Crisan, the Public Relations Manager for Campari:

Hi Lisa,

I saw your post yesterday on the NOM issue with Cabo Wabo Tequila. I assure you this was a mistake and the brand is still very much with Campari America.
