Casamigos is a tequila house founded by George Clooney and Rande Gerber, and Mike Meldman in 2013. 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.
Casamigos is produced at the Productos Finos de Agave; 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.
