Earlier today, best friends George Clooney and Rande Gerber were photographed as they headed to the Venice Film Festival in Italy. The Oscar winning actor and producer was wearing his favorite Casamigos Tequila t-shirt, as he is a co-owner and founder of the brand with Gerber and Discovery Land Company Chairman Mike Meldman. Although they have been drinking it privately for many years, Clooney and Gerber launched Casamigos in January; the brand has since become the world’s most popular and fastest growing tequila. Most recently, Oprah named Casamigos as her favorite tequila and the brand took home a Gold Medal from the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition.
The Oscar winning actor and producer is in town to celebrate the world premiere of “Gravity,” a heart-pounding deep space thriller, which opens the Venice Film Festival on Wednesday night. Clooney stars in the film along side Sandra Bullock.
