Heineken USA is no longer selling its tequila-flavored beer Desperados, a lager aged in tequila barrels that launched in the U.S. in 2014.Desperados, which is sold in 85 international markets, had been handled globally by Wieden & Kennedy. But that relationship ended this past summer. Heineken USA began Desperados' U.S. rollout in Florida and Georgia, with plans to begin nationwide distribution in 2015, and referred to it as a "spirited beer." The launch advertising in the U.S. used a campaign that was running internationally at the time.But Desperados remained a regional brand with the Southeast being the main focus area.
