Fans of Tequila looking to dip their toe into the meatier Mezcal market, look no further than Casamigos’ latest creation. As you’d expect from any brand headed up by George Clooney, this is super smooth with a touch of salt and pepper. Gentler and lighter than many Mezcals, Casamigos is a masterclass in elegance, brimming with tamarind, mango, pomegranate, smoked peppercorns and wild herbs like mint, oregano and thyme. Sip neat to bring out the spice in tacos and quesadillas, or mix into your favourite Tequila cocktail recipes to add a smoky dimension.
Casamigos Mezcal is made from 100% Espadín agave grown in Oaxaca’s Santiago Matatlán – considered the capital of Mezcal country. The hearts, or piñas, of the agave are split and roasted for five days in underground pits imparting the famed smokiness. These are then cooled and crushed with a horse-drawn tahona wheel made of volcanic rock. The juice is then fermented, painstakingly distilled in copper pot stills and filled into these beautiful frosted bottles.
Famed for its small-batch, ultra-premium Tequila, Casamigos has now branched out into Mezcal. Created by long-time friends George Clooney and Rande Gerber, this brand has gone from strength to strength in recent years. This was proven to dramatic effect when Casamigos was sold to Diageo for $1 billion – a deal that made George Clooney 2018’s highest-paid actor without him really having to make many films. Several years ago, George and Rande were introduced to a Mezcal produced by a family who have been mastering their art for five generations. They instantly fell in love with it, but kept it on the backburner while concentrating on their Tequila. But now they’re ready to unleash it on the world.
