El Bandido Yankee is unwavering in its quest to bring tequila lovers an outrageously delicious, ultra premium bit of heaven at a price point that’s just as palatable. Authentically crafted from the finest blue weber agave, El Bandido tequilas are all natural and 100% additive-free as established by Tequila Matchmaker’s Confirmed Additive-Free program. Informed by centuries of craftsmanship, our master distiller delivers a full-bodied taste that ignites your bandido spirit to create memorable moments with friends.

El Bandido's tequila is meticulously handmade at the historic El Viejito Distillery in Atotonilco El Alto, Jalisco. They have great respect for the tequila making traditions of the treasured region and fully support the small farms and agave sustainability efforts. El Bandido tequila is confirmed additive-free, a claim not many tequilas can make. For bandidos, it means you enjoy the sacred blue weber agave in all its glory.
