Tequila-filled Nights WITH FRIENDS BORN OUT OF HIP SIPS C reated and privately owned by longtime friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Michael Meldman, Casamigos embodies the spirit of field-to-bottle cra tequila. Available in Blanco, Reposado and Añejo, these small batch, ultra-premium tequilas are made from the finest hand- selected 100% blue Weber agave grown for a minimum of seven years in the rich red clay soil and cool climate of Mexico's Jalisco Highlands. CASAMIGOS BLANCO is crisp and clean with hints of citrus and sweet agave with a long smooth finish. CASAMIGOS REPOSADO is so, slightly oaky with hints of caramel and cocoa and has a silky texture with a medium to long smooth finish. CASAMIGOS AÑEJO has a beautifully pure and refined complex aroma with so caramel and vanilla notes. It has a perfect balance of sweetness from the blue Weber agaves layered with barrel oak and subtle hints of spice with a lingering smooth finish.
