George Clooney has founded Casamigos Spirits Company to look after the importation of Casamigos Tequila

Effective from 1 January 2016, Casamigos Spirits Company will be the exclusive importer for Casamios Tequila due to the “rapid growth and success” of the brand.

“We are extremely proud of Casamigos Tequila’s success and are very happy people enjoy drinking Casamigos as much as we do,” commented Casamigos owners Clooney, Gerber and Meldman.

The new venture will be spearheaded by Lee Ensidler, former CEO of Sidney Frank Importing Company.

“The excitement, dedication and authenticity of Casamigos Tequila reminds me of when I launched Grey Goose Vodka, which quickly became the number one selling ultra-premium vodka worldwide,” said Einsidler, newly appointed CEO of Casamigos Spirits Company.

“The overwhelming consumer reaction to Casamigos Tequila, the glowing product reviews call to mind that same phenomenon.

“Casamigos has all the necessary ingredients for tremendous success and is the reason it has become the fastest growing premium tequila in the country: the best tasting, smoothest Tequila, perfect package design, grassroots popularity, critical acclaim, and enormously talented and dedicated owners and team behind it.”

Sidney Frank Importing Company won the rights to import Casamigos Tequila under Einsidler’s leadership in April 2014.

Einsidler will be assisted by Adam Rosen, EVP, and Olivier Bugat, VP, of Sidney Frank Importing Company at Casamigos Spirits Company.
