George Clooney is now in the tequila business.
The actor has launched his own brand, called Casamigos Tequila, and he promoted it in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Tuesday night at Rocco’s Tacos.
He and co-founders founders Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman hung out with patrons and gave out samples of their new spirit brand.
“George and Rande did not separate the entire night. They both drank the Casamigos specialty cocktails being served," a source told People.
An onlooker said he took a picture with "almost every attendee at the event," and he was “really friendly.”
"There was one woman taking photos with her iPad and George was helping her get the best shots – he kept calling her 'the iPad lady'!" said the insider.
Clooney and his business partners posted a video on their website featuring Stacy Keibler and Gerber’s wife Cindy Crawford.
They described their product by writing, “Longtime friends George Clooney and Rande Gerber love tequila. On the rocks, by the shot, at times, straight from the bottle. Tequila-filled nights with friends is how Casamigos was born. Their idea was to make the best-tasting, smoothest tequila whose taste didn’t have to be covered up with salt or lime. So they did.”
