George Clooney, Rande Gerber, and Mike Meldman co-founded Casamigos (“House of Friends”) with the purpose of designing a tequila that they all personally enjoyed. In fact it wasn’t originally intended to be sold at all. After commercialization the tequila brand saw huge success and was subsequently purchased by Diageo in 2017.
Casamigos is the essence of smoothe. Velvety, creamy caramel aroma with delicate notes of white pepper and agave. Off-sweet palate that offers a relatively full body, ripe for sipping neat.
Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant. It is primarily produced in the Mexican State of Jalisco, and also in areas surrounding the city of Tequila just northwest of Guadalajara. It is recognized as a Mexican Designation of Origin product in more than 40 countries. Technically tequila is a specialized type of “Mezcal,” an ancient Mexican spirit made from numerous varieties of agave and often imbued with a smoky quality via its production process.
