Kendall Jenner’s much discussed 818 Tequila has finally hit the shelves, but where can you find it?
First off, if you’re outside of California, you’re going to have to wait. The new agave offering is only selling in the Golden State for the time being. Throughout 2021, Southern Glazer’s, who nabbed the distribution deal, will be rolling the tequila out through the United States. There’s been no word yet on when the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia, or Australia will receive the spirits.
As for those who happen to be in California, the first place to check is the official 818 Tequila website. However, if it happens to be sold out there, you might want to give a call to your local BevMo, Target, Total Wine and More, or Ralph’s. If you happen to be in Los Angeles and are looking to buy it from a local purveyor, Mel and Rose on Melrose might be your best option.
The 818 portfolio includes three variations:
- 818 Tequila Blanco – Ultra smooth with undertones of tropical and citrus fruit and long finish.
- 818 Tequila Reposado – Ripe, roasted agave flavors complimented with a touch of vanilla from oak aging and a classic, smooth finish.
- 818 Tequila Añejo – More complexity of vanilla and spice from longer barrel aging with a rich, smooth, finish.
Speaking about her distribution deal with Southern Glazer’s, Kendall said, “I’m incredibly proud of the product we have created with our team in Mexico and am honored that they have joined us on this journey. Their mentorship and support are important as we build 818 into one of the world’s leading tequila brands. That’s why I am so thrilled to work with Southern Glazer’s and their outstanding sales teams to help introduce these tequilas to both off and on-premise customers. I’m excited for more people to be able to try it in the coming months.”
As Kendall Jenner’s 818 Tequila becomes sold more broadly across the nation, we’ll keep you updated with where to find the spirit.
