Sully Erna is both an endorser and investor for Pura Vida, the first ultra-premium tequila available for under $30. This estate-grown, hand-crafted, triple distilled, 100% blue agave spirit is now available in four types: Silver, Reposado, Añejo, and Extra-Añejo. Mr. Erna has joined a long list of celebrity endorsers for the Texas based Tequila including Billy F. Gibbons (ZZ Top), Charlie Sexton (The Arc Angels), Tom Wood (Indy Car Driver) and Mike Hampton (MLB Player) to name a few.
Sully has taken the tequila shot to a whole new level with the creation of the 8:15 Pura Vida Tequila Shot Time, which is taking the rock world by storm. Fans everywhere are taking a moment at 8:15PM every day, no matter where they are in whatever time zone they happen to be, to raise a toast to the good life with Pura Vida Tequila.
“The idea of 8:15 was derived while traveling the country on the most recent headlining tour of my band, Godsmack,” explains Erna. “Because our stage time was at 8:30pm, my band mates and I, and a few girls from the production office would get together around 8:15 every show day and cheers to a shot of tequila. Eventually every shot was cheered by the words, ‘Happy 8:15!!’”
“We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome such a prestigious guest,” said Spec’s Vice President of Marketing, Lisa Key. “And the product speaks for itself. Mr. Erna’s endorsement of Pura Vida is proof positive (no pun intended) that when it comes to tequila, Texan taste buds can’t be beat.”
