Casamigos Tequila – The Finest Luxury

In Los Cabos, Play by Suzanne Koch

What happens after you’ve created one of the most luxurious places to live? You create a tequila to match.

After Mike Meldman created the luxurious El Dorado community along the “Golden Corridor” on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, it was a no brainer to share the coastline with his close friends. George Clooney and Rande Gerber along with Mike himself have shared many nights down in the El Dorado community, each owning their own beautiful home. The relaxing vibes of the community with their joint love of tequila spurred an idea to make the best tasting, smoothest tequila around. The idea born in the El Dorado community would eventually develop into the effortlessly smooth, award-winning tequila: Casamigos. Years of working out the perfect recipe together, the tequila was originally intended for their own personal enjoyment and not the public. But lucky for the rest of us, they decided to share.

Officially launching in 2013, the perfectly named spirit quickly became the fastest growing tequila brand in North America. Casamigos, which is Spanish for “house of friends,” celebrates the camaraderie between those who drink it while still staying alluringly sexy. Created with the intent to never need a lime or salt, the agave piñas are roasted in brick ovens for 72 hours, distilled with a special yeast blend and fermented for 80 hours. The average tequilas steam their agave piñas for 7 hours and ferment for only 48. If you can’t see the difference, you will certainly be able to taste it.

The best part is Casamigos offers their smooth liquid in Blanco, Reposado and Añejo, making the decision to have three margaritas easier than ever. Tequila connoisseurs will be familiar with the differences between the three, but for the rest of us, here’s a break down:


  • Rests for 2 months
  • Crisp and clean with flavorful hints of vanilla, citrus, and sweet agave
  • Releases a faint aroma of mint, cinnamon, and green agave


  • Ages for seven months in American white oak barrels
  • Slightly oaky flavor with hints of caramel and cocoa
  • Medium to long smooth finish


  • Aged for 14 months in American white Oak barrels
  • Complex aroma with faint caramel and vanilla flavors
  • Lingering smooth finish
