“For almost 4 years i’ve been on a journey to create the best tasting tequila,” she wrote under a series of pics and videos on social media. “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!
She continued, “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 🥃🤤”
The IG slideshow included a video of herself doing a taste test, which seemingly led to a final approval of her upcoming product. Throughout the rest of the slideshow are also photos of her and friends drinking the spirit and photos of a bunch of harvested agave plants.
This announcement comes after speculation from fans, who noticed “818” bottles in the back of photos from Kendall’s recent vacation in Mexico. Turns out, they were right.
