Cleo moved to the UK for her education and at the age of 15 she starred in The Kenny Everett Show, she was involved in the show for eight years and it was rated the top comedy series in the UK. This began her career as an actress and performer.
Throughout her showbiz career, Cleo always had a love for tequila and after years of research and hard work she became an educated aficionado and the UK’s first tequilera, she has since been dubbed the ‘Tequila Queen of the UK’.
In order to create her AquaRiva Blanco, Reposada and Premium Reposada she spent time in Jalisco, each contains 100% Blue Weber agave and therefore produces high quality tequila. Cleo’s tequila became an instant hit and reached the shelves of top supermarkets including Sainsbury’s and Waitrose, a business platform that can take years for some young brands to reach.
Cleo has devoted the majority of her time to AquaRiva tequila, 100% of which she owns and her passion and love for the drink is evident in the brand that has exceeded all expectations.
