Tequila Festival Ejects JB Wagoners
This weekend, we told you about JB Wagoner and his quest to develop and distribute an American-made tequila. We also told you that that Mr. Wagoner's Ultra Premium 100% Blue Agave Spirits were barred from a tequila festival that was running right in his own back yard.
Not one to be excluded and take it sitting down, Mr. Wagoner put on a festival and tasting of his own in an adjacent Sheraton, and then decided to invite some people from the tequila festival over to make a comparison. Enter the JBW Girlz.
In spite of being officially banned, Skyrocket Distillers decided to send in some of "America's Finest" (aka The JBW Girlz) to attend the show wearing tanktops emblazoned with the "JB Wagoner's Ultra Premium" logo and a fist-full of free raffle tickets. The tickets were for a raffle to be held after the show at the adjacent Sherton Fairplex Hotel bar and were freely given to anyone who asked for one.
The Bottle The Girlz had toured the show for a few hours when, in a panic, the show's producers decided to put an end to the friendly participation by ejecting the ladies from the event by accussing them of solicitation. Once JB got word of what happened, he brought the girls back in to confront the show promoters on their unfair actions. This time, private security along with eight uniformed police officiers escorted Skyrockets' entire crew from the event.
That's what we call tenacity. Get the whole story on the event at JB Wagoners.com
