It is a known fact that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is no stranger to tequila. Whether he is sipping it on a Fast & Furious set or throughout his stint in Ballers, the two have become synonymous with each other. It will not come as a huge surprise that the former WWE star and now the blockbuster hero has launched his own tequila brand, Teremana.
Translating to ‘Spirit of the Land’, Teremana puts the people and the land first when it comes to their intricate production process and brand. With a goal to create high quality, responsibly sourced tequila that brings people together. We expect many conversations, jokes and special moments to take place with Teremana involved.
The beauty of The Rock’s new Tequila really comes in the process of production and the level of care that is taken at every step to provide the highest quality to us, the workers and the land that holds the important agave plant.
Every bottle of Teremana starts its journey in a small Mexican town within the Jalisco highlands. Teremana prides itself on using local business and resources to help the sustainability of their products and support the local economy. Traditional, experienced jimadores farm the agave plants to perfection, getting the most out of them whilst repurposing any waste into fertiliser.
The harvested agave is then brick-oven roasted for 3 days to allow a natural process to occur and bring out the bright citrus flavours that Teremana boasts throughout its range.
The agave is then shredded to release the all-important juices that need fermenting.
Once fermented, Teremana distils their tequila in handmade copper stills. An ode to the traditional methods of creating tequila, all the stills at the Teremana distillery were locally designed and made. You can expect a clean, smooth taste in every sip.
The Reposado iteration is sent one step further to be aged in former bourbon barrels giving it a sweeter taste and a unique colouring too.
If that wasn’t enough to entice you, there’s more! Scroll down for three must-try Teremana recipes. Pre-order your bottle here and be the first to enjoy Teremana in the UK!
