The bar at Le Bristol was the place to be in Paris when Kendall Jenner launched her award-winning 818 Tequila on February 27.  

Anyone who couldn’t make the party at the exclusive hotel, on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré (or weren’t invited), can try 818 Tequila and Eight Reserve for themselves at key luxury venues in the capital, including Le Bristol, Gigi Paris Italian restaurant in the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Vecchio au Perchoir Italian restaurant in the 11th, neo-brewery and Mediterranean restaurant Malro in the Marais, and Mamamia Paris on Rue Vernet. 

Ahead of the launch, Jenner said: “I’m thrilled that 818 has officially arrived in Paris. It’s a city that is so beautiful and close to my heart. I can’t wait to sip 818 Tequila whenever I’m in town!” 

Named after the star’s area code in Calabasas, California, 818 Tequila is available in three expressions – Blanco (€55), Reposado (€75), and Añejo (€85) – plus there’s the Eight Reserve, a blend of Añejo and Extra Añejo tequila aged up to eight years, which costs €250. 

The tequila is made at a family-owned distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. Each blend is carefully crafted from 100% Blue Weber Agave, handpicked by skilled agave farmers from the lowlands and highlands of Jalisco. The agaves are slow-cooked for over 30 hours, then crushed using traditional large tahona wheels, made from volcanic rock. Next, they undergo a 48-hour natural fermentation process before they are twice-distilled in alembic copper pot stills and then aged in French and American oak barrels. It can be drunk neat, on the rocks, or in cocktails such as Margaritas and Old Fashioneds. 

If you fancy picking some up while you’re in the capital, 818 Tequila is available from Les Caves du Roy, on Rue Simart  in the 18th, and La Maison du Whiskey.
