The Rock hints at nearing Tequila launch
Action hero Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is seemingly moving closer to launching his Mana Tequila brand after posing with batches of spirit on Instagram.
Last year, Johnson applied to register the Mana trademark for his inaugural Tequila brand.
Earlier this month, the actor and retired professional wrestler published an Instagram post that showed him testing batches of blanco, reposado and añejo Tequila.
He said in the post: “Spent all weekend taste testing every batch of my new tequila [sic] fresh out of our barrels from Mexico.
“I’m very passionate about my new tequila we’re developing.
“It’s been years in the making and every road has led here.
“Lot’s of growing excitement.
“Mana, passion, positivity, hard work and fun.
“This ones [sic] for you world, let’s have a drink.”
Johnson will follow a growing line of celebrities who have moved into the Tequila industry, including George Clooney, Justin Timberlake, Diddy, AC/DC and Chris Noth.
Just last week, SB reported that pop star Rita Ora had teamed up with spirits marketing firm Conecuh Brands to launch Próspero Tequila.
