This tequila might be worth a billion dollars (we'll explain), but you certainly won't be paying a premium to enjoy it.
Hailing from the Highlands (Los Altos in the state of Jalisco), Casamigos tequila is smooth and silky on the palate. The brand — co-founded by George Clooney, entrepreneur Rande Gerber and real estate tycoon Mike Medlman — was launched in 2013 offering Tequila Añejo with notes of green pepper, white pepper, butterscotch, and marshmallow. With a sweet taste and full mouthfeel, it makes for a perfect after-dinner sipping spirit alongside dessert. It's certainly one of our favorite tequilas, but it seems British beverage company Diageo likes it even more. A lot more. In an unprecedented deal, Diageo bought the Casamigos tequila brand in June 2017 for nearly $1 billion. According to Diageo, it will initially pay $700 million, with another potential $300 million based on the tequila's performance over 10 years.
