LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 22, 2013) - BevMo!, the ultimate neighborhood specialty beverage retailer, and Casamigos Tequila, an ultra premium tequila brand owned by George Clooney and Rande Gerber, are teaming up to host a Twitter party in celebration of National Tequila Day Wednesday, July 24. Whether you are curious about the difference between reposado and añejo or always wondered which tequila to sip or shoot, Casamigos' tequila experts and the BevMo! team will be on hand from 6-7 p.m. PST to answer all your tequila queries.
"We are so excited to partner with Casamigos and to have the chance to interact with all the BevMo! and Casamigos fans in the Twitter community," said Kris Mulkey of BevMo! "We can't think of a better way to celebrate National Tequila Day than with George Clooney and Rande Gerber's Casamigos brand."

"We love tequila. On the rocks, by the shot, at times, straight from the bottle," said Clooney and Gerber. "Our idea was to make the best-tasting, smoothest tequila whose taste didn't have to be covered up with salt or lime, so we did."
Additionally, Los Angeles, Tempe, Scottsdale and San Francisco area fans will have the chance to attend four exclusive Casamigos tastings. From 5-7 p.m., the West Hollywood, Tempe, Scottsdale, and Walnut Creek BevMo! stores will be serving up Casamigos Reposado and Blanco in two George and Rande approved recipes, the Mi Casa and the Su Casa.

Rande Gerber partnered with longtime friend George Clooney and Discovery Land Company CEO & founder Mike Meldman to launch Casamigos Tequila. Casamigos Tequila is a small batch, ultra-premium tequila made from the finest, hand-selected, 100% Blue Weber agaves, which are grown in the rich, red clay soil and cool climate of the Jalisco Highlands of Mexico.
In their late-night "research sessions," Gerber and Clooney preferred a sipping tequila known as Reposado, a term referring to the aging period when the spirit rests in oak barrels. This inspired the notion: "What if we made this stuff ourselves, the way we like it, and made it our private house tequila?" Casamigos Tequila currently produces a Blanco and a Reposado and made its national debut in January 2013, and is sold in every major market across the United States.
Casamigos has garnered a variety of accolades from the spirit industry's most well respected authority figures. Casamigos won the Gold Medal at the 2013 the Los Angeles International Spirit Awards, Good Spirits named Casamigos "A Perfect Tequila," The Spirits Review described Casamigos as an "Excellent and Complex Tequila," and BevX calls "Casamigos a Winner." Most recently, Oprah Winfrey highlighted Casamigos blanco tequila as her favorite tequila in the august issue of O Magazine, The Oprah Magazine.
