El Destilado is an independent liquor bottler and importer, founded by Michael Sager of Sager + Wilde, Alex Wolpert of East London Liquor Company and independent creative director/ photographer Charlie McKay. Brought together by a keen obsession for exploring new places, tastes and aromas, they aim to highlight spirits that fall outside the normative categorization.
El Destilado works with small, independent distillers to source, import and bottle rare spirits from across the world for inquisitive consumers. In a world where support and desire for traceability and ethical trade is paramount, they have begun to pioneer a unique method of sourcing previously untapped supplies of small scale liquid.
