About El Bandarra
The taste of Barcelona in a bottle, El Bandarra is a refreshing range of natural aperitifs from Barcelona crafted from quality Spanish wine and Mediterranean botanicals.
El Bandarra was founded by Alex Virgili, his twin brother Albert and older brother, Jordi. As a bold, natural-born salesman willing to take any risk to succeed, Alex heads the sales team and is based in Barcelona. A member of the family which owns the 19th Century winery Casa Berger, Alex has one simple goal: to lead the new wave of entrepreneurs in the drinks business with his revolutionary ideas, category-challenging products and one-of-a-kind events and parties. Alex has drawn on his experience in the wine industry to create a range of ground-breaking natural, wine-based aperitifs, El Bandarra, which reflect the rituals and culture of Barcelona.
The El Bandarra range includes El Bandarra Al Fresco, Blanco, Rojo and Rosé Aperitifs. The Bandarra bottle design reflects a time when the bars of Barcelona hand painted the tapas they offered on their windows with colourful lettering to passers by.
