Dwayne Johnson May Be Launching a Tequila Brand Called Mana

The Rock is looking to have his own brand of tequila.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has just the perfect way to celebrate his box office win for Rampagedrinking some tequila!

It won't be just any tequila though. TMZ reports The Rock's company filed paperwork to trademark the name Mana in a first step to launch his own tequila brand. The word "mana" comes from Polynesian and Melanesian culture, meaning "a supernatural force or power that may be ascribed to persons, spirits, or inanimate objects," according to Britannica's definition. And just like tequila it can be "beneficial or dangerous." 

Last year, The Rock also described the definition of mana in a lengthy Instagram post on his detailed bull tattoo.

"Every detail is a reflection of my own personal history," it read. "From the cracks and heavy damage in the bone representing life's hard lessons I've learned over the years. Just like scars and wrinkles - I'm so grateful to have 'em because they're earned. To the horns, not pointing up or out to the side, but pointing straight ahead representing relentless energy and forward progress. The core and anchor of this image is in the eye. Look closely and you'll find the life, energy, power and you'll feel the MANA (spirit). The eye tells the story of a disruptive positive energy always ready to dent the universe."

Aside from the brand having deep ties to The Rock, it's also worth noting that the 45-year-old movie star is a well-documented tequila lover. He's known for drinking the liquor on his cheat days. But even when he's in grind mode, he admits it's the one thing he can't give up. During his hardcore workout regime for 2014's Hercules, he still drank tequila. "To prep as a demigod, in my opinion, is the occasional glass of tequila - sipped, not a shoot-up (shot). We're not back at college," he told Independent.

If a tequila brand is in the works, The Rock will join other celebs who've launched their own tequila brand including George Clooney, Carlos Santana, and Justin Timberlake.
