El Bandito has joined an elite club of UK bars to become recognised as an official ‘Del Maguey Single Village Mezcaleria’ tequileria.
This latest accolade makes it one of only two bars in Liverpool to hold such a prestigious status, strongly affirming El Bandito as the best place in town to enjoy tequila – whether that’s straight up, or in one of the many cocktails from the extensive drinks menu.
To gain recognition as an official mezcaleria, bars must stock the complete range of Del Maguey’s mezcals. Mezcal is a drink referred to as ‘the mother of tequila’ and the Del Maguey collection represents its true heritage as one of the finest and purest spirits in the world. Every establishment rewarded with the Del Maguey accolade receives a blue plaque, which is proudly on show at the entrance of El Bandito.
El Bandito have recently returned from London after a successful takeover of Notting Hill’s favourite Tiki Den, Trailer Happiness. The Slater Street tequileria have also started a 3-month residency in the upstairs terrace bar at Wahaca, Liverpool One.
