Overview


A reposado that embodies the Spirit of Liberation®



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.


the problem



Consumers want better, more enticing ready-to-drink options


Bartenders and consumers are constantly looking to explore new cocktails and drinking options. Many desire the more complex, exciting serves, but are not necessarily wanting to invest the time or effort in making it. Most flavored liquors are overly sweetened and made of low quality ingredients.

The Solution


Sandinista is an exciting and refreshing option that can be consumed in a variety of ways


The ready-to-drink (RTD) category has exploded with options, but none of these quite compare to our 80-proof spirit that can be taken as a shot, enjoyed on the rocks or used with a simple mixer, to take your cocktail experience to the next level. Sandinista also allows consumers to create their own unique spins on simple classic cocktails like the margarita, bloody maria and even an Old Fashioned.

Our tequila-based spirit exhibits a smooth, semi-sweet upfront with a spicy kick at the end. Notes of citrus round out the taste profile making it refreshing and sessionable. Sandinista is delicious not only as a shot.  As the smoothest, 80 proof spiced tequila in the market, it is one of the most versatile cocktail base spirits around. Its complex flavor profile allows bartenders to create intricate cocktails using basic ingredients. 


FARMING AND PROCESS


Our 100% blue weber agave tequila is organically grown, certified Kosher, and naturally flavored.  The agave is farmed deep in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. After maturing for seven years, the agave hearts are brought to our solar powered distillery to be crafted. The tequila is aged for four months in virgin French oak casks. We then take our premium organic tequila and combine it with all-natural flavors of sriracha, lime and our secret spice blend. 


Our distillery is the oldest in Guadalajara, Mexico, owned by the Garcia family since 1943, and makers of some of the finest tequilas in the world.  Our production process from the distillery to the agave fields is completely organic, completely sustainable.  Our agave is harvested the old-fashioned way by jimadors and mules.  We compost all of the leftover agave to produce our own organic soil.  





Traditional Autoclave Distillation Process


The agave pinas are slow cooked in an autoclave for 16 hours, cooking evenly through the heart of the agave.  Our distiller uses a traditional process dating back to 1943. First applying steam to the agaves, then a purge, which allows the dust and wax to run off the outside of the cut pinas. 


After additional cooking, another purge is done to allow the bitter juice to exit, followed by 5 more hours of steam after a long and slow cooking, with the heat already present in the autoclave. The result is a tequila with a cleaner, very crisp finish with raw agave notes.



OUR FOUNDING INVESTOR PARTNERS INCLUDE SOME OF THE WORLD’S BEST ACTION SPORTS ATHLETES 


Our product branding is driven by the belief that action sports and action sports athletes are the catalyst behind the meteoric growth of many drink brands including Red Bull, Rockstar, and Monster Energy. We believe Sandinista is the first liquor/spirit to unite the tribes of action sports, live music and street art.



We created a program that exchanges equity in our company for endorsement partnerships with many of the world's top professional snowboarders, musicians, and artists. The accomplishments of our riders include multiple X Games medalists, US Open Championships, and the coveted Transworld Snowboarding Rider of the Year award. Our Riders have an ownership interest in the company and promote Sandinista with the goal of growing the brand. 






SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION AND PACKAGING


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. 

THE Market



The demand for tequila-based drinks is ever-growing, as they are favored by US consumers 


The tequila category has been increasing at a rate of 9% every year for the last three years and has gained even more momentum during the pandemic, with sales continuing to impress at retail and ecommerce platforms (Source). Tequila is the “favorite liquor base for cocktails in the US”, by 44% (Source) and the category is forecasted to continue to grow, having been highlighted as the next category to watch (Source). 



Consumers are demanding more sophisticated blends of hot spice and flavor (Source) and bartenders are increasingly seeking brands that are mixable yet unique and allow for experimentation.


TEQUILA COMPANIES ARE SELLING AT MULTIPLES AS HIGH AS 20X ON ANNUAL REVENUES


While most company acquisitions are calculated on annual net profit, tequila brands are currently selling on multiples of top line revenue. Casamigos tequila recently sold in 2017 at a 20X multiple on tip line revenue.


The massive sales of alcohol companies are expanding to soft drink companies as evidenced by Energy drink maker Monster Beverage Corp entering the alcoholic drinks market through a $330 million deal for craft beer and hard seltzer producer CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective LLC. 


Aviation Gin Company and Davos Brands, co-owned by actor Ryan Reynolds, sold for $610 million in 2020.  The actor became a partner in the Portland, Oregon-based Gin company just two years before the sale.  Where other alcohol companies utilize celebrities to develop their brands, Sandinista captures the tribes of action sports athletes, musicians, and artists who work with us to grow the brand as their own.  


 

our traction


Uniting the tribes of action sports, live music, and street art with our award-winning sriracha tequila


Our tequila is the first sriracha flavored tequila on the market. We are gold medal winners of the 2020 SIP awardsthe only internationally recognized consumer judging spirits competition.    


Through partnerships with former U.S. Snowboard team member Luke Mitrani, Sandinista was featured back-stage at multiple major snowboard and events, including the 2021 X Games and the 2020 Burton US Snowboard Open. 


In keeping with the spirit of Red Bull’s original grassroots guerilla marketing campaign, Sandinista is launching the brand by creating exposure through action sports and music festivals.  


Our October and November events included Chad Otterstrom’s Summer is Dead party at RMU Breckenridge, the Stimulus movie premier at Brooklyn’s Tavern and the Haunted Hacienda at Mi Chola Aspen. We will be featured at multiple Winter X-Games Parties.  We are available on-menu and as a “To Go Cocktail”  at the bottom of Gondola 1 in Vail at 7 Hermits Brewery.  






NOTABLE ON PREMISE COLORADO LOCATIONS 


In a brief one month period, our sales team has secured on-menu placements at a number of the most notable mountain restaurants and bars of Vail, Aspen, and Breckenridge.  



OUR BUSINESS MODEL


We signed a national distribution contract with Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC), the second largest liquor/spirit distributor in the United States. Our distribution network gives us a significant competitive advantage above other craft spirits who rely on a network of smaller, regionally based distributors. Our contract with RNDC grants RNDC the exclusive right to distribute our product within their entire footprint within the USA. The contract currently covers Colorado and as we ramp up production we anticipate expanding distribution under the contract to up to 32 other states.  


Park Street Imports, LLC (“Park Street”)  is our supplier and importer for all 50 states in the USA. We currently have a distribution agreement for on and off-premise sales in Florida, New York, New Jersey, and California with Park Street. 


what we do


Delivering one-of-a-kind tequila to consumers, through partnerships with the action sports and music festival community


Sandinista Tequila is a collaboration between a group of former bartenders, professional snowboarders, and the oldest distillery in Guadalajara, Mexico. Sandinista is crafted to be the smoothest spiced tequila in the world, using a proprietary recipe of organic spices and flavors. Carefully distilled in small batches using the finest blue weber agave, the tequila is aged for 4 months in virgin, flame charred, French White Oak casks. 



We focus our marketing efforts on supporting and connecting our target market through grassroots music festivals and action sports event sponsorships. We capitalize on social media by creating a brand that directly speaks to its consumer base. We are planting seeds to create a critical mass of synergy between our tequila and action sports, with an initial emphasis on snowboarding and skateboarding. 



SCALABLE AND SUSTAINABLE 


Sandinista Tequila is fundraising right now because we see an amazing opportunity to create a new category of highly differentiated tequila.  Our company is assembled and designed to be both sustainable and scalable.  We have brand partnerships with major distributors and vendors, while also utilizing organic farming practices and all-natural flavors. Our flavor formula is provided by one of the largest flavor companies in the world, Archer Daniels Midland, and our distributor, RNDC is the second largest liquor/spirit distributor in the United States.



BRANDING THE SPIRIT OF LIBERATION: 

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND TRADEMARKS


Our brand development team focuses on the creation of easily identifiable, ubiquitous images that distinguish our logo apart from the competition.  The Spirit of Liberation, Agave and Sword, and emblazoned Sandino are all REGISTERED TRADEMARKS of our Company.

ONLINE DIGITAL MARKETING PROGRAM


On the marketing front, we have launched an online store and hired industry-leading specialists to help us drive our digital marketing and other key marketing programs such as SEO-optimized content, email funnel marketing, trade PR, social media marketing. Our tequila is now available for purchase in 40 states as of via our online store. We have an active ongoing social media marketing and sales campaign via a partnership with a major data analytics and marketing company.




We also have an at-home drinking marketing strategy, whereby we are partnering with bartenders to create ‘how-to’ video content to both promote at-home drinking occasions and support bartenders across the country via Instagram. Ted Collins, “Miami New Times Bartender of the Year” for 2017 is our first featured bartender. 



why invest



Sandinista is unique in its approach and offering, and is highly scalable with its large distribution network

In an industry that is seeing a large number of artisanal, craft, and small batch startups, Sandinista stands out as a highly scalable, easily differentiated, ultra-premium flavored tequila that successfully leverages a significant grass roots campaign movement on a minimal budget. 


We are one of a select few, pre-revenue spirit companies serviced by a national distributor. Our distribution contract with Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) provides us with a significant competitive advantage over other craft spirits that rely on smaller distribution networks. Become our investor as we grow our company to become the first action sports branded spirit and the first sriracha flavored tequila, “The Spirit of Liberation.”


THE VISION


Our goal is to unite the tribes of action sports, live music and street art. In 5 years we hope to redefine the liquor and spirit industry’s relationship with action sports.


Part of our tribal guerilla marketing strategy will involve supporting non-profits and activists with interests that align with the multitude of tribes that make up the Sandinista target audience. We began our non-profit outreach with skate parks, providing them with assistance. We have also created an alliance with the Lion Project, Denver. A non-profit that helps orphans obtain adopted parents by creating a video media to share their story.

Their creativity and talent transferred, and they all pushed each other in their musical abilities, as well as their snowboarding.

Luke’s life drastically changed during an Olympic qualifying event in New Zealand, where he had one of the worst crashes that the snowboarding world had ever seen. During his recovery, he came to understand the full healing power that music has, and turned a career ending moment into an opportunity.

SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
