Following the success of his fashion brands, Daniel co-founded DNA Spirits LLC, a tequila brand, with his friend Adam Millman. Adam is the company’s CEO, while Daniel is the company’s president.
DE-NADA Tequila (DNA) was founded due to a worthwhile quest to find the perfect tequila brand. On the website it says,
“DE-NADA Tequila is the result of an epic, three-year quest to find the perfect tequila. After visiting 10 distilleries, best friends and tequila enthusiasts Danny Neeson and Adam Millman visited Arandas in Jalisco, Mexico.
Here, these two millennial entrepreneurs found “the one” and initiated a collaboration with award-winning, 5th generation tequila producers, Feliciano Vivanco y Asociados.”
