Stone & Wood release NRB

Stone & Wood has announced the launch of its Northern Rivers Beer (NRB), a lager directly inspired by the region and the community to which it pertains. 

NRB has also earned the title of being Stone & Wood’s most sustainable beer to date. 100% of the hops used and at least 70% of the malt is certified sustainable, sourced from local companies Ryefield Hops and Voyager Malt. 

In addition to this, Stone & Wood will donate $1 to the Ingrained Foundation charity for every 100 litres of beer sold across its portfolio, including NRB. Since 2018, the initiative has seen Stone & Wood donate more than $2.1 million to local grassroots, environmental and social charities, both near and far, via the foundation.

Stone & Wood’s NRB is a crisp and easy drinking lager with a 4% abv and is available nationwide now at $54.99 per 24-pack.

The Rock is bringing his Tequila to Aus

Teremana Tequila, the brand founded by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, will soon be launching in Australia as part of its recently outlined global expansion plan in partnership with Mast-Jägermeister. The plan will see Teremana Tequila launch in the international markets of Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, the United Arab Emirates and Colombia, along with in various travel retail outlets, marking its first foray outside of the US. 

Since launching in March 2020, The rapid growth of The Rock’s tequila brand has broken various records, including becoming the fastest premium spirits brand to sell one million 9-litre cases to the US market within a 12-month period. 

“I’m incredibly humbled by the demand for Teremana at the global level and thrilled to deliver Teremana to consumers around the world,” said Johnson.

“Mana is at the heart of everything we do at Teremana, and this has fueled our purpose of sharing good energy, bringing people together, and doing things the right way. To now be able to Share the Mana with more parts of the world is a privilege – cheers, my friends.”

Teremana Tequila is made at its own Destileria Teremana de Agave distillery in Jalisco, in collaboration with third-generation agave growers and second-generation tequila makers, the Lopez family. It is made using 100% mature Blue Weber Agave that is roasted in small, traditional brick ovens for over 72 hours prior to distillation in 100% handmade copper pot stills.

Three expressions of Teremana Tequila are currently available: Blanco, Reposado, and Añejo.

“As we enter this next chapter for the brand, I also want to give thanks for the incredibly hard work of our partners and our team, who are dedicated to bringing our tequila to the people in the right way, without cutting corners,” said Johnson.

“Our shared hope is that Teremana can become a legacy brand, one that brings people together – prioritizing taste and quality – so that everyone can enjoy this wonderful spirit.”
