Mordedura de Serpiente (Snake Bite) has remained one of the most wanted tequilas among enthusiasts for decades and for good reason. This small-batch brand has been crushing its proprietary agave using a traditional hand-cranked tahona (stone wheel) since it’s inception in 1947. But the agave crushing process isn’t the only part of production that is handwork as literally every single step of making this 110 proof tequila made in Mexico’s Jaliscan Highlands is done by hand. The fact that there is nothing modern about the production process and batches are made exclusively in very low quantities makes for a truly unique tequila, unlike any other tequila you’ve ever experienced. Mordedura de Serpiente is only sold direct and by the bottle at their family compound and isn’t sold online or otherwise exported, so scarcity is a big reason why it is so coveted by hardcore tequila fans and has developed a cult-like following among bartenders and aficionados alike. While you may never see one of these rare tequilas in your lifetime, you can at least get the t-shirt.
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Next Level 3900 Premium Women’s tees, aka ‘the boyfriend tee, one of the softest, best-wearing women’s t-shirts available today. We utilize state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it both comfortable and flattering while the feminine fit and shorter sleeves add a special touch to this classic missy cut tee.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. The Next Level 3900 is a fitted women’s t-shirt, so if you are looking for a roomier fit, we suggest going up a size or with the unisex Bella + Canvas 3001 we print our men’s t-shirts on as they are the same super soft ring-spun cotton that feels like an old favorite. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
*Heather colors are 90% ring-spun cotton and 10% poly. **Due to the nature of the printing process and different sizes of shirts offered, imprint position and scale may vary slightly from the product images, but we do our best to be as accurate as possible.
