The accidental sensation, Casamigo Tequilas were never intended to become the tequila brand it is today, Casamigos was the consequence of many a night of tequila drinking. However at its heart is a firm friendship between actor George Clooney, Mike Meldman who was his co-star in the movie Oceans 13, and business man and former model Rande Gerber. Created with a desire to create a supremely smooth tequila that required no salt or lime Casamigos was originally destined to be ‘just a house-made tequila’ to be enjoyed only by those who had created it.
Served exclusively in their own homes where friends, family and tequila connoisseurs alike soon fell in love and pressed the three to go public.
Produced only in very small batches Casamegos Añejo is created using only 100% Blue Weber agaves grown in the red clay soil of Jalisco where the climate is cool. Once harvested the piñas are roasted slowly over for 72 hours in traditional brick ovens before the juices are fermented over 80 hours using a proprietary yeast blend. To create Casamigos Añejo’s unique, consistent and incredibly refined flavor and character profile it is oak barrel aged over 14 months. Utterly sophisticated in its complexity it is luxuriously sweet. Aromas of smooth caramel enveloped with the delicate softness of vanilla. Creating an impeccable balance of sweetness, the flavor of the Blue Weber agave is layered through with the most exquisite and enticing hints of spice and woody barrel oak.
