What’s La Piñata you ask? Let’s break it down.
The heart of the Agave plant and the starting point for all Tequila & Mezcal.
A totem made of papier maché brought out at celebrations and heavily associated with Mexico.
A celebration of agave spirits, Mexican culture and an opportunity to taste some of the best Tequila and Mezcal side by side.
It’s time to truly appreciate just how complex agave spirits can be! The terroir of each pińa, the roast, fermentation, and distillation details each producer hones and even the time resting afterwards means that each has a rich story to tell.
As a result, Tequila and Mezcal are hugely diverse spirits that can offer enthusiasts a vast range of flavours and ideas to engage with.
La Piñata brings together 20 producers, who will be equipped with dozens of Tequilas and Mezcals between them and placed shoulder to shoulder for you to have a chance to really explore the category.
While all the producers will be there to talk you through their ranges, there will also be a bar serving up the very best Margaritas, Palomas and Boilermakers for when you fancy something longer.
Each person is given a tasting glass to go and appreciate the spirits on offer, with small samples and an explanation from each producer included in the ticket price.
There’s loads of water available for free across the show, while the bar and street food stands will have extras for those who want something different.
