Casamigos – George Clooney Does Tequila



Being a rather conspicuous tequila consumer, which is apparently what everyone does while sitting around at a Lake Como villa, George Clooney and his buddy Rande Gerber decided to make their own, by golly..!

After a few years of trial and error, and working with their chosen master distiller, they arrived at their target recipe. 

Say "hola" to Casamigos
The tequila has been available for a couple of years, but these guys have been on a bit of a media blitz lately, so I figured I would add to the fire…  it is alcohol, you know!

The blanco, reposado and añejo are all represented, so you can take your pick.  For a quick primer on the differences between each, read my tequila lesson here.  Made in Jalisco by the same distillery that produces Avion and Clase Azul, the Casamigos team claims a slow cooking and fermentation process with proprietary yeast.  Does this process make a difference in quality..?  Your tequila taste test will be the judge…
If you decide to pick up a bottle, you are looking at mid-40s in price, depending on source.  Give it a try and let me know what you think…

Cheers..!     (Legal disclaimer:  no limes were hurt in the research for this article.)
