818 Tequila is a brand that prides itself on working closely with local, family-owned farms in Jalisco, Mexico to deliver the smoothest most natural and best-tasting tequila possible. With a commitment to using only the highest quality ingredients, 818 Tequila ensures that every bottle embodies the essence of craftsmanship and authenticity. The ethos of 818 Tequila goes beyond just creating exceptional spirits. The brand recognizes the importance of sustainability and transparency throughout its supply chain. Taking inspiration from the area code 818, which represents their home, they also acknowledge that the earth is home to all of us. With this in mind, 818 Tequila places great emphasis on sourcing their agaves responsibly and ensuring the production process is environmentally friendly.

The journey of 818 Tequila begins with the skilled jimadores, local agave farmers from the Tequila region. These experts identify the optimal conditions for growing agaves in the Los Valles region, patiently waiting for at least 7 years until the agaves reach peak maturity. Once harvested, the agaves undergo a slow cooking process that lasts for over 30 hours. Large stone Tahonas, weighing 800 kilograms each, are then utilized to crush the cooked agaves. This age-old technique allows for the extraction and collection of the juice, preserving the authenticity and tradition of tequila production. The extracted juice, known as "mosto," then goes through a natural fermentation process. Unique wood and stainless steel tanks are utilized, and the fermentation is enriched by using leftover agave fibers from the tahonas. Native yeast is added to enhance the aromatic expression, resulting in a deeper and more nuanced flavor profile. The tequila is distilled in hand-built copper alembic pot stills of the highest quality. It undergoes a double distillation process, carefully monitoring the alcohol volume to achieve the desired smoothness that 818 Tequila is known for. To further enhance the character of the tequila, it is aged in superior oak barrels. The Reposado and Añejo expressions are aged in both American and French oak, allowing for a harmonious fusion of flavors. Expert blending techniques ensure that each bottle of 818 Tequila embodies the iconic taste that the brand is celebrated for - smooth, versatile and sippable.

818 Tequila Blanco 700ml is a remarkable expression that showcases the brand's dedication to crafting exceptional tequila. With its brilliant platinum colour and light body, it entices the senses from the moment it is poured. On the nose, aromas of lemongrass, mild floral elements, chamomile and light minerality create an inviting bouquet. These delicate scents set the stage for the tasting experience to come. The palate is greeted with a delightful combination of sweet agave and vanilla flavors. These notes are complemented by undertones of tropical and citrus fruit, adding a vibrant and refreshing dimension to the tequila. The taste is a harmonious balance of sweetness and fruitiness, creating a truly enjoyable sipping experience. As the journey continues, the finish of 818 Tequila Blanco is ultra-smooth and bright. It leaves a crisp impression on the palate, with lingering notes of almond, key lime pie and toasted coconut. These flavors add depth and complexity to the overall profile, making each sip a memorable one. What makes 818 Tequila Blanco 700ml special is its resting period in oak barrels. This process imparts a fresh vanilla roundness to the tequila, enhancing its flavour profile and adding a touch of smoothness to the finish.
