Sammy Hagar and Guy Fieri Introduce Santo Fino Blanco Tequila and Los Santo Partnership

 

Sammy Hagar and Guy Fieri Introduce
Santo Fino Blanco Tequila and Los Santo Partnership

 

Legendary rocker and spirits pioneer, Sammy Hagar, has joined forces with acclaimed Emmy Award winning chef and restaurateur, Guy Fieri, to create a new tequila: Santo Fino Blanco. Launching in May, Santo Fino Blanco is the second spirit in the Los Santo family, joining Santo Puro Mezquila, the world’s first and only blend of tequila and mezcal.

 

“Guy has always been a tequila lover and when he approached me about creating a tequila together it was perfect timing,” said Hagar. Sammy and Juan Eduardo Nuñez, the third-generation master distiller that originally worked with him to make his Cabo Wabo Tequila and later Santo Puro Mezquila, had just begun discussions on a new blanco tequila. “Guy and I shook hands and a few months later we were sipping the most amazing blanco tequila we’d ever tasted.”

 

Santo Fino Blanco reintroduces Hagar into the tequila market after being known as one of the first celebrities to produce and launch a self-made spirit, Cabo Wabo Tequila, nearly 10 years ago. Longtime friends, Fieri and Hagar are now partners in Los Santo with the creation of Santo Fino Blanco.

 

“There are a few things I know,” said Fieri. “Great food, killer drinks and wild times…and Sammy and I are makin’ it all happen with Los Santo.”

 

Santo Fino Blanco is an “old world” style tequila made with 100 percent Blue Weber Agave. Nuñez hand-selects the agave plants in the famed Jalisco Highlands of Mexico and creates proprietary recipes at the historic El Viejito Distillery, which was founded in 1937 and awarded Mexico’s National Quality Award.

 

In addition to his world-famous Cabo Wabo brand, which includes Cabo Wabo Tequila and Cabo Wabo Cantina, Hagar is the founder of Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum and the Sammy’s Beach Bar & Grill restaurant chain.

 

Fieri is as well-known for his popular shows on Food Network including “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” and “Grocery Games,” as he is for his discerning palate and portfolio of more than 70 restaurants, including Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen + Bar and El Burro Borracho in Las Vegas.

 

About Los Santo:

A partnership between Sammy Hagar and Guy Fieri, Los Santo introduced the world’s first mezquila, Santo Puro Mezquila, in early 2017. Santo Puro consists of premium tequila made from 100% Blue Weber Agave and artisanal mezcal handcrafted from Espadin Agave. Hagar and a group of friends got together in Cabo San Lucas for a weekend of great food and tequila, where the idea of blending tequila and mezcal was born.  Hagar described it as taste revelation: “A Higher Spirit.” With the help of third-generation Juan Eduardo Nunez, the master distiller from the famed distillery El Viejito, the collaboration produced the world’s first mezquila, Santo Puro Mezquila.  Hagar and Fieri again partnered with Nunez to create Santo Fino Blanco Tequila, an “old world” style tequila. Launching this spring, Santo Fino Blanco is handcrafted from 100 percent Blue Weber Agave from the Jalisco Highlands of Mexico.

Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar to Sizzle on the Las Vegas Strip

Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar to Sizzle on the Las Vegas Strip
Fieri’s First Las Vegas Restaurant Set to Open Late April

Chef, restaurateur, New York Times Best-Selling author and Emmy Award-winning TV host Guy Fieri is proud to announce his first Las Vegas restaurant, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar, to premiere center Strip at The Quad Resort & Casino in late April. The restaurant will offer guests a taste of Fieri’s signature cuisine featuring bold flavors and unique twists on traditional dishes.

“Opening a restaurant in Las Vegas has been a great dream of mine and being in the heart of the Strip makes this restaurant that much more awesome,” said Fieri. “Most people come to Las Vegas with one goal – to have a good time – and I get the chance to offer really delicious, creative and unique food at the epi-center of fun; I see it as the perfect match.”

Open for brunch, lunch, dinner and late night dining, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar will feature a delicious blend of casual foods including an extensive variety of burgers, wings, tacos, small bites and shareable food items.

“Guy Fieri brings a fresh perspective to the Las Vegas dining scene,” said Regional President and General Manager, Eileen Moore. “Fieri’s deep roots with UNLV and the local community expand the unique culinary experience to a Strip-side location full of energy, fun, and a carefully orchestrated food and drink menu.”

Fieri’s menu will feature the simple freshness of a Mexican street taco, blended with the exotic zest of a Vietnamese sandwich creating his signature Bahn Mi Tacos. Crispy baguette taco shells, firecracker pulled pork, fresh cilantro, pickled carrots, shaved jalapenos and sweet chili mayo come together with a spicy Sriracha dip to create the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

Patrons will also be able to feast on Guy’s award-winning signature burgers with all the fixins. After all, it wouldn’t be Guy’s kitchen without a burger complete with Super Melty Cheese topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles. The menu showcases five burgers including Guy’s 2013 Burger Bash Award-Winning, Bacon Mac-N-Cheese Burger. Built with crispy applewood bacon, the four cheese mac-n-cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle and super-melty cheese is sandwiched between a garlic butter toasted brioche bun.

Fieri’s signature Vegas Fries, a tribute to his college days at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) will be featured with a local spin on the favorite. The sidewinder cut fries are carefully tossed in buffalo seasoning and wing sauce, topped with shaved blue cheese, celery, carrots, and accompanied by the blue-sabi dipping sauce.

The restaurant’s extensive drink menu will feature 16 craft beers, in addition to the Sonoma County wine selection and a frozen tap system shot bar that will create a one-of-a-kind experience for guests. Instead of having shots strained or mixed with ice, which then run the risk of getting diluted, the frozen tap system bar will dispense eight different shots straight out of iced dispensers.


“Through Guy’s travels, his understanding of what people love has created a new level of flavor, filled with diverse ingredients that will elevate the casual dining scene in Las Vegas,” said Regional Vice President of Food and Beverage, Jeffrey Frederick. “Just like a great DJ ‘mashes’ music genres to bring excitement to the ear, Fieri’s cuisine mashup of regional specialties creates mind-blowing flavors for the palate.”

The 6,500 square foot space will feature a large outdoor patio and dining area to seat 200 patrons who will be able to enjoy the panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip. The cooking space will encompass a metal, tile, and wood theme that closely resembles Fieri’s kitchen at home. Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar will feature an open design with wood and steel elements along with repurposed materials.

Fieri’s tattoos will be incorporated as part of the design elements throughout the restaurant and bar, and memorabilia from his alma mater, UNLV will be featured throughout the venue.

The restaurant is adjacent to the popular Carnaval Court and The Quad’s main entrance.

This dynamic partnership is just another example of the new restaurant, bar and lounge projects that are currently re-shaping many Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas resorts.

About Guy Fieri
Guy Fieri, chef, restaurateur, New York Times Best-Selling author and Emmy Award-winning host began his love affair with food at the age of ten, selling soft pretzels from a three-wheeled bicycle cart he built with his father called “The Awesome Pretzel.” By selling pretzels and washing dishes, Guy earned enough money in six years to study abroad as an exchange student in Chantilly, France. There he gained a profound appreciation for international cuisine and the lifestyle associated with it. In 1996, Guy launched his culinary career with the opening of Johnny Garlics, his first restaurant based in his hometown of Santa Rosa, CA with business partner Steve Gruber. Since the opening of the first Johnny Garlics, Guy has gone on to create a culinary empire as a popular TV host, chef of seven acclaimed restaurants and New York Times Best-Selling cookbook author. In 2006, Guy Fieri premiered his first show, Guy’s Big Bite on Food Network. Today, this “Culinary Rock Star” also hosts top-rated shows including Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Guy’s Grocery Games and guest judges on Next Food Network Star. Guy also collaborates with Rachael Ray in the star studded competition series, Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off and Rachael vs. Guy: Kids. Guy attended University of Nevada, Las Vegas where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management. Fieri, most recently, was awarded an honorary doctorate from UNLV for his public service and commitment to the university.
