Whether you enjoy the taste of Kendall Jenner’s infamous 818 tequila, which hit the market in the spring of last year and was criticized quite immediately for its appropriation of Mexican culture, its selection of merch has undoubtedly fueled its popularity. Signature trucker hats, opulent-looking sweatshirts and heavy-duty coolers are just some of the brand’s creations, but the latest drop caught our eye. To celebrate the arrival of the Añejo Reserve, 818 has released a handmade ceramic decanter created by Milan-based industrial designer Valerio Sommella and produced by local artisans in Pachuca, Mexico, the city where the alcohol is stored. The flowing shape of the Eight Reserve reimagines the typical glass vessel of the 818, while the tequila continues the brand’s efforts to achieve a fluid expression.
After admiring the liquid (and unlabeled) shape of the container, we realized it bears a striking resemblance to a product we’ve seen many times before: H&M Home’s circular ceramic vase. With a cut-out center, the barrel (available in two sizes, starting at $17) essentially looks like an Eight Reserve bottle cut in half. And while you may not be able to turn it into a tasty tangy margarita, the H&M find would make an equally artsy addition to your bar cart.
The great thing about both objects, of course, is that you can eventually fill them with fresh flowers (however, if you want to keep anything alive in the 818, you’ll have to make quite a few cocktails first). Whether yours contains dried pampas grass or rich tequila, your home is sure to benefit from this organic touch.
