In honour of agave spirits, London Mezcal Week is back for its second year to give the capital a very Mexican flavour between 10th – 16th September 2018. Focusing on traditionally made mezcal brands, the week-long fiesta will take the form of a series of events across London, including tastings, dinners, talks and parties, culmination in a 2 day Mezcal Festival. There will also be pop-up Mezcalerias and cocktails specials appearing in bars all over London throughout the week to give you a taste of Mexico, whether you’re new to the spirit or a mezcal aficionado. ¡Salud!
London Mezcal Week, organised by two of London’s most dedicated mezcal enthusiasts, Thea Cumming and Melanie Symonds, aims to celebrate the mezcal category and bring it to a wider audience. The week-long programme of events will showcase the diverse and numerous ways it can be enjoyed – whether on its own, in cocktails or with food. Working solely with traditional mezcal producers – some of who date back generations within the same family – the week will also see some of the brands flying to the UK for the first time.
SPECIAL GUEST - PHIL BAYLEY
We are excited to announce that for London Mezcal Week 2018 we will be joined by Phil Bayly who is the World Mezcal Ambassador, appointed by the CRM. Phil's commitment to the category is second to none and we are very lucky to be joined by Phil this year. Phil will be hosting a number of events across the week and sharing his extensive agave knowledge. Phil works supporting many small brands in Mexico and will be accompanying the attendees from Mexico at a number of events for the week. Phil will also be joining his old friend and European Tequila Ambassador Tomas Estes at a very special Agave Love talk, the first time the pair have run and event in the UK, ever.
