Brought To You By Those Who Drink It. Privately owned by longtime friends George Clooney and Rande Gerber, founder of Gerber Spirits, and Discovery Land Company CEO & founder Michael Meldman, tequila-filled nights with friends is how Casamigos was born. Available in Blanco, Reposado and Añejo, these small batch, ultra-premium tequilas are made from the finest hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agaves grown in the rich red clay soil and cool climate of Mexico’s Jalisco Highlands for a minimum of seven years. Casamigos Blanco is crisp and clean with hints of citrus and sweet agave with a long smooth finish. Casamigos Reposado is soft, slightly oaky with hints of caramel and cocoa and has a silky texture with a medium to long smooth finish. Casamigos Añejo has a beautifully pure and refined complex aroma with soft caramel and vanilla notes. It’s the perfect balance of sweetness from the blue weber agaves layered with barrel oak and subtle hints of spice with a lingering smooth finish.
Casamigos has garnered the highest accolades from the spirit industry’s most well respected authority figures. Awards and ratings include the highest rated gold medals from the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and the Beverage Tasting Institute. The coveted 5 star rating from BevX magazine, “A perfect tequila”, A rating, from Good Spirit News, noted as “The Smoothest, The Best” by Oprah, and voted “Best Tequila In The World” by Men’s Journal Magazine.
