Thompson previously spoke about why Mexico has captured her heart. "I was a culinary professional who enjoyed Italian food when I started working in a Mexican kitchen," she shared.

"That opened my eyes to a different culture and a cuisine that really spoke to me," she continued. "Each region is so specific; the food in Mexico City is totally different from what you'll enjoy in Oaxaca, and they’re both amazing. My goal is to take the best of the country's cuisine and then elevate it. When you eat here, I want you to recognize Mexico's fantastic flavors, with a bit of surprise as well."

For her part, Jenner started 818 Tequila in 2021.

“For almost 4 years I've been on a journey to create the best tasting tequila. After dozens of blind taste tests, trips to our distillery, entering into world tasting competitions anonymously and WINNING,” Jenner wrote at the time. “3.5 years later I think we've done it! This is all we've been drinking for the last year and I can't wait for everyone else to get their hands on this to enjoy it as much as we do!”
