Wine Enthusiast Interview with George Clooney and Rande Gerber

Drinking Tequila with Clooney
Wine Enthusiast sits down with George Clooney and Rande Gerber to talk Tequila, wine and how to avoid a hangover.

George Clooney and his longtime pal Rande Gerber (who owns the Whiskey Blue and Living Room bar chains) set out to make a small batch of their favorite Mexican booze and the Casamigos brand was born. Now, it’s coming to America. We sit down with the two to talk Tequila, wine and how to avoid a hangover.

Wine Enthusiast: How did Casamigos come to be?
George Clooney: Casamigos was always intended as our house Tequila for our homes in Mexico and only recently, at the urging of people who enjoyed it with us, we decided to make it available to the public.

WE: Why did you want to make Tequila?
Rande Gerber: George and I were on a never-ending search for the perfect Tequila. There were a few very good ones, but there was always something we wished we could change.
GC: Yeah, one we didn’t need to cover up with salt or lime.

WE: What is your favorite way to drink Casamigos?
GC: Depends on the setting. If we’re sitting around before dinner, I tend to enjoy it neat. If we are out at a bar and we’re drinking it all night long, Rande throws a few cubes in. We love that we can drink it straight all night long with no hangover the next morning.

WE: When it isn’t Tequila, what are some of your favorite wines?
GC: I’ve really come to like Barolos recently—and Valpolicella. Giacomo Conterno Barolo Monfortino comes to mind. And, lately, Zenato Amarone della Valpolicella.

WE: What is your favorite food and wine pairing?
GC: Pinot Grigio with fish, cooked fillet-style like they serve it in Italy. And some Tuscan reds when going more towards pastas with rich and heavy sauces.

WE: So, when you sip your Tequila, what comes to mind?
GC: Beachside in Cabo, just relaxing and watching the beauty of the earth in front of me.

Good pairing of wine varieties with meal.
He seems to like northern Italian varieties like Barolo & Valpolicello.

Quite a connoisseur
Great lifestyle, n'est-ce pas?

thanks silly girl for the artical.

If I would drink Tequila all night long I would not only feel hangover the next morning maybe the whole week. Maybe I would not even survive the night. LOL Maybe I need to try it out to see how far I get Vomit 1 Vomit 1 Stretchered out Stretchered out

Yep, all good till it got to the point "no hangover" , that was pushing it - too far. Smile The more it is advertised, more people think they need it. Like anything. This gives them excuse to buy stuff, even if they really want memories.

When you have a good night sleep nothing much memorable about that. But long night serious drinking? hmm whole another story. What does it matter if you look like you´ve been deep sea fishing all night. Hangover definately, funny stories maybe.

Um, one of the brands has less alcohol in it. I saw one being described as weaker than other tequilas. Don't remember which, but I'll bet its their fav for the all nighters. So they can have its taste without the hangover punch.

I really love blended margaritas with lime and salt.
I wonder if that would cause Rande and George to cringe. Two margaritas, maybe three...all night? Ouch!
