Tanya Tucker Launches 'Wild' New Line of Tequila


Country legend Tanya Tucker is launching her own tequila brand, Cosa Salvaje. The singer partnered with Elle France, the founder of Cosa Salvaje, which translates to "wild thing" in Spanish.

The tequila is a silver spirit distilled by the family-owned Partida Distillery in Jalisco, Mexico and is made with mature Blue Agave plants.

"I used to be a wild thing, now I just drink a wild thing!" Tanya Tucker said in a press release. "I truly love the taste of Cosa Salvaje and certainly wouldn't be partnering with it if it didn't pass my taste test. All my friends did a blind test with different tequilas and Cosa Salvaje was the hands down winner, so I know everyone else is going to enjoy it as much as I do. What's even more important to me is how the agave and distilling process is environmentally conscious, so we're taking care of our planet too."

Each bottle of Cosa Salvaje tequila is made from recycled glass.
