1800 Tequila has been named the Official Tequila of the Las Vegas Raiders and Allegiant Stadium. “The brand continues to support professional sports and the Hispanic community in Las Vegas and California by bringing the best taste in tequila to gamedays with the ultimate tailgate experience and signature cocktails for fans to enjoy,” read a press release.
Both brands have roots in Las Vegas and California, and with the collaboration look “to bring the best taste in tequila to gamedays.” To celebrate, 1800 Tequila is unifying Raider Nation in a way befitting of its Vegas hometown. 1800 Tequila invites Raider Nation to join them in the Allegiant Stadium concourse to enjoy the ‘Married to the Game’ ultimate tailgate hosted by Raiders superfan Josephine Skriver. The 1800 Tequila ‘Married to the Game’ tailgate will take place before the home game on January 9th and raise a celebratory glass to the union of Raiders fans from all over the world.
1800 Tequila also created two specialty cocktails to celebrate its partnership with the Las Vegas Raiders and Allegiant Stadium: the 1800 Mexican Mule Rusher (1800 Blanco, fresh lime juice, bitters and ginger beer) and the 1800 Pirate Paloma (1800 Cristalino, light agave, grapefruit bitters and soda water). These cocktails may be enjoyed at home by purchasing 1800 Tequila and following the recipe on the brand’s official website.
“We’re thrilled to welcome fans to Allegiant Stadium as the Las Vegas Raiders’ Official Tequila Partner,” says Lander Otegui, SVP Marketing for Proximo Spirits. “Raider Nation is a diverse and ardent fan base, which reflects 1800 Tequila’s values of authenticity and community. We raise a glass of 1800 Pirate Paloma to celebrate our partnership with Allegiant Stadium and the Raiders.”
1800 Tequila is available at select retailers in Las Vegas and nationwide.
In August 2020, 1800 Tequila unveiled their newest expression, 1800 Cristalino. The new ultra-premium bottling from the high end spirits maker is a crystal-clear anejo that has been finished in Port wine barrels.
