Casamigos Tequila, the fast-growing ultra-premium tequila created by friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman, has appointed Stansfeld Scott as its representative in the Caribbean.
Casamigos Blanco, Reposado and Añejo tequilas are available in 1.75-liter, liter, 750ml, 375ml and 50ml sizes.
“We spent many months researching master distillers and distilleries and found the best in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico,” said Gerber. “Two years and 700 bottles of samples later, they finally got it perfect. We made Casamigos just for us to drink and share with friends. We took the time and had the patience to get it just right.
He continued: “Named after our homes in Mexico, Casamigos loosely translates as house of friends. It wasn’t intended for the public, but after word got out, we couldn’t resist sharing it with everyone.”
Casamigos is available in Blanco, Reposado and Añejo. These small batch, ultra-premium tequilas are made from the finest 100% blue Weber agaves, grown in the red clay soil and cool climate of Mexico’s Jalisco highlands.
The agaves are harvested after maturing for a minimum of seven years. After harvest, the agave piñas are roasted for 72 hours before undergoing an extra-slow fermentation process over 80 hours, nearly double the industry standard.
This refined process ensures a smooth mouth feel with no unnecessary additives and is gluten-free, the brand said.
