A one-off opportunity to sample the finest Mexican food and beverage, meet distillers and get closer to the soul of Mexico.

Launched in 2014, the official Tequila&Mezcal Fest is the UK’s first event born with the objective to educate about the finest Mexican spirits. Every year we bring the world’s newest brands and the most artisan spirits to the most iconic venues across London, opening for you the doors to the soul of Mexico. Expect authentic Mexican street food and snacks, tacos, music, masterclasses, signature cocktails and – of course – Paloma and Margarita Bars.

Endorsed by the Mexican Embassy in the UK and by the CRT Tequila Regulatory Council, the CRM Mezcal Regulatory Council and the government of Jalisco Mexico, the Festival reached this year its 6th edition in London.

The festival celebrates both traditional and contemporary Mexico. It is a true journey across the country, a one-off opportunity to sample the finest agave spirits and meet distillers and creators behind one of the most up-and-coming spirit categories.

What to expect this year:

  • More than 20 new Tequila brands from Mexico, exhibiting in Europe for the first time
  • The greatest spirit brands showcasing their products and sharing industry insights
  • 2 fully equipped on-site bars selling thirst quenching Margaritas and Palomas
  • The most authentic Mexican street food and snacks 
  • A canalside terrace in trendy Hackney
  • Seminars led by industry experts
  • A lineup of performances and entertainment

      The agenda is being updated as we go along with the planning, and it will be soon published. Meanwhile keep an eye on our website and our Instagram and Facebook pages to read the latest updates and news about the event.
