CASAMIGOS ANEJO TEQ 1L
Longtime friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman love Casamigos. On the rocks, by the shot, at times, straight from the bottle. Tequila-filled nights with friends is how Casamigos was born. “Our idea was to make the best-tasting, smoothest Tequila and Mezcal that didn’t have to be covered up with salt or lime. So we did.” -George Clooney and Rande Gerber Casamigos, a small batch, ultra-premium tequila made from the finest, hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agaves, grown in the rich red clay and cool climate of the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico for a minimum of seven years. After harvest, the agave piñas are roasted in traditional brick ovens for 72 hours, before undergoing an extra-slow fermentation process over an additional eighty hours, nearly double the industry standard. Casamigos Añejo is aged for 14 months. It has a pure and complex aroma, with soft caramel and vanilla notes. Perfect balance of sweetness from the Blue Weber agaves, with subtle hints of spice and barrel oak, with a lingering smooth finish. Casamigos Añejo is enjoyed best neat or on the rocks. For one looking for a new take on a classic cocktail try the Casamigos Old Fashioned. In a mixing glass over ice mix 1.75 oz Casamigos Añejo Tequila, .25 oz vanilla syrup, 3 drops of lemon bitters. Stir all ingredients together and then strain into a large rocks glass with the ice of your choice. Garnish with an orange peel.
