A select few celebrities have been investing in alcohol brands, a trend which will likely surge in popularity after the whopping success of stars like George Clooney and Ryan Reynolds.
Now Kendall Jenner is getting in on the game. The 25-year-old model announced her 818 Tequila brand on Instagram, which she says has been a few years in the making. The brand has already anonymously won tasting competitions for a variety of categories, plus the Ultimate Spirits Challenge competition called it "the greatest tasting tequila of 2020."
"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!" Jenner wrote. "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!"
