Kendall Jenner is getting into spirits.
The 25-year-old model announced she’s launching a new tequila brand, 818 Tequila that’s several years in the making.
In addition, Kendall revealed that the brand has always anonymously won tasting competitions — including the World Tequila Awards — before going public.
“For almost 4 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!” Kendall wrote in the post. “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! @drink818 coming soon ??”
In the Instagram post, Jenner Kendall the scorecard from the Ultimate Spirits Challenge competition — and according to the judge, it was “the greatest tasting tequila of 2020.”
“We don’t know what it looks like, who makes it, or how to get our hands on a bottle,” the scorecard says. “By all means, if you can get your hands on a bottle, definitely do. Then slide a glass our way. “
Kris Jenner tweeted her excitement about her daughter’s new venture shortly after the Instagram announcement. “Kenny! I am so so proud of you and the years of work and love you’ve put in to @drink818!! So excited for this!!! Everyone go follow @drink818 NOW!!” she wrote.
818 Tequila, which seems to be named after the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s hometown area code, features three varieties — Blanco, Anejo, and Reposado.
While we don’t have much info on when it will be available, but it should be “soon.”
