Denver-based Water For People and Demetrio Tequila have developed an important partnership from which a portion of profits from each purchase of Demetrio will go toward Water For People’s mission to bring safe drinking water to communities across the globe.
Water For People brings together local entrepreneurs, governments, and communities to establish innovative, collaborative solutions that allow people to build and maintain their own reliable, safe water systems.
Significant amounts of water are used throughout the process of making tequila. From the cleaning of agave, to the steam that hydrolyzes it, to the distillation.
Each 750ML bottle of Demetrio contains 27% water.
“Water is essential to tequila, and to life. We wanted to make a real impact in the lives of people around the world, so we chose to partner with an outstanding non-profit that does just that,” said Demetrio Managing Partner Marion Mariathasan. “This is our first exclusive giving partnership and we’re so excited to be working with Water For People.”
The Water For People team is equally excited about the partnership.
“Water For People is proud to partner with Demetrio to help bring safe drinking water to people in developing countries,” said Water For People CEO Ned Breslin. “The road to permanent water coverage is challenging, but the outcomes are easy to root for — more children are in school, more individuals are employed, and more families are healthy and thriving. We’re glad to see companies like Demetrio participate in our efforts.”
