Apart from being a star and a producer, the actor calls himself a serial entrepreneur.

Johnson’s Teremana Tequila was started in March 2020 and the actor partnered with the influential Lopez Family to open a distillery dedicated to Teramana in their Agave grounds. The alcohol brand seems to be a huge sell, with the company reportedly selling close to 300,000 cases within its first year of operation and selling more than 600,000 cases by 2021.

Due to Dwayne Johnson’s intense marketing plan and his superstar nature, the brand has become extremely profitable in a short time. Talking about his plan for the brand to The Spirits Business, he said,

“I want to build Teremana into a true international Tequila brand…It’s a very exciting time for our companies. But to win, we gotta stay focused, hungry, and humble.”

Johnson has also reportedly partnered with Mast‐Jägermeister to handle the distribution of the beloved brand.

Dwayne Johnson’s tequila brand Teramana Tequila is reportedly well on its way to becoming one of the actor’s largest income streams. While the actor has seen great paydays as a global star, it could be the profitability of the tequila brand that makes him a billionaire.

There have been no official announcements regarding this, but according to Celebrity Net Worth, Dwayne Johnson may earn a billion dollars just through the trend of the industry alone. According to the website, other celebrities who have similarly started their alcohol brand have earned millions after selling them. These celebrities include fighter Conor McGregor and George Clooney. Clooney reportedly sold his tequila brand Casamigos Tequila for $1 billion.

The website claimed that Clooney sold his company when the sales of his brand were reaching only 170,00 cases. With Dwayne Johnson’s company selling way more cases, the company is likely worth much more. The actor’s incredible $800 million net worth could reach a billion in case the actor decides to sell.

For a star, who has repeatedly stressed the importance of fitness and health to earn his first billion with his alcohol brand is an interesting case of events to say the least. The actor recently came clean about his bouts of depression during his life and also mentioned the importance of mental health.
