Casamigos is a tequila house founded by George Clooney and Rande Gerber, and Mike Meldman in 2013. It was later purchased by Diageo for up to $1 billion in 2017. The name Casamigos is derived from the Spanish words "casa" and "amigos," house and friends, essentially "house of friends.” The brainchild was born in Cabo San Lucas, where Gerber and Clooney were building their vacation homes and sampling tequilas. Essentially living the life of millionaires. Clooney brought up the idea of crafting their own tequilas, and they eventually commissioned a distillery in Jalisco, Mexico to produce a tequila that “tasted great and didn’t burn going down…” and gave “little hangover” the next day. The duo also wanted people to be able to drink it straight or with ice. After ordering “a thousand bottles per year” while sampling from the distillery over a span of two years, the distillery required them to get a business, eventually turning the private tequila house public. In Mexico, tequila distilleries are identified by their NOM, a number given by the Mexican Government to identify legal entities that produce tequila. Casamigos is produced at the Productos Finos de Agave; NOM 1416, the same distillery that makes well-known brands like Avion (the tequila created by the “Entourage” crew) and Clase Azul. Often classified in the same area as Casa Noble Tequilas, Casamigos is crafted from agave sourced from the Highlands of Jalisco. Though the businesses success is propelled by celebrity, Clooney and Gerber have succeeded in crafting a high-quality product with sophisticated, nuanced flavors. Casamigos Tequila Reposado is made from 100% Agave, produced at Productos Finos de Agave in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. This small batch, ultra-premium Tequila is made from the finest, hand-selected Blue Weber Agave which is then slow cooked, and fermented slowly with proprietary yeast. The tequila rests for seven months in ex-whiskey barrels. Bottled at 80 proof, this tequila showcases soft, slightly oaky notes with hints of caramel and cocoa. It has a silky texture with a medium to long smooth finish. Get your bottle today!
