London Mezcal Week (LMW) will return for a second year this September, with a host of tastings, dinners, seminars, parties, and pop-up events taking place throughout the city. Launched by Melanie Symonds (Quiquiriqui Mezcal founder) and Thea Cummin (Dangerous Don Mezcal founder), LMW aims to promote this much-misunderstood category to both consumers and the trade by way of education, fun, and, presumably, hangovers.
LMW highlights include:
The Mezcal Festival which will provide cocktails by Ojo Jojo and food by Santiago Lastra in an al fresco bar, with DJs on hand to provide a suitable soundtrack for what will hopefully be a sunny, outdoor fiesta.
The Tasting Room, in which you can exchange £25 for a ticket to taste one of the largest mezcal selections in the UK, including liquids never before available in this country. There will also be opportunities to meet and geek out with mezcal producers.
A full lineup of events and a link to buy tickets can be found on the London Mezcal Week website.
