The brace of new Tequilas are initially launching in Illinois, Texas and Michigan.

  • Available – From this month
  • Location – The US, available initially in selected states
  • Price – SRP of US$39.99 per 75cl bottle of the blanco, $44.99 for the reposado

El Bandido Yankee Tequila Co has announced its US debut with two expressions.

El Bandido Yankee Blanco and Reposado are both available now through the off-premise channel in Illinois, Michigan and Texas. The pair use blue weber agave and are additive-free.

Distribution for the expressions will be handled by Breakthru Beverage Group in Illinois and by Republic National Distributing Co in Michigan and Texas. The brand owner intends to extend the roll-out nationwide in the coming months.

“El Bandido’s essence is a passion to live boldly and share generously. It’s this ethos that drives us personally and professionally,” said Chris Chelios, a former ice hockey player who co-founded the company with retired American footballer James Robert Morris

Last month, Tequila Tepozan launched a three-strong additive-free Tequila range in the market.
