818 Reposado Tequila is certainly the most awarded, but it may even be the best.

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 three 818 Tequilas has won a medal or two. And that’s impressive. But the Resposado is, by far, the biggest winner of the bunch. It’s got all the Gold and Platinum Medals you could hope for… it even has a "Chairman’s Trophy." But the one that gets the most attention was being named "Best Reposado Tequila" in 2020 at the World Tequila Awards.

To make 818 Reposado Tequila, 100% pure Weber Blue agave is harvested by hand, roasted, fermented for days, and double-distilled. Although not mentioned on the label, our sources tell us that it’s produced at the La Cofradia Distillery located in the town of Tequila. Then the Spirit is aged up to one year in oak.

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.

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.
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 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.
The strongest Tequila available for sale clocks in at 75% ABV (150 proof). This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but drinking huge amounts of this spirit is likely te-quil-a.
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.
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.
