This small-batch, ultra-premium unaged Tequila is made from hand-selected 100% blue weber agave from the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. An 80-hour fermentation lends a unique flavor, while aging it in American white oak barrels for 7 months gives hints of caramel and cocoa. The spirit won a Gold medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Product Details

Aging this Tequila in American white oak barrels for seven months gives it hints of caramel and cocoa, a silky texture that’s soft and slightly oaky, and a medium-to-long smooth finish. The spirit is a collaboration between George Clooney, Rande Gerger and Mike Meldman, who created a product smooth enough to eschew the salt and lime, and one that became their house Tequila. Small-batch and ultra-premium, it’s made from hand-selected 100% blue weber agave grown in the red clay soil and cool climate of the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico that’s matured for at least seven years. An eighty-hour fermentation (rather than the typical forty) lends a unique flavor; it won a Silver medal at the 2014 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition.

About the Producer

Casamigos, is a small batch, ultra premium tequila made from the finest, hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agaves, grown in the rich red clay and cool climate of the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Longtime friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman love Tequila: on the rocks, by the shot, at times, straight from the bottle. Tequila-filled nights with friends is how Casamigos was born. The trio's idea was to make the best-tasting, smoothest tequila whose taste didn’t have to be covered up with salt or lime. They worked on the creation of Casamigos with a master distiller in Jalisco, Mexico for years, and held many blind tastings until they knew they got it right. The three friends had been drinking our tequila with friends and family for over five years, and it was never intended to be released to the public. However, they released it to the public so consumers and Tequila connoisseurs alike could enjoy the award-winning spirit. The brand is owned by Gerber Spirits.

    Well made, accessible reposado custom-made for sipping or cocktails

    (Posted on 11/19/2015)

    Some celebrity-backed booze is merely repackaged sugar water designed to attract fans, with little to no involvement from the stars themselves. Casamigos, from business partners and apparent three amigos George Clooney, Rande Gerber (Mr. Cindy Crawford) and Mike Meldman, is a well-made, easy-drinking tequila. Clooney and Gerber own neighboring Mexican vacation houses and enjoy their tequila. When it was time to launch their own label, it’s said they spent four years taste testing and researching to find precisely what they wanted out of a tequila: something you could drink neat or on the rocks without the “need” for lime and salt. Agave hearts (piñas) roast for 72 hours (a long time in the industry), and undergo slow fermentation (80 hours) using a proprietary yeast.

    Available in blanco, reposado and añejo expressions, the 100% blue weber agave highlands tequila opens with the sweet vegetal agave notes one expects in a highland tequila. Hints of pepper spice balance the sweetness on the open. The reposado ages seven months to produce a round, silky-textured tequila with bright notes of toffee, cocoa, vanilla and a bit of oak, while never losing the agave freshness tequila should have. While it’s a tasty sipper, the reposado also works nicely in cocktails, with enough body and viscosity to avoid getting lost. In addition to typical margarita ingredients, consider pairing with basil, habanero-infused simple syrup, and spicy or astringent liqueurs.
