CLOSED: We’re giving away bottles of Rita Ora’s Próspero Tequila, just in time for World Tequila Day

Score a bottle of Próspero Blanco to ignite that vacay feeling this July.

Ah tequila. It’s the spirit that may not have the best reputation, but when it’s done right it’s almost always associated with the best memories made on a night out.

Shaken in margaritas or sipped by the glass, this versatile spirit is so well loved across the world that it’s being dedicated a full day to celebrate it.

Keep up with the latest food and booze news across the region here.

World Tequila Day is on the 24th of July each year and it goes without saying that no matter where the hand on the clock is, it’s unapologetic margarita time. Or, perhaps classic Tommy’s time if you prefer, or if you’re hardcore and like it on the rocks, that’s cool too. Regardless of how you like it, this day is for the tequila lovers out there and to help you celebrate we’ve teamed up with British superstar Rita Ora’s award-winning Próspero Tequila.

Born of the lush, volcanic soil of the tequila valley, the majestic Blue Agave infuses the landscape from which Próspero Tequila is created.

Designed by Stella Anguiano, one of Mexico’s renowned female Master Distillers in partnership with Rita Ora, Próspero is a hand-crafted spirit that offers an unparalleled flavour with a smooth, elegant and perfectly balanced finish. Exquisite care is taken throughout the production process to ensure that each bottle reflects pride in the spirit – inside and out. Every element is crafted by hand; from the elegant bottle to the perfectly balanced liquid, to the artistically illustrated label.

Próspero is driven by a commitment to maintain the same process and quality that comes from family tradition – doing things slowly, with patience and with passion. It’s easy to see why Rita Ora is behind a spirit like this: Passion is the driving force that propels Rita’s every endeavour and her fierce support of women’s initiatives are widely celebrated so seeing her align her creativity and energy to launch a super premium brand that is unlike anything that has come before is really no surprise. 

A spirit as unique and original as the women who’ve created it, Próspero Tequila comes in three expressions: 

The Blanco, Rich in aromas and bright tones, Próspero Blanco provides an unparalleled flavour that offers consumers an exceptional quality for the price.

Añejo, which is aged for a minimum of 12 months in oak barrels, Próspero Añejo has flavours of spice, toasted caramel, cacao and roasted fruit.

And the Reposado, aged in oak barrels, Próspero Reposado has a distinct golden tone and a flavour with rich round notes of vanilla, white flowers and lingering spice.

With World Tequila Day around the corner, we’re making the celebrations a little easier by giving away bottles of the unaged Próspero Blanco, a spirit that promises to be the perfect pour for cocktails like a Margarita or Paloma on this worldly celebration.
