George Clooney’s Tequila comes to the UKBy Becky Paskin
George Clooney is finally launching his Tequila brand, Casamigos, in the UK this spring.
The brand, created by Clooney and business partner Rande Gerber in 2012, claims to have become the fastest-growing ultra-premium Tequila in the US.
Already available across the US, Bahamas, Canada and Hong Kong, the brand will now become available in the UK in Blanco, Reposado and Añejo varieties.
Clooney, who has appeard in films such as Gravity and The Monuments Men, said: “We love tequila. On the rocks, by the shot, at times, straight from the bottle.
“We are excited to bring Casamigos to the UK. It’s a great feeling to share something we created, drink and are extremely proud of,” added Clooney and Gerber.
The brand will be distributed through Cellar Trends in the UK.
“Casamigos Blanco is crisp and clear, with subtle hints of vanilla and a smooth finish, Casamigos Reposado is smooth and clean with hints of caramel, and Casamigos Añejo is a perfect balance of sweetness from the Blue Weber agaves, layered with barrel oak and subtle hints of spice with a lingering smooth finish,” says Gerber. “All expressions are great served neat or on the rocks, and are the perfect base for premium cocktails,”
It will carry an RRP of £49.99 for the Blanco, £54.99 for the Reposado and £59.99 for the Añejo.
