818 Tequila and Compartés Chocolatier Launch Must-Have Gift For the Holiday Season

818 Tequila, the award-winning Tequila brand founded by Kendall Jenner, and Compartés Chocolatier, the famed LA-based chocolate purveyor, have partnered to create an exclusive chocolate bar for the holidays, available for purchase starting today.


The partnership was inspired by both brands’ dedication to quality ingredients and focus on life’s celebratory moments. The chocolate bar, aptly named Toffee and Tequila, is the first-ever to be infused with Tequila for Compartés and features a milk chocolate base with bits of toffee and rounded out by flecks of sea salt. The bar is infused with 818’s award-winning Tequila Reposado, whose hints of vanilla and caramel pair perfectly to enhance the sweet and salty flavors in the chocolate.


As the fastest-growing spirits category in the US, Tequila is no longer just for summer margaritas. Now, Tequila fans and chocolate aficionados have a new way to enjoy this delectable flavor combination in a tasty chocolate bar this holiday.


The design of the bar highlights the agaves and landscape of Amatitán, Mexico, where 818 is produced. The chocolate bar retails for $9.95 and is available now at compartes.com.


“We are thrilled to partner with Compartes to create this Toffee & Tequila chocolate bar this holiday season,” said Kendall Jenner, founder of 818 Tequila. “As tequila continues to grow in popularity, this collaboration showcases how perfect our delicious 818 Reposado is both for gifting and for gathering with people you love.”


“We are so excited to debut Compartés’ tequila-infused chocolate bar in collaboration with our friends at 818 Tequila,” said Jonathan Grahm, Compartés Creative Director and Chief Chocolate-Maker. “Handmade using the highest quality ingredients just like our chocolates, 818 felt like the perfect natural fit to partner with on these deliciously decadent tequila-infused chocolates that’ll make for the most memorable gift this holiday season…this toffee and tequila bar is warming, festive and evokes thoughts of a magical holiday eve in each bite.”


Available just in time for the holiday season, the Toffee and Tequila chocolate bar is meant to be enjoyed alongside 818 Reposado with friends and family.
