Longtime friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman love Casamigos. On the rocks, by the shot, at times, straight from the bottle. Tequila-filled nights with friends is how Casamigos was born. “Our idea was to make the best-tasting, smoothest Tequila and Mezcal that didn’t have to be covered up with salt or lime. So we did.” -George Clooney and Rande Gerber Casamigos.
A small batch, ultra-premium tequila made from the finest, hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agaves is grown in the rich red clay and cool climate of the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico for a minimum of seven years. After harvest, the agave piñas are roasted in traditional brick ovens for 72 hours, before undergoing an extra-slow fermentation process over an additional eighty hours, nearly double the industry standard.
Casamigos Blanco Tequila rests for 2 months and is crisp and clean with hints of citrus, vanilla and sweet agave, with a long smooth finish. Casamigos Blanco is best served neat on the rocks or as a perfect base for cocktails such as the classic margarita. To make simply mix 2 oz Casamigos Blanco Tequila, 1 oz fresh lime juice, .25 oz fresh orange juice, .5 oz agave nectar, and .5 oz orange liqueur of your choice in a shaker. Add ice, shake vigorously and then strain into a rocks glass. Add fresh ice and garnish with a lime wheel.
