We originally created a line of bitters for use at a local bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans. With mounting pressure from the folks behind Tales of the Cocktail and our fellow local bartenders we decided to create an organization that provided bartenders and consumers with what they wanted.
At El Guapo we only use whole ingredients. No extracts, no essential oils, and no artificial flavorings are added to any of our products. We extract concentrated flavor from fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. We source all ingredients locally grown (New Orleans) if available. Other items are chosen as close as we can find to ensure the most regional product we can make.
El Guapo Bitters donates that 10% of profits to the Semper Fi Fund for injured Marines.
