Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has poked fun at George Clooney after claiming his Teremana Tequila outsold Clooney’s Casamigos by 830,000 cases.
The open humiliation, which followed news of Teremana selling a million cases in the last 12 months, saw Johnson post the statistics on his Instagram page, goading Clooney and making a direct comparison.
Johnson wrote: “The context below ⬇️ of our @teremana sales & growth compared to Casamigos is pretty staggering / Thank you all so much – my Mana Ohana- for trusting and enjoying our tequila. / We have so much work ahead of us here in the US + globally as we internationalize our tequila brand.”
Johnson added: “No short cuts. Old school way. Quality. Taste. Price. Respect.”
Teremana, which is owned by Mast-Jagermeister, is due to see a big boost in presence following its owning company recently revealing the next stage of its roll-out plans which begin in the US before hitting the UK and the rest of the world.
Last year, Clooney’s Casamigos Tequila was named the fastest-growing spirit brand of 2022, after nearly tripling its brand value from the year prior.
