A collaboration with Orly Anan.

Cues from Mexico’s vibrant past, Meso-American mythology, Mexican pop culture, her grandmother’s home, and a little bit of tequila are what have inspired Israeli/Colombian artist, Orly Anan to dream up five surreal and beautiful worlds for each of Tequila Cazadores’ variants: Blanco, Reposado, Anejo, Extra Anejo and Anejo Cristalino. She is an artist known or her charming still lives and has worked jointly with us to imbue every piece with the character and personality of the country Cazadores calls home.

These altars to agave and tequila incorporate the art, style, and sensibilities of Mexico from pre- to post-colonialism. Alluring and eye-catching, the final suite of assets conjures up a premium quality that is far from the banal bottle service popularized by other tequila brands. Instead, Orly’s still lifes blur the line between advertising and fine art. They are a celebration of the traditions and heritage of Mexico and the colorful people who live there.

Signature cocktails, too.

Our campaign photography focuses on the person and the place. For our product and cocktail work, we drew inspiration from Meso- American myth and the modern Mexican altar to create a visual world that feels as natural on a gallery wall as it does on an outdoor mural.
