Dwayne Johnson Talks about His Tequila Brand Teremana in Moving Video Ahead of Its Launch

As the founder of his own tequila brand, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson shared what it means to him having reached the stage of bottling the product after years of preparation. 

Dwayne Johnson "can't wait" to raise a glass of Teremana tequila with all his fans after the years it took to get to the finished product. 

Proud of the accomplishment, it's also one he takes seriously. With an emphasis on sustainability, the agave plants took years to mature in their "proud Mexican town" up high in the Jalisco mountains.

With an aptly chosen name, Tera is derived from "Terre" means earth, while Mana represents the Polynesian spirit that leads their way.

"You know, when I come out here to our agave fields, and I spend some time, my gratitude is boundless," Dwayne said in a video update about their achievement.

The name is official: Ladies and gents, I proudly bring you, TEREMANA TEQUILA 🥃 TERA is meant to represent “Terre” which means of the earth and MANA is our powerful Polynesian spirit that guides us. Spirit of the earth. Our goal is to create a tequila that is the best of quality and taste, but done the right way - by hand. Small batch, hand crafted tequila from our Teremana blue agave, maturing in the highlands of Jalisco, for everyone to enjoy. After years of hard work, this blessing is truly a dream come true - but it’s just the beginning and there’s much work to be done. I’m committed with my team to bring you the best tequila, because quality and legacy are what matter most. From all of us here at Distilleria’ Teremana, we invite you to COME HAVE A DRINK. The tequila of the people. #TEREMANA #tequila #ItsAlmostReady #Q12020 @hhgarcia41 📸

Even though stock will be hitting restaurants and stores next month, Oprah Winfrey, who is a known lover of tequila, already has her own bottle as an early birthday present.

Dwayne appeared as a guest on Oprah's 2020 Visions Tour when she stopped over in Atlanta in January, and after their talk, the "Jumanji" actor had the very first bottle brought out her as a gift.

In tribute to Dwayne's father Rocky Johnson who passed away at the age of 75 on January 15, the pair shared a toast to the man who made Dwayne who he is today, while Oprah said:

"May your relationship with him in the beyond be stronger and bring you all the love you’ve always deserved."

I love you. You broke color barriers, became a ring legend and trail blazed your way thru this world. I was the boy sitting in the seats, watching and adoring you, my hero from afar. The boy you raised to always be proud of our cultures and proud of who and what I am. The boy you raised with the toughest of love. The intense work. The hard hand. The adoring boy who wanted to know only your best qualities. Who then grew to become a man realizing you had other deeply complicated sides that needed to be held and understood. Son to father. Man to man. That’s when my adoration turned to respect. And my empathy turned to gratitude. Grateful that you gave me life. Grateful you gave me life’s invaluable lessons. Dad, I wish I had one more shot to tell you, I love you, before you crossed over to the other side. But you were ripped away from me so fast without warning. Gone in an instant and no coming back. Im in pain. But we both know it’s just pain and it’ll pass. Now I’ll carry your mana and work ethic with me, as it’s time to move on because I have my family to feed and work to accomplish. Finally, I want you to rest your trailblazing soul, Soulman. Pain free, regret free, satisfied and at ease. You lived a very full, very hard, barrier breaking life and left it all in the ring. I love you dad and I’ll always be your proud and grateful son. Go rest high. #ripsoulman #rockyjohnson 🐐

The 47-year-old's acting career has also been keeping him busy as of late. "Jumanji: The Next Level" came out early this year, and Walt Disney Studios just dropped the official trailer to his next film, "Jungle Cruise," set for release in July.

Starring alongside Emily Blunt and Jesse Plemons, Dwayne plays the role of Frank, a charismatic riverboat captain who takes a group of travelers through a Disneyland inspired theme park ride. 

Since there is always a catch, their journey is filled with dangerous animals and situations with a supernatural element as they embark on a research mission.

Already busy with another upcoming film called "Red Notice," Dwayne Johnson shared the first day of shooting with his fans only a few days after his father's passing.

The new Netflix film also stars Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds, and it centers around an Interpol agent as he goes after the world's most wanted art thief.
