Fowler used his massive wealth to buy a minority stake in The Long Drink Company
Fowler might already have a massive wealth, but he still knows the importance of investing. Last week, Fowler purchased a minority stake in an adult beverage company called The Long Drink Company.
The company’s feature drink is The Finnish Long Drink, which is described as a “refreshing, citrus soda with a premium liquor kick”. Fowler talked to The Spirits Business about his newest business venture.
I’m really excited to join The Long Drink team as an investor. When Kyrre (Kygo) and Myles Shear sent me a couple cases to try, I knew I wanted to get involved. Long Drink really stood out to me from the rest of the canned cocktails and seltzers that I have tried. It tastes amazing and is perfect after a day on the course.Rickie Fowler

Fowler isn’t the only celebrity joining the Long Drink team. He’ll be joining actor Miles Teller and DJ Kygo as stake owners in the adult beverage company.
Fowler was introduced to the product by Teller, who’s been involved with the company since last summer.
I’m thrilled to be partnering with Kygo and Rickie. Both these guys are at the top of their game and they are a perfect fit for Long Drink. I look forward to collaborating with them and being on the front lines as we continue to expand the awareness and growth of Long Drink across the country.”Miles Teller
