Sandinista is a tequila reposado flavored with lime, sriracha, and a proprietary blend of spices. We created a new category of highly differentiated tequila. Designed from the ground up to be highly scalable and sustainable, our suppliers and distributors have national and international capacity. Our organic tequila is kosher and distilled in small batches.
Our Story

Legend has it, in the late 90s, a bartender in St. Louis, Missouri named Doug Morgan concocted what everyone in town considered “the bartender’s shot”. Mixology wasn’t yet popular at the time, and he was tired of serving the same old sweet shots. So, he decided to experiment with a few ingredients from the kitchen. A combination of Tequila Reposado, Sriracha hot sauce, lime and an imaginative spice blend created what would become known among St Louis bartenders as… the Sandinista shot! Bartenders would say, “It makes you feel like a Nicaraguan revolutionary!”, referring to the spirit of the 1930’s Nicaraguan uprising. As Doug Morgan remembers, the Clash album, ‘Sandinista!’ was playing on repeat the night the drink was created. The legendary flavored tequila drink left its mark in the hearts and minds of local St. Louisans, and thus, the inspiration for Sandinista Tequila was born.
Our Ambition

Our brand strives for sustainability in production as well as packaging. Our bottle is designed to fit in the well behind the bar with an easy peel off label that allows bartenders to repurpose the bottle as a container for mixers and simple syrups. Each case of Sandinista Tequila features eight pop out cardboard coasters and our bottle label can be upcycled into a sticker.
