1800 Tequila Celebrates 10th Anniversary Of Essential 1800 Artists Series With Okuda San Miguel Collaboration
1800 Tequila, the world’s most awarded tequila line, celebrates the 10th anniversary of its Essential 1800 Artists Series, featuring a collaboration with world-renowned Spanish artist Okuda San Miguel. By selecting one of the most recognized contemporary artists as the latest in its decade-long art project, 1800 Tequila continues to use its bottle as a canvas to bring art and culture to tequila-lovers across the United States.
The Essential 1800 Artists Series 10th anniversary collection features six limited-edition bottles displaying original Pop Surrealism works by Okuda. His distinctive style of colorful geometric patterns featuring his signature Rainbow Skull and Kaos Star, encourages reflections of origin, destiny and the meaning of life, hinting that time is our most precious asset. To move the experience from bottle to virtual, this year’s Essential 1800 Artists Series innovates with an AR experience that transforms each bottle into a Snapchat marker, launching an eye-catching and unique filter for fans to engage with Okuda-themed lenses.
The Essential 1800 Artists Series, now in its 10th year of working with artists and their estates, such as Shantell Martin, Enoc Perez, Basquiat and Haring, creates cultural conversations by giving artists an alternative canvas to reach new audiences, turning limited-edition bottles of 1800 Silver Tequila into instant collector’s items. This year, 1800 Tequila debuts a 30-second film showcasing Okuda’s artworks in various neighborhoods of New York City, highlighting how art is born from the streets and transforms through time.
Tequila Herradura Launches Legend, a First-of-Its-Kind Tequila
Tequila Herradura is expanding its ultra-premium portfolio with the launch of Tequila Herradura Legend, a first-of-its- kind Añejo tequila that showcases Herradura’s sophistication in tequila production and barrel making. The ultra-premium tequila will be a permanent expression in the portfolio, available in select U.S. markets this month.
Tequila Herradura Legend is made from the finest 100% blue agave, naturally fermented, distilled and then matured for 14 months in heavily charred, new American White Oak barrels. Casa Herradura is currently the only major tequila distillery that produces its own barrels to ensure the highest quality product, and these unique barrels have been deeply grooved, exposing the tequila to more layers of toasted oak as it patiently ages. This process results in a special Añejo tequila with an incredibly rich, deep color and a luxurious, velvety smooth taste.
Tequila Herradura Legend also marks the first release under a new generation of Casa Herradura’s female legacy. Karinna Enriquez Hurtado currently serves as Master Taster at the historic Casa Herradura in Amatitán, Mexico and joins a decades long heritage of women leading Tequila Herradura from barrel to bottle.
