Dwayne, “The Rock” Johnson, has proven his versatility as an actor, though not in the drama and romance section. But he convinced his fans that he could transition from a scary wrestler to a hero on the silver screen.
Now that he ventured into the tequila-making industry, will The Rock’s Teremana tequila show versatility and worth? Check out this Teremana Tequila Review!
Everything About Teremana Tequila
Teremana Tequila is in the limelight thanks to its celebrity endorser and founder, Dwayne Johnson. They released their tequila variants in March 2020. They have Blanco, Reposado, and Añejo tequilas that are getting rave reviews from tequila drinkers worldwide.
According to one review, the flavor and texture of this spirit are preferable compared to brands sold twice the price.
Teremana uses traditional methods in creating their Blanco and Reposado tequilas. They use a brick oven to slow-cooking the roasted agave.
The fermented cooked agave is distilled in handmade copper pot stills. The aged tequilas are stored in ex-bourbon barrels to produce the smoothest tequilas.
The key ingredient to The Rock’s tequila is the hand-picked ripe agaves. There are no additives added, only ripe Blue Weber fruit. This makes Teremana good for those on a strict diet as this is certified gluten-free.
Apart from the sweet earth flavors of the cooked ripe piña fruit, you will also find citrus, and the perfect smokiness of wood on the palate. It also has a smooth taste of cinnamon and caramel, influenced by the barrels it was aged in. A bourbon drinker will be able to point out the infused (1) flavors, especially the wonderful vanilla thing that lingers.
The presence of sweet piña touches the nose with a strong blend of wood and earthy smell. There is also a bit of vanilla and notes of citrusy savor, which is similar to the palate.
The Rock’s Tequila Reposado has a pale straw shade lighter than the standard color of aged tequila. Teremana Tequila Reposado has a rich caramel savor that complements its sweetness and silkiness.
Teremana is a solid tequila with a lingering taste of oak and a hint of vanilla with notes of roasted piña finish.
Who Makes It?
Dwayne Johnson is the founder of this spirit, but Destilería Teremana de Agave is responsible for flavorful tequila. The distillery only produced two variants for the brand, the Teremana Blanco and Reposado, when they launched it. But after a year, they finally released their añejo variant.
They are all about utilizing ingredients down to their core. After extracting the juices from the fruits, their leftovers are composted and used as agave fields’ fertilizers. They installed a state-of-the-art water filtration system to recycle water for reuse.
Does Dwane “The Rock” Johnson Really Own It?
Yes, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson owns Teremana Tequila and other people who have the same views on what a tequila brand should be. He worked with the other co-founders, Dany Garcia, Jenna Fagnan, Dany Garcia, Ken Austin, and the Lopez family.
They have already started negotiations with Mast-Jägermeister to increase their reach further worldwide. After all, Teremana Tequila is among the fastest-growing celebrity-endorsed tequila.
