Kendall Jenner is launching her own brand of tequila.
The 25-year-old model and reality star has unveiled her very own tequila, named 818, after working on the product for the past four years.
And Kendall’s tequila – which is named after the area code in Calabasas – is already an award-winning beverage, despite not yet being available on the market, after she and her team submitted it to world tasting competitions anonymously.
Posting on Instagram, Kendall wrote: “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! 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 (sic)”
Alongside the post, Kendall shared a series of images including one which listed the accolades bestowed upon the 818 brand – which comes in Resposado, Añejo, and Blanco varieties – such as Triple Gold at the MicroLiquor Spirit Awards, the Platinum Award at the SIP Awards, and the Chairman’s Trophy at the Ultimate Spirit Awards.
Following the announcement, members of Kendall’s famous family took to the comments section to show their support.
Her half-sister Kim Kardashian West wrote: “So proud of you! I wasn’t a drinker until I tried 818. Tequila shots all day!!! (sic)”
Whilst Kylie Jenner added: “KENDALL!!!!! yes!!! i’ve seen all the hard work and LOVE you’ve put into 818!!! and u did it .. the best tequila !!! proud of u (sic)”
And Kendall’s mother, Kris Jenner, used her momager prowess to urge everyone to give the liquor’s official Instagram account a follow.
The 65-year-old matriarch wrote: “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!! (sic)”
As of the time of writing, it’s not known when 818 Tequila will be available to the public, or how much a bottle will cost.
