Tabañero Hot Sauce & Bloody Mary Mix License A Line Of The Walking Dead Inspired Products
BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for its 7th Season Premiere on October 23rd, the AMC hit show The Walking Dead has partnered with everyone's favorite 100% All-Natural & Gluten Free Hot Sauce to bring life back to bland food. With Limited Edition packaging, Tabañero is revamping two of its signature products and giving them a Walking Dead twist. In their recent partnership, AMC's The Walking Dead has licensed its name to Tabañero for its line of hot sauce and bloody mary products.
Last Christmas, Tabañero COO, Danny Vitelli, was searching for a present for his wife who is a The Walking Dead Super Fan and was unable to find the perfect gift. To his dismay, every store was sold out of all show branded products. Intent on getting his super fan wife a gift she would love, one night he was struck with the idea to combine two of her favorite things, The Walking Dead and Tabañero Hot Sauce, to make a limited edition item. It was a long shot, but Vitelli was determined to make it happen.
What started off as a fun idea, has finally become a reality with this partnership," said Vitelli. "Our industry is fueled by hot sauce fanatics much like AMC's The Walking Dead is fueled by their fan base. We're thrilled to be able to offer a line of quality products that are sure to bring bland food back to life while celebrating an iconic entertainment brand."
Available for pre-sale on Tabanero.com and officially in stock this November, Tabañero's Walking Dead Hot Sauce and Bloodiest Mary Mix are perfect for those who are dying for all-natural flavor. The Limited Edition Bloodiest Mary Mix will have fans of the show screaming for the amazing quality of hand-crafted artisan batches of the finest cocktail mixer ever created. Made with fresh pressed tomatoes, this mix is like no other out there. Paired with vodka, tequila, or savored on it's own, the Bloodiest Mary Mix offers a flavorful cocktail without added preservatives and artificial ingredients.
Along with the Bloodiest Mary Mix comes a Tri-Pack of Tabañero's flavorful hot sauces in Limited Edition The Walking Dead packaging. Made from a fiery blend of habanero peppers, carrots, onions, and other fresh ingredients, each of the sauces in the pack will add a delicious, zesty flavor to any dish. The Limited Edition The Walking Dead Tri-Pack will include 1 Original Bottle, 1 Extra Hot Bottle, and 1 Agave Sweet & Spicy Bottle.

About Tabañero Hot Sauce:
Released to the market in early 2011 and described as a passion project by co-founder Kevin Peake, who explains how he and his team sold Tabañero out of the back of their cars for the first year. Tabañero Hot Sauce is firmly rooted in its humble beginnings and is committed to giving back a portion of its proceeds to the Tabasco region of Mexico where their journey began. Taking a clue from the Mayans (who occupied the Yucatán Peninsula thousands of years ago and were one of the first civilizations to use peppers to flavor their native cuisine) the Tabañero Hot Sauce team, in 2007, began to utilize the fertile crops of the area to design the first recipe of the future award-winning hot sauce.
Products include: Tabañero Hot Sauce in 5oz, 8oz, and one-gallon sizes. Tabañero has also expanded its product line to include a unique and natural (gluten free) Tabañero Bloody Mary Mix sold in a 32oz bottle. Most recently, the brand has expanded to include an Extra Hot and Agave Sweet & Spicy flavors which are both sold in 8oz. bottles and as part of the Fiesta Tri-Pack, including one bottle of each hot sauce flavor.
Awards include US FOOD "2012 Rookie of the Year"
