The Milwuakee Bucks are to offer George Clooney’s Casamigos Tequila at the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center home for the upcoming NBA season.
Under the agreement, Casamigos Tequila has become the official ultra-premium tequila partner of the basketball franchise and its new home arena.
Clooney’s firm will serve “specialty cocktails” made with its ultra-premium tequila at all events held at the WESC and will have branded drink carts in the arena.
The carts will serve customers cocktails along with handmade guacamole and house-baked tortilla chips.
Casamigos co-founder and acting legend Clooney said: “All of us at Casamigos are thrilled to welcome the Milwaukee Bucks and their new arena to our House of Friends. We wish the Milwaukee Bucks and everyone involved in the organisation all the best for great success in their fabulous new home.”
Scheduled to open this autumn, the new WESC venue will replace BMO Harris Bradley Center as the Bucks’ new 17,500-capacity arena.
Last month it was reported that demand for Milwaukee Bucks season tickets hit an all-time high for its first season in its new home.
Lee Einsidler, chief executive of Casamigos Spirits Company, said: “Their (Bucks) fans will be sure to enjoy the Milwaukee Margarita featuring Casamigos Blanco, the 3-Point Paloma featuring Casamigos Reposado, a host of other delicious Casamigos cocktails, and of course enjoying Casamigos on the rocks. Casamigos is excited to be part of the fabulous experience that this new world-class venue will bring to the city of Milwaukee, and all of the people in the great state of Wisconsin.”
