NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Espolòn® Tequila announced today that the brand will be the official tequila partner of one of this year's most anticipated films, Scream VI, through an exclusive collaboration with Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group.

To celebrate the release of the film, Espolòn Tequila, Paramount Pictures and Spyglass are joining forces on a co-branded, on and off-premise nationwide campaign that includes product integration within the movie, out-of-home creative, a social media and digital campaign, a national consumer sweepstakes, and a partnership with Drizly beginning today and running through April 7th, 2023. Retail displays featuring the movie's revamped Ghostface killer will be installed across the U.S., highlighting an Espolòn sweepstakes where fans can text ESPOLONXSCREAM to 24272 for a chance to be one of 500 winners who will receive a pair of tickets to see Scream VI in theatres.
Espolòn, Paramount Pictures and Spyglass are also partnering with numerous participating movie theatre chains across the U.S. to bring a full consumer experience through a menu of exclusive Scream x Espolòn cocktails like the Thirsty Thriller, a refreshing grapefruit Paloma with Espolòn Blanco, citrus, and rimmed with Black Himalayan salt, and The Last Call, Espolòn's take on the widely popular Espresso Martini crafted with Espolòn Reposado, Frangelico® hazelnut liqueur and cold brew concentrate topped with Ghostface foam art and cocoa powder. Fans at home can also mix up the official cocktail of Scream VI, Espolòn's Empire Screamer, in preparation for the film to hit theatres. This unique cocktail is a scary-good upgrade to the classic margarita, featuring Espolòn Reposado, Grand Mariner®, lime, agave, and a custom "bleeding fruit" garnish atop.
"Scream has been changing the game in horror for decades past and present, captivating audiences with each movie and always remaining timely and relevant in pop culture. We're excited to be a part of Scream VI in a way that feels culturally relevant and proves to the movie's cult following that Espolòn is a must-have tequila," Sean Yelle, Senior Category Marketing Director, White Spirits at Campari America, said. "On March 10th, fans will be able to see why Espolòn is scary smooth but starting now, fans can enjoy our line of award-winning tequilas and mix up our signature cocktails as they prepare to see the film in theatres."

ABOUT ESPOLÒN TEQUILA
Distilled from hand-harvested 100% Blue Weber Agave in Los Altos, the Highlands region of Jalisco, Espolòn's award-winning tequilas are the pride of the Casa San Nicolás. Espolòn was the realization of a lifelong desire for late founder and Master Distiller Cirilo Oropeza, who dreamed of creating a tequila that blends artisanal Mexican tradition with modern techniques.
Espolòn is, at its heart, a tribute to Mexican culture, with striking bottle designs by the rich, storied history of Mexico. Through its labels, Espolòn pays tribute to a true luminary – José Guadalupe Posada. Posada was a 19th century artist and printmaker, a real pioneer, and a bit of a rebel. His most famous work, the calaveras (skeletons), were a powerful commentary on the social injustices of his time. He gave his people a voice and gave the art world a style that continues to influence pop culture today. Today, Espolòn Tequila Blanco, Espolòn Tequila Reposado, Espolòn Tequila Añejo and Espolòn Cristalino each spotlight different moments in Mexican history, led by the legendary rooster, Ramón.
