"The new Tarantula 100 series offers consumers the quality of 100 percent blue agave with the strength of 100 proof, for a taste sensation that offers more character and body, and is unexpectedly smooth for 100 proof," said Vic Morrison, Vice President of Marketing at McCormick Distilling, distributors of Tarantula Tequila.
