Kendall Jenner’s brand, 818 Tequila, has officially launched in Australia. yay!!

There are four tequila’s that fall under the 818 brand.

 818 Tequila Blanco is an ultra-smooth blend with a bright and crisp citrus finish, with notes of almond, key lime pie, and toasted coconut from after resting in French oak barrels for three weeks.

818 Tequila Reposado has a smooth caramel finish, with bolder notes of cooked agave and pecan pie after ageing in a blend of oak barrels for three months.

818 Tequila Añejo boasts a deep and complex, and rich flavour profile, with notes of orange peel, chocolate, and toffee from ageing for over a year in oak barrels. The 818 line is capped off with the stunning

Eight Reserve: a masterful blend of Añejos aged up to eight years in French and American barrels. It is bottled in a hand-crafted ceramic decanter and designed for ultimate enjoyment.

818 Tequila harvests their agave plants at peak maturity (after 6-7 years), before slow cooking each batch in traditional ovens for roughly 30 hours. Following traditional tahona wheel extraction, the spirit is naturally fermented before distillation inside alembic copper pot stills, and finally aged in American and French oak barrels. This dedication to traditional practices with a modern lens has earnt the tequila over 43 international tasting awards since its debut.

Kendall founded 818 Tequila with sustainability in mind from the very beginning. From the agaves they grow, to the production and labelling of each bottle, 818 Tequila is redefining the landscape of sustainable tequila practices. 818’s distillery is run on biomass and solar power to reduce carbon emissions, their bottles are made with recycled glass, and their paper products are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. Most recently, 818 was honoured to join the B Corporation™ community in March of 2023.
