Cleo Rocos is passionate about tequila. Good tequila. In 2009 Cleo was honoured with a prestigious award by the tequila industry in Mexico. She decided to create AquaRiva® 100% Agave Tequila as she could not find a premium, smooth 100% agave tequila at an affordable price. Cleo’s 100% Agave AquaRiva® Tequila range is made from hand-selected eight-year-old Blue Weber agave plants and volcanic spring water from the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. AquaRiva® Tequila is made in a family run distillery in Arandas Mexico. It is an internationally multi award winning brand including the award of “Best of the Best” in the USA.

Cleo spent over 11 months working with a master blender in Mexico, to create the 3 profiles of AquaRiva® Premium 100% Agave Tequila. Cleo wanted to minimise the burn often found in tequila and to feature the warmth and agave flavours. It’s a very long process to get right, reducing the burn and also reducing the methanol to a very low level, so enabling customers to wake the next day feeling fresh and fabulous.

Remember that you are fabulous and never drink with Dreary People

Cleo commissioned a 17-year-old art student who she met on the subway to do her label. The artist painted an image of himself and his girlfriend dancing on the wing of an airplane. The bottle is simple and was chosen by the bartenders.

AquaRiva® Tequila was created for everyone to enjoy. It can be sipped and savoured as a short drink or in your favourite cocktails. It is perfectly balanced for cocktail enthusiasts and bartenders. “Like Drinking Your First Day of Holiday”

Cleo gives master classes on tequila, is a spirits judge and a best selling author.
