Don’t make pour decisions this National Tequila Day, Drink 818 Tequila!
According to the Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA), tequila sales have almost doubled in value in UK supermarkets in the last two years, with sales up by 83% compared to pre-covid. Consumers have shifted their drinking habits and are increasingly opting for a better-quality and super-premium tequila’s such as those made from 100% blue agave.
A tequila which perfectly embodies this growth? 818 Tequila – the award-winning spirit from Model and Entrepreneur Kendall Jenner which has recently launched in the UK. Working closely with local, family-owned farms in Jalisco, Mexico, 818 Tequila is carefully crafted from 100% Blue Weber Agave, and available in three expressions at different costs, Blanco (£48) Reposado (£56) and Añejo (£65).
