Casamigos Tequila is one of the most well-loved tequilas today because of it’s ultra-premium taste. The Casamigos brand is famous for being started by Hollywood movie star George Clooney, and is one of the fastest-growing tequila brands in the world.

Casamigos was in fact ‘accidentally’ founded in 2013 by George Clooney alongside bar and restaurant tycoon Rande Gerber and property developer Mike Meldan. Some years before, Clooney and Gerber were at a bar one night reflecting on how they still hadn’t found their ‘perfect tequila’ despite all the bottles and brands they’d tasted, so doing what any sane tequila-drinking multimillionaire would do, they decided to create their own.

In a 2018 interview, Gerber explained how they ‘wanted one that didn’t burn going down, that was super smooth….  that we didn’t have to mix and could drink straight or on the rocks, and could drink all day long without being hungover in the morning.’ 

They sampled 700 different recipes across their 2-year search. When they finally found their recipe it quickly became a hit amongst all their friends and they were soon ordering 1000 bottles a year of the stuff. This was when the manufacturers informed them that if they wanted to keep this up they’d have to get a licence. At this point, Meldman joined in and the three of them took a leap of faith and launched the brand ‘Casamigos’ commercially in 2013, going on to win multiple awards at various spirits competitions.

Casamigos Blanco Tequila is a smooth, light-bodied tequila perfect for sipping on the rocks thanks to it’s sweet and clean taste. It’s perfect for parties or enjoying casually with friends, and a great choice to blend in with cocktails.

Alongside Casamigos Blanco Tequila, the brand also produces it’s popular Casamigos Reposado and Casamigos Añejo Tequilas, along with other non-tequila spirits such as mezcal.

What makes the Casamigos Blanco Tequila special?

Casamigos Blanco Tequila is made from hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agaves from the rich clay soil of the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. The agaves are slow-roasted in traditional brick ovens for 72 hours - longer than that of most traditional tequilas. Aside from that, the fermentation is an 80 hour process giving Casamigos Blanco it’s unique flavour, compared to the average 48 hour process with usual tequilas. Finally, Casamigos Blanco tequila is bottled at 80 proof and sent to us in the UK so we can enjoy this ‘Hollywood-level’ premium tequila for ourselves.

But Casamigos is not just celebrity hype - since it’s launching, the brand and it’s spirits have won numerous gold medal awards at various competitions such as the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition and San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
