So THAT`S why George Clooney is in the tequila business

We have a healthy appetite or maybe a hollow leg to thank for Casamigos, George Clooney’s tequila brand.

The venture just started out as a quest to make the perfect tequila between drinking buddies turned business partners, Clooney and Rande Gerber. The bros spent two years crafting their creation — which obviously sounds amazing — and another two years celebrating their drink. Which makes complete sense to us, but didn’t fly so well with the distillery as Gerber told Entertainment Tonight:

They said … either you’re selling it or you’re drinking too much.

And they told Amal and Cindy Crawford’s hubbies that if they wanted to keep making the tequila they had to get a legit license. And, thus a business was born!
