This weekend is the UK’s biggest tequila festival. Now in its 5th year, The Tequila & Mezcal Fest has cemented itself as one of, if not the most, important events for Tequila & Mezcal in the UK.
New tequilas, old tequilas, plenty of mezcals, some other agave products, and a lot of fun. If you haven’t bought your tickets for the festival – buy them on their website here.
