Rid yourself of the foul taste of that entry level tequila you shot with table salt and lime in dingy basement clubs at 18. For the 5th year running, Tequila and Mezcal Fest presents the perfect opportunity for budding aficionados to set their tequila record straight and for current connoisseurs to get their hands on exclusive, artisanal products. This weekend-long festivity infuses autumnal London with a vibrant celebration of Latin America’s finest agave spirits, accompanied by the best of Mexican food, music and culture.
Expect a crash course in tequila and mezcal production, learn to drink it properly – never shoot, always sip – and how to mix a perfect margarita with Patrón’s Margarita Masterclasses. Small-scale agave spirit producers will rub shoulders with titans such as Herradura, Don Julio and Patrón, so sample away while munching on tacos and tostadas from London’s best Mexican restaurants; Café Pacifico, Taqueria and Peyotito. Get your tickets, including free samples, tokens and entry to masterclasses and live performances here.
