The intervened bottle is of Tequila 1800 White, which is born from the selection of white tequilas matured in a short period of time, from where it obtains its fresh and light character, in addition to obtaining its smoothness and light tone thanks to a carbon filtration process.
The colorful pop-surrealist style art of the renowned artist Okuda San Miguel has toured galleries, walls and cultural spaces around the world, breaking the borders imposed by different cultures and groups, by transmitting new emotions and feelings. Through his many trips, Okuda San Miguel aspires to make a positive impact on the people and communities he visits through his art.

In that sense, the fact of being able to take art from the galleries to take it to the streets, as we see in the iconic walls of Okuda San Miguel, is now magnified by being able to bring their art to the homes of collectors and tequila lovers : “Transforming these bottles is like being in 60 thousand houses, and that is the magic: transforming gray or colorless spaces into thousands of colors and brightening the lives of millions of people”, shares the creator born in Spain.
