George Clooney Was Starting Tequila Company
It's the story we never knew behind George Clooney's thriving tequila company, Casamigos.
Clooney and Rande Gerber realy love tequila. They love it so much, they decided to make their own: the perfect tequila -- so smooth that they could drink it just how they like it -- neat.
Casamigos debuted in the U.S. in 2013, but it turns out the businessman and the movie star were actually "forced" into the venture.
Loosely translated, Casamigos means 'House of Friends', named after the property in Mexico that Gerber and Clooney share.
"They said ... either you're selling it or you're drinking too much,'" Gerber explains, adding that he and Clooney were told they had to get licensed and "get legit" in order to keep producing their beloved tequila.
