Lexington, Kentucky (July 10, 2023) – The PGA TOUR Barbasol Championship announced today that Casamigos has been named the “Official Tequila” of the 2023 Barbasol.
“We are proud to welcome Casamigos as the Official Tequila of the PGA TOUR Barbasol Championship,” said Barbasol Tournament Director Darren Nelson. “World class golf and ultra-premium Casamigos, award-winning tequila and mezcal, makes for an exceptional partnership.”
The Barbasol Championship will be contested at Champions at Keene Trace in Nicholasville, Kentucky July 13-16. As part of their Barbasol activation, Casamigos will serve three specialty cocktails and offer a flight-tasting experience throughout the tournament.
“The team at Casamigos is honored to partner with Kentucky’s only PGA TOUR event, the Barbasol Championship,” said Casamigos VP of Sales for Kentucky and Indiana, Samantha Labanauskas. “We are looking forward to having fans in the Bluegrass enjoy our award-winning Tequila and Mezcal while watching world-class golf at one of the most beautiful courses in the country. We are also excited for fans to taste our new Casamigos Cristalino we launched nationally in June 2023. Casamigos Cristalino Reposado embodies the rich complexity of a traditional Reposado in a liquid that is twice distilled and aged to perfection in American white oak barrels, then carefully charcoal filtered to restore the crisp agave flavor found in Blanco Tequila while maintaining some of the nuanced cask notes.”

Longtime friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman love Casamigos. On the rocks, by the shot, and at times straight from the bottle. Tequila-filled nights with friends is how Casamigos was born. Our idea was to make the best-tasting, smoothest Tequila and Mezcal, whose taste didn’t have to be covered up with salt or lime. So we did.
Casamigos was made just for us. We worked on the creation of Casamigos with our master distiller in Jalisco, Mexico for years. It was never intended to be released to the public. It’s all we served at our homes in Mexico, so it’s literally our house tequila. But since we made this for friends, we thought it wouldn’t hurt to make a few more.
We are delighted that consumers and tequila and mezcal connoisseurs alike enjoy and appreciate the authenticity of Casamigos. This is quality you can taste, so grab a glass, amigo. Our tequila is your tequila. Our Casa is your Casa.
