On Thursday 1st October, an exclusive invitation was extended to us to join the founders of Casamigos Tequila, Rande Gerber, George Clooney and Mike Meldman, as they hosted the official London launch of Casamigos Tequila and Cindy Crawford’s new book ‘Becoming’.


“Brought To You By Those Who Drink It”, the smoothest tequila was shared and enjoyed amongst friends of the founders, as well as notable names in British film, music, business, fashion, art and literature. The who’s who of London were hosted at The Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair where 250 guests celebrated the launch of Casamigos Tequila in London and Cindy Crawford’s personal and professional evolution as one of the world’s most iconic supermodels. Attendees observed never-before-published photographs from Cindy’s private collection and heard untold stories from the book, whilst enjoying a selection of bespoke cocktails created with the award-wining Casamigos Tequila, including the Casamigos Three Amigos, Casamigos Old Fashioned and Casamigos Sour.

Cindy Crawford dazzled in a black and white structured Victoria Beckham dress and was seen catching up with the fashion pack Giancarlo Giametti and Mario Testino.

The great and the good from Hollywood’s finest directing pedigree were in attendance, including Joel Silver, Mike Figgis and Eric Fellner, all seen catching up with fellow director George Clooney, Mr Selfridge star Jeremy Piven and Downton Abbey actor Allen Leech.

VIP attendees included: George Clooney, Rande Gerber, Michael Meldman, Cindy Crawford, Lewis Hamilton, Mario Testino, Giancarlo Giametti, Joel Silver, Laura Bailey & Eric Fellner, Allen Leech, Jeremy Piven, Noel Gallagher & Sara McDonald, Hermione Norris, David Furnish, Mike Figgis, Rosey Chan, Tamara Beckwith, Sir David Tang, Melissa Odabash, Amber Nuttell, Ali Spencer-Churchill, Plum Sykes, Matthew Freud, Ben Elliot, Tim & Malin Jeffries.
