Rita Ora Teams With Female Distiller to Launch Prospero Tequila
Rita Ora is partnering with Conecuh Brands to launch Próspero Tequila, joining the team as a shareholder and Chief Creative Partner.
Próspero Tequila is produced at the Don Roberto Distillery in Jalisco, Mexico, by Stella Anguiano, one of the first female tequila master distillers.
"I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with amazing brands and each time I learn something new about the business side of the industry. With this partnership I wanted to push myself to take on a new role," says Ora. "Being Chief Creative Partner and shareholder has allowed me to invest my time and energy in a new venture, which at its core highlights strong independent women. Working with Stella and visiting the distillery was an amazing experience and affirmed my desire to take on this position within the company. I can’t wait to toast this new partnership with my family, friends, and fans.”
Stella Anguiano echoed Ora’s sentiment of female empowerment, stating, “Behind every successful family is a strong woman who serves as the heart and backbone. Próspero is a tequila that celebrates that. I’m proud to be collaborating on a spirit brand made by women that all women can enjoy.”
Próspero Tequila is available in three varieties: Blanco ($34.99), Reposado ($39.99) and Anejo ($42.99).
Ora follows a line of celebrities who have also launched their own liquor partnerships, including Drake's Virginia Black Whiskey, Diddy's Ciroc and Justin Timberlake's Sauza 901.
