“We love tequila…”

“We love tequila…”

We love tequila–on the rocks, by the shot, and at times, straight from the bottle. – George Clooney & Rande Gerber

Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks, (Isaiah 5:22)

Lesson:

God, ever the under-stater, looks at a world gone mad into sin and declares the obvious, woe.

Bonus:

Let us finish the scripture, because, drinking and injustice, to those lost in lies and numb to their miserable situation is a favorite mixed drink.

Indeed, there is a whole-lot-of-drinking that goes on in the legal system.

Whether for a bribe of a vote, bribe of pride or bribe of cronyism the guilty walk away and the innocent are ignored and justice is denied.2Washington State Bar Association, WSBA, Seattle, Washington State Bar Association 1325 Fourth Ave., Suite 600 Seattle, WA 98101-2539

Instead of denying self judges deny the rights of others for the miserably passing moment of selfish ambition.

Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks, who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent. (Isaiah 5:22-23)

1George Clooney is reportedly set to personally make up to $233 million after selling the premium tequila brand Casamigos for a whopping $1 billion. Diageo PLC, a British distiller of spirits, confirmed on Wednesday it will pay Clooney and his two business partners $700 million initially for the tequila company. An additional $300 million will also be paid depending on the brand’s performance over the next decade. The Hollywood star started Casamigos on a whim four years ago with Cindy Crawford’s entrepreneur husband Rande Gerber and real estate developer Mike Meldman. The trio is understood to have equal stakes in the brand with no outside investment, Forbes reports. The initial $700 million payout would mean up to $233 million pretax for each of the co-owners.

(dailymail.co.uk)—It’s a great month to be George Clooney. Two weeks ago, he became a father to twins. On Wednesday, British liquor giant Diageo announced it would purchase Casamigos, the tequila company he co-founded, for up to $1 billion.
The price tag includes an initial payout of $700 million, plus a further potential $300 million over the next decade based on the brand’s performance, according to Diageo. The deal is expected to close before year end, pending regulatory approval.
“If you asked us four years ago if we had a billion dollar company, I don’t think we would have said yes,” Clooney told CNBC. “But we’re not going anywhere. We’ll still be very much a part of Casamigos. Starting with a shot tonight. Maybe two.”
Founded in 2013 by actor and director Clooney, nightlife entrepreneur Rande Gerber and real estate tycoon Mike Meldman, the tequila initially began as a private selection for Gerber and Clooney’s acquaintances. But the pet project, which translates to “house of friends,” evolved into a legitimate business when they were forced to get a license to keep making the blue agave-derived drink.
