About 818 Tequila
Founded by Kendall Jenner, 818 Tequila works closely with local, family-owned farms in Jalisco, Mexico to bring you the smoothest, most natural, and best tasting tequila possible. Only the highest quality ingredients are used in its creation.
Our award-winning expressions are recognized for their smooth and complex flavor profiles. Our production process is completely traditional: carefully-selected 100% Blue Weber agaves are slow cooked in ovens for over thirty hours, crushed in stone Tahona pits, fermented for over forty hours, and then twice distilled in copper alembic pot stills. The result is a smoothness you’ll have to drink to believe.
The area code 818 is home to Kendall, but the earth is home to all of us. So, from the agaves we grow, to the production of the bottle, sustainability and transparency of our supply chain is our core focus. We are a Certified B Corporation™, verified for meeting high standards of social and environmental impact. We've had so many magical nights drinking 818 and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
