818 Blanco Tequila has a lovely, herb-and-florals aroma and a creamy palate that just might turn your head.

So, what do you do if you are a super-famous celebrity and your entire family is famous for being famous and you want to expand your famous empire into Tequila? Well, if you’re Kendall Jenner, you secretly work with partners to source premium Spirit, bottle it up and send it to a few competitions in secret under a mysterious company name registered in Delaware — K and Soda LLC. Then, when you get some positive reviews and even win a medal or two, you turn it loose on the world as 818 Tequila. And we can see from the trademark filings that they have additional beverages on the way.


All premium Tequila brands begin at Blanco. 818 Blanco Tequila is made right from the start — which means 100% pure Weber Blue agave from the central valleys of Jalisco. The piñas are roasted and fermented for days. Then distilled and bottled in small batches at 40% ABV. This clean-sipping Mexican dram was just released to millions of fans eager to snag a sample. But it is the glowing reviews by the industry press that speak to the quality of the Spirit.

Smartass Corner:
The "818" comes from the telephone area code of Calabasas, California — the Los Angeles suburb where Kendall and her famously famous siblings were raised.

Tequila is made from one type of agave, Blue agave. Each of these plants takes at least 6 years, more likely a year or two longer to mature.
There are over 136 species of Agave. For Tequila to be officially called “Tequila,” it must be comprised of at least 51% of the Blue Weber Agave species.
In general, price of Tequila goes up with age, so añejos and extra añejos will be the most expensive and blancos the cheapest.
Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.

Tequila goes bad with time! Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidation and evaporation diminish the quality of the Tequila and destroy the Agave flavor profile.

Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.
Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged tequila.
Tequila is like Champagne or Cognac. It has a Denomination of Origin, meaning it can only be produced in the Jalisco State, Mexico.
