Where to get George Clooney, Cindy Crawford-backed Casamigos Jalapeño Tequila

Casamigos and spicy peppers? Why not.

If you’re an avid alcohol drinker, you probably know all about flavored spirits. Vodka, gin, whiskey, and even tequila makers have been known to add fruit, vegetable, and herbal ingredients to add new dimensions of flavor. While tropical fruits and citrus seem to be the staple flavors, some brands get a little wilder with it. Some even add a little spicy heat. This is the case with Casamigos’ newest expression.

Casamigos thinks that the spicy, thin, bright green pepper we love to add to salsa, tacos, and guacamole deserves its time to shine in the alcohol world. That’s why the brand recently launched Casamigas Jalapeño Tequila.

Casamigos Jalapeño Tequila is more than just another Casamigos tequila. It’s a collaboration between its founders George Clooney, Randy Gerber, and Mike Meldman with Cindy Crawford. The newest expression from the brand, Casamigas Jalapeño Tequila was created to pay homage to Crawford’s favorite cocktail.

“As much as I love Casamigos, my go-to drink for a fun night is a skinny, spicy Casamigos margarita,” Crawford said in a press release. “Casamigas Jalapeño makes it that much easier. It’s Casamigos with a kick!”

The creation of this expression didn’t happen overnight. The process to create this expression began more than six years ago.

“Cindy has obviously been part of the Casamigos journey since day one, and I’m excited that she now gets to put her special touches on Casamigas,” said Gerber.

Casamigas Jalapeño is not just a celebrity gimmick. Like all of Casamigos’ tequilas, it’s an ultra-premium tequila made with 100% Blue Weber agave. It gets its spicy, peppery heat from the addition of real jalapeños.

While you might see a jalapeño-flavored tequila and assume it is all heat and nothing else, this tequila was crafted to be balanced, flavorful, and have a nice kick of heat that’s guaranteed to elevate your margaritas and palomas into new and exciting heights. If cocktails aren’t your thing, this expression makes for a warming, gently spicy shot or slow sipper.

What does it taste like?

If you’re already a fan of Casamigos tequila, you’re going to love Casamigas Jalapeño. It begins with the vegetal sweetness, citrus, and baked agave flavors you expect from the brand. It’s complex, clean, and very mellow but ends with a nice jalapeño kick that has to be tasted to be believed.

How much does it cost?

While sometimes unique expressions such as Casamigos Jalapeño can be limited-edition or limited quantities, this expression is actually available nationwide in both 750ml bottles and 1L bottles for suggested retail prices of $49.99 and $60.99, respectively. This is a must-have expression for anyone who enjoys a little extra heat in their favorite tequila-based cocktail or a spicy tequila sipper neat or on the rocks.

This is the perfect whiskey for racing fans
Jack Daniel's McLaren

When it comes to American whiskey, while there are many household names, there are none more famous than the Tennessee whiskey brand Jack Daniel’s. Not only that, but there are also no world whiskeys more popular than Old No. 7. Clearly, the brand’s popularity is largely due to the one black-labeled whiskey you’ll find in every liquor retailer from Temecula to Tampa.

But if your whole experience with Jack Daniel’s is the classic Old No. 7, you’re missing out on some amazing expressions. This is especially true if you’re talking about the brand’s limited releases. We’re talking about Master Distiller Series whiskeys, Gold Medal Series whiskeys, Sinatra Select, and various single-barrel expressions. And while the brand has myriad limited-edition expressions that we love, we’re most excited about its newest collaboration with McLaren Racing.

If you’re new to tequila, you might not know all the terms. Even if you’re just a beginner, you probably know all about blanco, reposado, añejo, and maybe even joven. But chances are, you’re not familiar with Cristalino tequila. This reasonably contemporary style is simply añejo tequila that’s been charcoal filtered to remove its natural caramel color and various impurities.

The style is more than just a little popular. It’s actually the fastest growing style of tequila according to Nielsen data. The newest brand to get in on the Cristalino trend is Mijenta.

While some spirits are well-known for their high price tags, tequila is known for the opposite reason. This distilled spirit made from the Blue Weber agave plant is known for its value. Sure, you can find ridiculously expensive añejo and extra añejo tequilas. But, compared to single malt Scotch whisky, bourbon, Japanese whisky, and even rye whiskey, countless deals can be found.

For those new to tequila, this agave-based spirit is native to (and must be produced in) Mexico. Similar to cognac, Scotch, and burgundy wine, its name refers to its geographical location. To be considered a tequila, it must be made in the state of Jalisco (where the historic town of Tequila is located) and a handful of other Mexican states.
