Nayana Ferguson is the co-founder of Teeq Tequila. As a pancreatic and breast cancer survivor, she and her husband came up with the idea to own their own tequila company and develop a drink that was cleaner and classier. Nayana takes great care into what she put into her body after her diagnosis, so creating a tequila that was naturally gluten-free and low in carbs, sugars and calories, was an important process for her. Looking to change the stereotype, Teeq Tequila has the world’s only Coconut Lime Blanco Tequila; A drink that is smooth and can be sipped alone.
