George Clooney Sold His Tequila Company For $1 Billion Because There’s Nothing He Doesn’t Do Well

It’s no secret that George Clooney really has it all in this life. He’s managed to have a successful career in Hollywood, he’s considered one of the best looking men ever and he married a beautiful and successful woman.

On top of all that, he welcomed two adorable twins into this world. Is it even possible for him to do something more that could make us envy him just a little bit more? Apparently, this is possible for George Clooney.

Not a lot of people may know this, but the actor and his friends founded one of the fastest-growing tequila brands in the world back in 2013. The company is called Casamigos and it was just sold for $1 billion.

The transaction is set to close during the second half of 2017 according to Business Insider. The company was purchased by British booze giant Diageo.

Maxim reports that Clooney never expected this level of success when he first started the company. It was a passion project of his, and one that he took on with a partner and friend. 

He said that if someone had asked him “four years ago if we had a billion dollar company. I don’t think we would have said yes. This reflects Diageo’s belief in our company and our belief in Diageo.”

His statement continued, saying: “We’re not going anywhere. We’ll still be very much a part of Casamigos. Starting with a shot tonight. Maybe two.”
