Casamigos Blanco Tequila
Casamigos // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Casamigos is a tequila brand created by friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber, and Mike Meldman. They have chosen NOM 1416 (Productos Finos de Agave) to be where this tequila is made and agaves from the Highlands of Jalisco are chosen for distillation. Their blanco rests for 2 months in stainless-steel before bottling at 80 proof.
Tequila BlancoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is typically unaged , clear, and bottled straight after distillation. Sometimes rested in stainless steel up to 60 days and can also be aged in wood for no more than 30 days.
"Sweet vanilla and ripe agave greet you on the nose with a slight vegetal nature and mint accompanying it. The tequila is clean and minty on your palate with full, chewy body. The tequila is flavorful without a harsh bitterness, but does have a fair amount of sweetness on the palate and finish."
