If you were worried that there weren’t enough celebrities with tequilas brands, then take heart, as model and ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ star Kendall Jenner has launched her own tequila.
In an Instagram post, Jenner explained her four-year journey to release her new brand 818. In the caption she said “For almost four years I’ve been on a journey to create the best tasting Tequila. After dozens of blind taste tests, trips to our distillery, entering into world tasting competitions anonymously and WINNING (🥳) ..3.5 years later I think we’ve done it!
“This is all we’ve been drinking for the last year and I can’t wait for everyone else to get their hands on this to enjoy it as much as we do! @drinks818 coming soon 🥃🤤.”
Although yet to be released, Jenner explains that the range will comprise three variants: 818 Blanco, 818 Reposado, and 818 Añejo.
Each bottled at 40% ABV, the Tequilas are said to be made from 100% Agave Azul and are made in small batches in Jalisco, Mexico. Each expression is limited to 436 bottles per batch, according to the labels.
