Shaken then poured over ice, this is the perfect drink to celebrate World Margarita Day.

Founded by Kendall Jenner, 818 Tequila Blanco is made using 100% Blue Weber agave from family-owned farms in Jalisco. The agave is hand-picked by Jimadores and cooked in traditional brick ovens. It is aged in American & French oak barrels. The taste is of sweet agave and vanilla, with undertones of tropical and citrus fruit. It is brilliant platinum in colour with a light body. The aroma is one of lemongrass, mild floral elements and chamomile. The finish is ultra-smooth that is bright and crispy. There are notes of almond, lime and toasted coconut. What is makes this tequila special is that it has rested in oak barrels for a fresh vanilla roundness.
