Caramel with hints of cocoa on the nose with a silky, medium texture, with balance notes of dry fruits. Medium to long finish. Aged for seven months in American white oak casks that have been reconditioned after originally being used for premium-aged whiskey. To give each tequila its special flavor profile and ensure the finest quality, we use old-style copper-lined pot stills for distillation.
Casamigos Tequila is a small batch, ultra-premium tequila made from the finest, hand-selected, 100% Blue Weber agaves, which are grown in the rich, red clay soil and cool climate of the Jalisco Highlands of Mexico. Our agaves are harvested after maturing for a minimum of seven years, and are hand-chosen for size and quality. They are then taken directly to the distillery and processed within 48 hours so as not to lose any of their properties. Our master distiller uses a proprietary yeast blend to ensure the most refined tequila. Following that is an extra-slow fermentation process, which takes 80 hours to complete (and is double the industry standard), and the use of bagasse from our agave, which results in a deep, rich flavor, and produces a tequila that is smooth with no burn.
Longtime friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber, and Mike Meldman love tequila. On the rocks, by the shot, at times, straight from the bottle. Tequila-filled nights with friends is how Casamigos was born. Their idea was to make the best-tasting, smoothest tequila whose taste didn't have to be covered up with salt or lime. So they did.
