Many years ago George Clooney and Rande Gerber, who have been close friends for over 20 years, had the idea to build adjacent homes in Mexico and wanted to develop a “house” tequila blend, only to be enjoyed by their friends and family – made exclusively for their homes. They called their homes Casamigos, which loosely translates to “house of friends” and Casamigos became the name of their house tequila.
After their homes were built, they worked with a master distiller in the Jalisco region of Mexico for over six years to perfect their private blend, Casamigos Blanco and Reposado. It was only after sampling the tequila and serving it at parties with friends and conducting blind taste testings that they knew they had a truly special tequila. Casamigos was launched on a national level in January 2013 and is currently offered at a variety of on and off premise accounts in all major markets across the United States.
