El Güel is a collection of Mexican spirits created specifically for house pours. El Güel spirits are all affordable, of highest quality and authentically Mexican. We choose the best producers and ensure fair pay, sustainability and transparency. The name “El Güel” (pronounced /el wel/) is our homage to the myriad people of Mexican heritage in the US hospitality industry as it is just a Spanish-ization of "house pours."
