ABOUT JAMIE DELIA

Casamigos was launched in 2013, by American actor George Clooney, nightlife entrepreneur Rande Gerber and property developer Mike Meldman. The name Casamigos comes from the Spanish “casa” and “amigos”, house of friends. Casamigos was founded on a sheer love for tequila and an interest in creating a their own for personal consumption, there was never an intent to take the company public. However, with so much Casamigos being consumed they were required to obtain a business license. Casamigos was later sold to Diageo for $1 billion in June 2017 – a sale that made Clooney the highest paid actor of 2018, despite not appearing in a film. Casamigos has recently introduced a Mezcal into the family and it just might be as smooth as George Clooney himself.
